As is standard for an Elgato product, the Key Light Air comes in a stylish cardboard box which accents the light itself, as well as many of the features on the front panel.

The back side of the box gives us an idea of just how the Key Light Air can be utilized in a streaming setup. In addition to a good visual of the product in use, Elgato also gives us additional feature information about the light itself, as well as the complimentary Control Center application, which we will cover later on in this review.

With the box opened up, we find the Key Light Air safely bundled in a molded cardboard box, with each component in its own spot. Most components are also protected by their own plastic wrap, which we definitely appreciate.

Included with the major components of the Key Light Air are a few items that are used to connect the components to each other and power the light itself. A power supply with multiple adapters for various plug standards is included to power the panel, while an adjustable ball head mount is included to attach the light to the pole, and a threaded screw is there to attach the pole to the base.
