Since being acquired by Corsair in 2018, Elgato has continued to release new products that impress. Keeping with that momentum, Elgato announced the Key Light Air, a smaller version of their popular Key Light, as well as the 4K60 S+ capture device.
Key Light Air
Based on the existing Key Light, the Key Light Air is a smaller version of the popular LED lighting panel used by streamers and content creators. At up to 1400 lumens, the Key Light Air provides plenty of light to highlight the streamer, and the wireless connectivity lets you quickly adjust the brightness and color tone via the Control Center app on your phone, PC, or Mac.
Being an Elgato product, you can also make adjustments via Stream Deck hardware, or even Corsair’s new K95 RGB Platinum XT. The Key Light Air stays in place via stands this time, instead of clamps like the larger version. Available individually, the Key Light Air will sell for $129.99.
With an on-board HVEC chip capable of encoding 4K HDR content, the Elgato 4K60 S+ takes the strain off of your gaming hardware, and provides lag-free passthrough at 60 frames per second. And when you need to capture your gameplay footage, the onboard SD card slot is the perfect destination for it, without the need for a computer. And if you have your PC handy, you can send the content directly to your system via the USB 3.0 connection.
A simple button on the front flashes when recording, and is an easy way to start and stop your recordings. When we were taking a look at the 4K60 S+, we simply hit record, played a game for a few minutes, stopped the recording, and took the SD card from the unit to a nearby PC where we could begin the editing process. Priced at $399, the Elgato 4K60 S+ will be available later this month.
