Elgato Takes Streaming to the Next Level With New Pro. Content Creator Tools @ CES 2019
CES 2019, Las Vegas, NV, January 7th, 2019 – Elgato, the leading provider of hardware and software for content creators, today unveiled Elgato Key Light, Screen Link, Stream Deck SDK, and Thunderbolt 3™ Pro Dock, combining to make up the biggest launch in the company’s history. From advanced lighting and connectivity to mobile streaming and increased software accessibility, Elgato is making it easier than ever for creators to produce and broadcast their own professional, high-quality video content.
Elgato Key Light is the first of its kind: an LED light panel developed specifically for modern content creators. Key Light easily clamps to your desk, adding professional lighting to your setup while taking up a fraction of the space of traditional light boxes or lamps. Key Light wirelessly communicates with your PC or Mac, letting you instantly control lighting brightness and warmth via Elgato’s convenient Control Center app or a key press on Elgato’s highly acclaimed Stream Deck. Key Light shines with 80 premium OSRAM LEDs that output a massive 2,500 lumens while generating practically no heat.
Elgato Screen Link is a new app for iOS devices, helping content creators easily share their mobile gameplay or camera. Screen Link uses proprietary wireless technology to transmit your mobile device’s screen or camera to a computer for capture, enabling effortless live streaming and recording with just two touches. Screen Link streamlines production by linking your mobile device to your desktop studio, connecting directly with popular apps such as OBS Studio and Streamlabs OBS. Share mobile gameplay for a full AR app experience on stream, or use your phone as a wireless camera to make content more personal than ever. Screen Link is available as a free download, able to stream for up to fifteen minutes per session, with the option to upgrade to the unlimited full functionality of Screen Link Pro for a one-time purchase of $9.99 coming soon.
The long-awaited Stream Deck SDK unleashes the full power of Elgato Stream Deck. Since launching the popular broadcast controller in May 2017, Elgato has continued to integrate an ever-growing number of apps and platforms into its software, but Stream Deck SDK opens up boundless possibilities. Available immediately as part of Stream Deck’s free 4.0 update, now anyone can develop custom actions for Stream Deck and Stream Deck Mini, giving them vastly increased capabilities limited only by the community’s imagination. Elgato is proud to launch Stream Deck SDK with five partners: NewBlueFX, Voicemod, StreamElements, Soundflow and vMix. All users can download plugins developed by these partners starting today, with many more on the way soon.
Elgato Thunderbolt 3 Pro Dock helps you make the most of your Mac or PC’s Thunderbolt 3 port, letting you connect all your favorite devices with a single cable at their full power with lightning-fast 40Gb/s throughput. Thunderbolt 3 Pro Dock is equipped with 2x USB 3.1 Gen 2 Type C ports, 2x USB 3.1 Gen 1 Type A ports, 2x Thunderbolt 3 ports, DisplayPort 1.2, a Gigabit Ethernet port, and 3.5mm headset and audio jacks. A new SD/micro SD card reader will also prove a welcome addition for content creators and camera users. Whether it’s for increased productivity, content creation or gaming, Elgato Thunderbolt 3 Pro Dock connects you to all your devices with just one cable.
