Razer Kiyo Pro Ultra – The Largest Sensor Ever in a Webcam for DSLR-like high quality
The bigger the sensor, the better the image quality: The Razer Kiyo Pro Ultra redefines the visual standards of content creation and streaming. Boasting the largest sensor ever used in a webcam, creators can experience DSLR-level detail and clarity with the plug-and-play simplicity of the most powerful webcam from Razer so far.
The heart of Razer’s new professional webcam is an industry leading ultra-large Sony 1/1.2″ STARVIS™ 2 sensor with a 2.9 μm pixel size to capture more light and image data in every pixel for exceptional detail and color. In order to maximize the sensor’s full potential, the Kiyo Pro Ultra is fitted with a custom, ultra-large F/1.7 aperture lens that can capture almost four times more light compared to other webcams, providing crisp, clear images even in low-light conditions.
This exceptional image fidelity is maintained thanks to a cutting-edge processor that can convert raw 4K 30 FPS (or 1080P 60 FPS) footage into uncompressed 4K 24 FPS, 1440p 30 FPS, or 1080p 60 FPS directly into your stream. To guarantee creators are always the center of attention, the Kiyo Pro Ultra’s AI-powered Face Tracking Auto-focus tracks the user’s face to ensure sharp, steady focus while artfully blurring the background thanks to the true bokeh effect. All this without the need for any supplementary hardware or software.
Coupled with High Dynamic Range (HDR) support at 30FPS, creators can achieve true-to-life colors thanks to the Kiyo Pro Ultra’s ability to automatically refine lighting and contrast while correcting over or under exposed areas, in order to add more visual detail and textures that make colors pop, even for darker or lighter tones. Creators can take this further with Razer Synapse which allows them to finetune or tweak their content quality with a comprehensive selection of customizable settings including ISO, shutter speed, pan, tilt, and more.
For more information on the Razer Kiyo Pro Ultra, please see here. It will be available on January 2023 starting at $299.99 USD / €349.99 MSRP exclusively at Razer.com and RazerStores.

All of this is packed into a compact, premium form factor with a simple setup, allowing for a clutter-free desktop.
Combining beamforming surround sound with head-tracking AI technology, the Leviathan V2 Pro delivers immersive 3D audio thanks to the integrated IR camera that detects the user’s position. This allows the soundbar to adapt the audio beams to the listener’s positioning in real-time, ensuring that they are always in the sweet spot for the best audio experience.
Powered by THX® Spatial Audio for the immersive experience, combined with Audioscenic user adaptive beamforming, the soundbar provides true-to-life 3D audio for all your entertainment needs. 3D audio can be experienced in two modes: THX® Spatial Audio Virtual Headset is for any stereo content, providing you with pinpoint positional audio previously only found in headsets, while THX® Spatial Audio Virtual Speakers is for any multi-channel content that provides a wide, room-filling soundstage that users would normally experience with a full home theatre system.

The MMO king is Back And Better than Ever: RAZER Launches The New Razer NAGA V2 PRO
Boasting 3 swappable side plates, 19+1 programmable buttons, a Razer HyperScroll Pro Wheel, and Razer HyperSpeed Wireless, the Razer Naga V2 Pro packs more than enough power to dominate in every genre.
Razer™, the leading global lifestyle brand for gamers, today announced the new Razer Naga V2 Pro and Naga V2 HyperSpeed, the latest in Razer’s genre-busting MMO and battle-royale mice. Designed primarily for MMOs, with 3 interchangeable side plates on the Naga V2 Pro, and a wealth of new features in both mice, the new Naga V2 Pro and Naga HyperSpeed signal the return of Razer’s most adaptable mouse, now better than ever.
Ultimate control and adaptability
The new Naga V2 Pro continues this legacy of excellence, with a series of upgrades and improvements that retain the shape and feel of the Naga series that players love, while focusing on the features that matter most to MMO players.
Boasting 3 interchangeable side plates, 19+1 remappable buttons, 22 programmable controls, the new Razer HyperScroll Pro Wheel, Razer HyperSpeed Wireless, Razer Focus Pro 30K Optical Sensor, Razer Optical Mouse Switches Gen-3, and a range of charging and connectivity options, the Naga V2 Pro is a total upgrade on the Naga Pro, ready to meet the needs of today’s gamers in every genre of game.
“The Razer Naga line of mice are widely regarded as the kings of MMO games thanks to their modularity, customizability and flexibility,” said Chris Mitchell, Head of Razer’s PC Gaming Division. “Sporting more scrollwheel customization options, wireless charging compatibility, and a lot of other upgrades, the Razer Naga V2 Pro is set to continue the legacy of the Razer MMO mouse line.”
Spin it your way with the Razer HyperScroll Pro Wheel
The new Razer HyperScroll Pro Wheel brings near-unlimited customization to the Naga V2 Pro, with intelligent settings to customize scrolling action and feel. Users can toggle through 6 modes of scroll wheel settings, including a user-customized mode, all available within Razer Synapse 3 and accessible on the fly. With a Standard mode for more typical in-game selections, Distinct mode for easy, definitive scrolling and an Ultrafine mode for the highest number of inputs, the Naga V2 Pro has a further 2 presets; Adaptive scrolling, to give less resistance the faster the wheel is scrolled, and Free Scrolling for always-on accelerated scrolling.
The final option for the Razer HyperScroll Pro Wheel is its Custom mode, where a user can make near infinite adjustments to get the perfect scroll feel and function tuned to their liking. Through Razer Synapse 3, users can adjust the scroll tension, number of steps and customize the force curve between steps, setting everything from a smooth, free spinning wheel through to a positive step wheel with as few as 8 distinct steps, or take it all the way to 96 steps – and then adjust how the tick between each step feels. These levels of customization allow users to minutely adjust the HyperScroll Pro Wheel function and tactile feedback, giving them the perfect feel and action they require.
The Naga V2 Pro features the very latest in Razer’s wireless technologies, both for connection and power. Boasting Razer HyperSpeed Wireless, the Naga V2 Pro enjoys a high-performance, low-latency connection for lag-free gaming while adaptive frequency monitoring and switching, allows gamers to enjoy a fast, uninterrupted wireless connection, even in the noisiest signal environments. For complete versatility and ease of use, the Naga V2 Pro can also be connected via Bluetooth or the included SpeedFlex Type C cable, to allow play while charging.
Featuring tremendous battery life of up to 150 hours on HyperSpeed Wireless, or 300 hours on Bluetooth, the Naga V2 Pro can also be charged wirelessly, as it is compatible with the Razer Wireless Charging Puck and the Razer Mouse Dock Pro (both sold separately). The Naga V2 Pro also supports Razers multi-device wireless connection, allowing users who already own a Razer HyperSpeed enabled keyboard to connect to the included Naga V2 Pro USB dongle, freeing up a USB port on their system.
It’s all about the optics
Topping off the updates in the Naga V2 Pro are the new Razer Focus Pro 30K Optical Sensor and Razer Optical Mouse Switches Gen-3. Razer’s brand-new sensor provides flawless tracking performance on a wide variety of surfaces including glass and is supported by intelligent functions for enhanced aim and control such as smart tracking, asymmetric cut-off, and Motion Sync.
The Naga V2 Pro sports the Razer Optical Mouse Switches Gen-3, bringing unrivalled durability and speed with a blistering 0.2ms actuation with no debounce delay, an improved 90 million click lifecycle, and zero double-clicking thanks to its use of infra-red light to measure switch presses.
The Razer Naga V2 HyperSpeed
Also announced today is the Naga V2 HyperSpeed. Featuring 20 programmable controls, Razer HyperScroll Technology, Razer Focus Pro 30K Optical Sensor and Razer Mechanical Mouse Switches Gen-2, the Naga V2 HyperSpeed is ideal for the MMO gamer looking to declutter their desktop and go cable-free.
Powered by a single AA battery, diagonally mounted within the mouse body for balance and weight distribution, the Naga V2 HyperSpeed gives up to 400 hours on Bluetooth and 250 hours of seamless low-latency gaming on Razer HyperSpeed Wireless.
Accompanied by the precision and accuracy of the Razer Focus Pro 30K Optical Sensor, backed up by the speed and durability of the Razer Mechanical Mouse Switch Gen-2, and connected over the seamless, low-latency performance of Razer HyperSpeed Wireless, the Naga V2 HyperSpeed is every gamer’s raiding companion.
