Play Out Loud: Logitech G Unveils Streaming Gear to Help Content Creators Stream Clearly and Confidently
Logitech G, a brand of Logitech (SIX: LOGN) (NASDAQ: LOGI) and leading innovator of gaming technologies and gear, today released three new cutting-edge products that redefine the gaming and streaming experience, the two new mics Logitech G Yeti GX, Logitech G Yeti Orb and a new light Logitech G Litra Beam LX.
More than ever, gamers are creating content and streaming during gameplay, and top tier lighting and audio are at the heart of delivering great content. Playing with broadcast-style audio and pro-level lighting is critical for creation success, and can prevent a stream from looking dull and sounding distorted. Great audio and lighting enable you to play together and express yourself to your community, whether you’re chatting with friends on Discord, growing your community on Twitch, or broadcasting to thousands of followers on YouTube.
“Together design and engineering experts at Blue Microphone and Logitech G partnered to create a unique gaming microphone with professional-grade audio and a host of features tailor-made for gamers,” said Vincent Borel, vice president at Logitech G. “We understand that gamers want to engage and share their experience with their audience. For those that play to be seen, this is the gear that enables them to play together and express themselves to your community.”
Leveraging innovations from Logitech G, these three new products feature key technologies like LIGHTSYNC RGB technology, for deeper immersion into the game; integration into Logitech G’s GHUB software, for customised lighting effects; and the addition of BlueVOICE! support with our new microphones. Now, users can expand their Logitech G ecosystem and celebrate who they are as a gaming content creator with personalised colours and themes.
Based on the iconic Yeti design, the Yeti GX is a premium, broadcast-style gaming microphone with dynamic capsule technology that delivers unparalleled audio performance and for the first time Yeti GX uses the classic scroll wheel from iconic Logitech G gaming mice to provide one handed control of mic gain. Yeti GX also features a supercardioid pickup pattern that elevates voice while rejecting room nose, key clicks and other background sounds.
Yeti GX’s Smart Audio Lock locks in the ideal audio settings with the simple press of the scroll wheel, for consistent audio every time and automatic gain adjustment to prevent clipping and reduce background distractions. Logitech G’s Blue VO!CE technology enables streamers to dial in their sound and select from a variety of filters, improving the basic audio signal from the mic and creating customised sound effects.
Yeti GX is a USB plug-and-play mic for effortless setup and streaming. Yeti GX is also compatible with the Blue Compass boom arm and, coming soon, an updated Logitech G version of the Compass arm.
Yeti Orb is a sleek, camera-ready USB gaming mic that delivers best-in-class audio performance and ease-of-use. Designed for gamers new to streaming, Yeti Orb is built with a custom condenser capsule and brings a streamlined look to content creation and features an RGB logo and status light with customisable illumination effects that can be accessed pre- or mid-stream. Unlike other mics currently on the market, Yeti GX and Yeti Orb manage maximum sound pressure, perfectly optimised for today’s gamers and content creators. In those heightened moments where voice audio is louder, such as during intense firefights and battles, Yeti GX and Yeti Orb minimise distortion and with Blue VO!CE technology filters, customise voice sounds to create fun effects and protect against clipping, all available through the G HUB app.
The pinnacle of what high-quality lighting should look like, Litra Beam LX is a dual-sided RGB streaming key light with TrueSoft technology for shaping and directing light so everyone can look their best at all times.
Utilising LIGHTSYNC RGB, Litra Beam LX’s 16 million colour combinations lets gamers personalise their colour themes turning their studio into a pink, illuminated haven, a virtual light show, or bring their stream to life with whichever vibe they’re feeling that day.
Logitech G’s TrueSoft technology delivers cinematic colour accuracy and advanced diffusion for eliminating harsh shadows with adjustable brightness, colour temperatures ranging from warm candlelight to cool blue (2700K – 6500K) and RGB settings. Certified safe for all-day streaming, Litra Beam LX has cleared the strictest UL testing guidelines.
In addition, Logitech G is announcing full support for all LIGHTSYNC-enabled devices with Windows Dynamic Lighting once it becomes available. Windows Dynamic Lighting is a new, RGB lighting tool on Windows 11 that allows users to coordinate effects across many brands of RGB-enabled products, now including Logitech G. This new capability expands the already powerful LIGHTSYNC controls for devices like Litra Beam LX and Logitech G mice, keyboards and headsets for a completely unified, immersive play experience.
