More information:

The new Elgato Stream Deck XL comes with a stand that gives you two different options for whatever works best for the streamer.

The holder has a hollow center that allows you to run cords through and better organize them and it has the Elgato logo on the back.

If you prefer the flatter look, you can remove the stand and use it from that angle. The only thing that could have made this a little better would be a more adjustable stand that gives you more than two options.

The Elgato software provides a display of buttons as you would see them on the broadcast platform and updates with very little lag.

There are several default keyboard shortcuts available that are more suitable for streamers, however, there are customization options available to use outside of those provided by default.

Another great feature is the multiple button actions. For example, if you follow a process to start your flow, instead of customizing each button to perform a task, you can customize a button to perform the entire process. This gives you more options and space for more personalized buttons.

Do you have two streamers in the house? If so, you have the option of creating multiple profiles to suit the needs of each streamer.

Amazon provides the product description as follows:

Boasting 32 customizable LCD keys ready to launch unlimited actions with a single touch, Stream Deck XL takes live production control to a whole new level. Instantly activate scenes, launch media, switch cameras, adjust lighting, adjust audio, post tweets, and more. Directly control your entire configuration. And get immediate visual feedback to confirm each of your orders. Stream Deck XL integrates seamlessly with your favorite tools and platforms including OBS Studio, XSplit, Stream Labs, Twitch, YouTube, Mixer, OvrStream, VoiceMod, Vmix, and StreamElements. All of this so that you can easily manage your workflow and engage your audience like never before.


The Elgato Stream Deck XL offers an even better version of the original streaming deck with more buttons and plenty of customization possibilities.

Streamers are the primary target of this Streaming Deck. Even so, you can customize the buttons to perform functions in programs such as Photoshop. There are so many things you can program to make this streaming deck to make your life easier.

If you are a streamer, this is a great tool. This will make your flow more efficient and smoother. It gives you direct access to processes so you can focus more on entertainment and less on functions.
