If you’re a YouTube creator or a gamer who likes to live stream your gameplay, Elgato has an interesting gimmick on the way. It provides a hardware keyboard similar to those used in TV studios, allowing you to instantly call up anything from starting or stopping a Twitch stream to deleting intro and end graphics…
You get 15 LCD keys that the companion app lets you customize with drag-and-drop functionality, giving access to up to 210 actions.
One-touch touch operation lets you switch scenes, launch media, adjust sound and more, while visual feedback confirms your every command. Traditionally, this level of control was exclusive to mainstream entertainment broadcasters. Now it’s at your fingertips.
Customizing the Stream deck is effortless. Just drag and drop actions onto the keys, and you’re good to go. Similarly, drag and hold one key over another to create a folder. Even better, assign your keys custom icons to fully personalize them.
Elgato says the Stream Deck is compatible with all Macs running macOS 10.11 or later, and that it “automatically detects your scenes, media, and audio sources, allowing you to control them with the touch of a button.”
The device costs $149.95 and is available for pre-order now for shipping on May 15. It’s available.
