Fall and the holiday season is my favorite time of the year because of all the new technology products launching. That being said last night Logitech introduced the Logitech® C922 Pro Stream Webcam , its newest webcam since the Logitech HD Pro Webcam C920. The C922 Pro Stream Webcam lets you broadcast and record vibrant, true-to-life HD 1080p or 720p 60fps video with background replacement and a fully adjustable tripod. There are two SKUs of the C922 (both versions cost $99) the C922 and C922X.
As you all know I am a HUGE Logitech fan and looking forward to the opportunity to do a product review on the Logitech® C922 Pro Stream Webcam soon. Till then below is the official press release from Logitech. Enjoy!
Stand Out From the Crowd with the New Logitech C922 Pro Stream Webcam
Broadcast Your Gameplay in Full HD 1080p or 720p 60fps
NEWARK, Calif. — Sept. 29, 2016 and LAUSANNE, Switzerland, Sept. 30, 2016 — Today, Logitech (SIX: LOGN) (NASDAQ: LOGI) announced its newest webcam, the Logitech® C922 Pro Stream Webcam. Designed to meet the needs of serious streamers, the C922 Pro Stream Webcam lets you stream and record vibrant, true-to-life HD 1080p video at 30 frames per second (fps) or 720p at 60fps, features dynamic background replacement software, powered by Personify, and a 3-month XSplit recording and streaming premium license.
Tweet now: Stand out from the crowd. @Logitech introduces the C922 Pro Stream Webcam designed for serious streamers.
“Social video platforms such as Twitch have exploded in the past few years, and with more than 2 million streamers on that platform alone, the way this new generation of gamers play and learn about games has forever changed,” said Guillaume Bourelly, portfolio and product manager of webcams at Logitech. “With the C922 Pro Stream Webcam, we are taking game casting to the next level so you can easily broadcast your gameplay like a pro, better engage with your community, and stand out from the crowd.”
With the C922 Pro Stream Webcam, you can broadcast in HD at 60fps for a more fluid motion, so every detail of your gameplay can be witnessed by your community at the same speed as your game. The webcam also includes a dynamic background replacement feature that uses intelligent shape recognition to separate the gamer from their background, without the need for a cumbersome green screen. Gamers can then overlay the video of themselves on the gaming stream with popular broadcasting apps such as OBS and XSplit.
Logitech has taken the best of what made the award-winning Logitech HD Pro Webcam C920, the most widely recommended webcam by professional gamers and vloggers, and improved upon that legacy to deliver a higher video quality experience. With automatic low light correction and sharp autofocus, the C922 webcam adjusts to flickering room lights or multiple computer screens, so you can stream clear video even in dim lighting. And, no matter what angle you broadcast from, two omnidirectional noise cancelling microphones enable a crisp stereo audio with no-drop streaming and recorded video.
Logitech worked closely with the leading gaming broadcast software company, XSplit, to integrate its popular live streaming and recording applications with the C922 webcam by adding predefined settings and capabilities to enable the best user experience. The C922 webcam comes bundled with a 3-month XSplit Premium license, which includes complete access to the professional-grade tools and features of both XSplit Broadcaster and XSplit Gamecaster, so you can quickly and easily start streaming any type of content right out of the box.
The Logitech C922 Pro Stream Webcam is available today at Logitech.com for a suggested retail price of $99.99. For more information, please visit Logitech.com or our blog.
