Elgato, the company known for its live streaming tools and capture cards, is now selling a Wi-Fi LED Light Strip with wireless smartphone, PC and Stream Deck control. The company is also launching Wave Panels, a stylish set of sound absorption panels to enhance the audio quality of your home recordings or live streams.
Starting at just $ 60, the Elgato Light Strip is one of the most affordable smart LED light strips from a major manufacturer. It clocks in at 2.5 feet in length and comes with a wireless controller and power adapter. And while the Light Strip doesn̵
Like the Philips Hue smart LED strip, Elgato’s Light Strip combines the common red, green and blue LEDs with special “warm” and “cool” lights. This combination offers a wide variety of colors and atmospheres – much wider than what you get with comparably priced LED strips. Elgato also boasts that the Light Strip doesn’t flicker on the camera, which is perfect for streamers.
Elgato’s sound-absorbing Wave Panels are equally innovative, with a snap-together design that looks much cleaner than traditional sound panels. Each panel uses a mix of low and high density acoustic foam to keep sound from bouncing off your walls and into your microphone. The panels should make your audio recordings or live streams sound more professional, and they look pretty cool too.
A Wave Panels starter set costs $ 100 and comes with six panels. Each panel covers 1.5 square feet of wall and comes with adhesive mounting strips, although you can mount the panels with screws or other hardware if you have textured walls or live in a humid environment.
The Elgato Light Strip costs $ 60 and will go on sale later this month. Wave Panels are available now for $ 100 (or $ 39 for an expansion kit), but won’t ship until April 2021.
