Razer’s Kiyo Pro Ultra boasts the “the largest sensor ever” in



(Pocket-lint) – Razer is adding to its webcam with a new plug-and-play camera that promises DSLR-like quality and AI-enhanced features like auto-tracking and auto-exposure. 

The Razer Kiyo Pro Ultra is the latest addition to the company’s line-up of Kiyo webcams and one that claims to use the largest sensor ever in a webcam. That’s a 1/1.2″ sensor vs the usual 1/4″ sensor you’d find on other lesser webcams. It boasts a Sony Starvis Sensor 2 and the ability to capture up to 4K footage.  

It’s able to convert RAW 4K 30FPS to 24FPS 4K uncompressed for a truer experience with NV12 decoding. More importantly it’s designed to make you look good on camera in more ways than one.

POCKET-LINT VIDEO OF THE DAY

Whether you’re streaming or just on important Teams calls, the Razer Kiyo Pro Ultra will make you stand out. It’s got an ultra-large f/1.7 aperture lens with “True Bokeh” effect capabilities and the hardware to work in a variety of lighting conditions. It’s HDR capable too, so your background lighting will shine as well. 

This webcam has a number of advanced face tracking features, AI-powered imaging for automatically tracking you in the frame and both autofocus and auto exposure as well. In real-world use, Razer says this means that you’ll always be clearly visible while your background can be blurred by hardware rather than software – for a more professional look. 

The camera has a built-in hardware-level privacy shutter so you can just twist that and block the view if you want your privacy. As well as a privacy cap to cover and protect it if you want to travel with it. 

As a complete package, the Razer Kiyo Pro Ultra is meant to be an alternative to a DSLR setup without all the hassle and expense of extra lenses, capture cards and more. Quality doesn’t come cheap though, with this new webcam set to cost you an eye-watering $299.99.
