Elgato’s Stream Deck Hot New Device
Soundboards have been a thing for the longest time and most of used to go that extra mile to implement the tech to things that we do like streaming. You kids today have it easy, back in the Justin.tv days I had to buy expensive pieces to broadcast, get a mixer and a streaming device that was the size of a router in order to do what I needed to do. Not to mention fix my computer with better components so it would not blow up while streaming. Jeez, I sound like an old man now. Nowadays you have the luxury of downloadable programs to embed a soundboard into your streams and a small device the size of a cell phone to broadcast your streams. Now Elgato has come out with a new take on soundboards with the Stream Deck.
You’re creating quality content backed by the best tech on the planet. But you want to do more. With Stream Deck, trigger up to 210 actions via 15 LCD keys. Take control of your content. And focus on what matters most: your audience.
Use the Stream Deck app to drag and drop actions onto keys, and personalize them with custom icons. Tap to switch scenes, launch media, tweet your feats, and more. Level-up your onscreen antics with GIFs, images, videos and audio. Traditionally this level of control was exclusive to mainstream entertainment broadcasters. Now, it’s at your fingertips.
This is going to make streaming so much easier. You can free up hotkey space on your keyboard and won’t have to worry about what button does what anymore. This is a soundboard and hotkey all in one with full on LCD screens that you can customize to match anything to set for it. Let’s watch a video.
