Razer has added two new products to its Broadcaster series - a lineup of gaming products targeted towards streamers.

The Razer Kiyo 4-megapixel camera features video outputs of 720p at 60 FPS HD up to 1080p at 30FPS. It also has an adjustable ring light with 12 brightness levels, just in case you want a flattering glow while streaming. The Kiyo is compatible with Open Broadcaster Software and XSplit.

The Razer Seiren X meanwhile, is a USB microphone with a removable desk stand. It comes equipped with 25 mm condenser capsules for enhanced recording sensitivity and records sound at a "supercardioid pattern", leaving out the background noise. In addition, it has a built-in shock mount for when you rage quit.

The Razer Kiyo and the Razer Seiren X are both priced at $99.99. The specs themselves are as follows:
