SAN FRANCISCO (TWITCHCON 2015) – Razer, a world leader in connected devices and software for gamers, today announced products and services aimed at gamers and streamers.

“Razer has supported game broadcasters from the very beginning of the live video gaming scene,” said Min-Liang Tan, Razer co-founder and CEO.

We’re excited about our range of broadcaster-focused products and services that give gamers the edge in their stream entertainment capabilities.”
Razer Sponsored Streamer Program:
The Razer Sponsored Streamer Program was started with the goal of helping budding and established streamers alike get to the next level in their aspirations. Assistance may take the form of simply provisioning broadcast talent with the best Razer gear, helping boost viewership, partaking in an affiliate program; or, it may at the highest level promise financial sponsorships and more involved partnership opportunities. Razer currently supports over 12 thousand streamers and is looking to bring-on the next Twitch rock star.
Project Sheena game capture card:
Razer's new game capture card, Project Sheena, is a yet-to-be-officially-named 1080p60 capable device, transmitting uncompressed data at blazing speeds over USB 3.0. With low latency, second audio mix-in, and compatibility with Open Broadcaster Software (OBS) and other similar software, Project Sheena is the advanced streamer’s hardware solution for getting total control over their livestream, delivering the best entertainment quality to their viewers.
The Project Sheena game capture card is on showcase at TwitchCon 2015 and will be available in early 2016.
