Elgato Game Capture HD60 S Review As far as I know, Elgato released the HD60S in 2016.

It has since then earned a lot of recognition among gamers for providing high definition gameplay footage with near-zero latency that can be streamed to Twitch or other streaming services.

Simply put, this device performs much better than any of their previous iterations, which is why this laptop will definitely be able to handle all of your video recording needs.The HD60 is powered by an Intel Core i7-6500U processor, which has two cores clocked at 2.5 GHz with a turbo frequency of 3.1 GHz, and it can even reach up to 3.3 GHz in power saving mode if needed.

The laptop comes with 8 GB of DDR4 RAM that is expandable to 16 GB if needed in the future, but unless you're planning on running multiple programs simultaneously while capturing gameplay footage, this should be more than sufficient for your needs.As far as storage goes, Elgato went for a 500 GB hard drive spinning at 7200 RPM, which offers plenty of space for recording gameplay videos without taking up too much space.

It might not be as fast as an SSD, but it's definitely much better than having to use an external hard drive for storing your video game footage.The only downside I could find with this laptop is the fact that its Wi-Fi adapter has a maximum theoretical bandwidth of 72 Mbps via 802.11n 2x2 MIMO.

It might not be as fast as an SSD, but it's definitely much better than having to use an external hard drive for storing your video game footage.

The Elgato Eve product line already has a number of smart home sensors designed to work with Apple's HomeKit smart home platform.

As of Wednesday, Elgato Systems will focus exclusively on its HomeKit-centric smart home line and will rebrand as Eve Systems.

Before developing smart home products, Elgato first became known for video game accessories.

That branch of the company, and the Elgato name, have been sold to Corsair -- another manufacturer of gaming peripherals.

You might already have a couple of products in the Elgato Eve product line.

Eve Room measures temperature and humidity.

A lot of companies will tell you that smart homes are the future, and it seems Elgato believes the same thing.

Today, Elgato announced that it will rebrand to Eve Systems, which shares the name of the company’s smart home product line up.

It seems that Eve, which was introduced back in 2014, has been a successful endeavor for Elgato, because it will now shift its focus entirely to IoT and smart home devices.

So, with that announcement in the books, what happens to Elgato’s gaming business?

At least a few of us probably recognize Elgato as the maker of devices like capture cards and last year’s Stream Deck, and the company seems to have found success with its gaming initiatives as well.

Elgato’s gaming arm isn’t going away entirely, but it is changing hands.

With a lock, a smoke detector and a window guard, Elgato wants to help Siri keep your home safe and sound.

Elgato is showing off five new HomeKit products in total at IFA 2017 -- Berlin's big tech show that officially kicks off Wednesday.

In addition to the the lock, the smoke detector and the window guard, Elgato is debuting an updated Eve Thermo to control the temp of old-fashioned radiators and the Eve Aqua, which will let Siri water your lawn.

Elgato is a consumer technology company based in Germany, and it's not new to the smart home space.

The Elgato Eve Room, Eve Energy and Eve Degree all work with Apple's smart home platform -- known as HomeKit -- as well.

The five new additions to the Elgato Eve lineup will take advantage of Apple's digital assistant Siri, so you can give a voice command to your iPhone to control your lock.

Today Elgato showed the Eve Light Switch for the first time, connecting to Apple devices with HomeKit.

Using Apple s HomeKit, Elgato puts Siri in control of the lights a user has at home.

Unlike other similar systems, this switch puts the control at the switch instead of the plug.

In this way, the user is able to control all lights in their home, not just the lamps.

There s also Elgato Eve Energy for lamp-lovers.

This switch turns any single or multi-bulb setup into an iPhone-controlled system.

Elgato Gaming is launching an updated version of its high-end capture card.

Like the previous model, the 4K60 Pro MK.2 records at 2160p and 60 frames per second.

But unlike its predecessor, this version also supports HDR and at a significantly lower price.

That is down from the $400 price that Elgato sold the original 4K60 Pro for.

It also undercuts the $300 price point for AverMedia’s competing Live Gamer 4K.

That aggressive pricing along with the updated feature set could put Elgato back on top for a lot of content creators.

Elgato already sells one of the top affordable cards for capturing gameplay video, and now it is filling out its product lineup with more tools for Twitch broadcasters and YouTube creators.

The $149 Green Screen is a collapsible, easy-to-store background that enables gamers to put just themselves over a game without having their office or bedroom behind them.

Elgato already has a strong reputation for its Elgato HD60 capture cards, which easily handle recording gameplay at 1080p and 60 frames per second.

Now, the company is looking to maximize its revenues by giving its customers more products to improve the production of their broadcasts.

“A high-quality camera is a critical upgrade to any creator’s setup, but often comes at the cost of a complicated and cumbersome video workflow,” Elgato Gaming general manager Julian Fest said in a statement.

“The arrival of Cam Link and Green Screen will kick off a new era of higher-quality visuals on YouTube, Twitch, and other platforms.

Elgato just revealed their newest in a line of docks made for Thunderbolt-loving computer enthusiasts.

This dock is called Elgato Thunderbolt 3 Mini Dock, and it’s very tiny, and very full of ports.

Much like past Elgato products, this one’s clearly made to look good right next to your Apple computer – color matching!

This cable is capable of being stowed “neatly in its base for transport.” This dock, like previous Thunderbolt docks from Elgato, makes the case for the move from all-docks-on-laptop to all-docks-on-dongle.

Those looking for the simple specs of this situation, behold the whole lot right below this sentence!

• Mac: macOS Sierra 10.12 or later, Thunderbolt 3 port

Elgato has a whole new line of HomeKit products at IFA this week.

The company teamed up with "leading suppliers" for specific home automation purposes, including a self-locking door lock, Eve Lock; a smoke detector called Eve Smoke; and a tamper-detecting window sensor called Eve Window Guard.

Elgato also has a new version of Thermo, its HomeKit radiator valve, which adds touch controls and an integrated temperature display.

But my favorite new product is the Eve Aqua, which turns your hose on and off and tracks your watering activity.

Elgato actually announced Aqua back in January, but it looks like it relies on a new "irrigation control" HomeKit feature in iOS 11 so that's why it’s being reintroduced.

For some reason turning a hose on and off really brings me back to my childhood.

This LED bulb is great for mood lighting, but it s not so good at lighting a room.

If the Elgato Avea is controlled by a conventional dimmer, there will be a slight delay before it turns on, and it won't dim at all but if you set the dimmer low enough, it will flash off and on .

Elgato s control app is an utter no-brainer: just install and quickly pair your bulbs, and then you re off.

While many smart lighting apps overwhelm with features, Elgato s is stripped down completely.

The main screen is straightforward to a fault, offering 12 different modes to choose from, most of which slowly change in color in tune with the app s preset schedule.

These range from Cozy Flames flickering red lights to Caribbean Sea shimmering shades of blue .

Elgato Gaming has updated one of the most interesting and useful new tools in the world of livestreaming.

Its Stream Deck USB command center, which enables broadcasters to control Twitch and other live content using 15 LCD buttons, now supports the XSplit Broadcaster software.

SplitmediaLabs’ XSplit is a popular piece of video-production software that can composite videos and feed them into livestreaming sites.

This matters because it makes it easier for one person to run a professional-looking broadcast, and that could begin to shift what people expect when they go to a site like Twitch for videos.

“Iterating based on community feedback is a big part of our process at Elgato, and XSplit integration has been one of the most popular requests for Stream Deck,” Elgato Gaming general manager Julian Fest said.

“This software update brings the effortless Stream Deck experience to XSplit, making switching scenes, launching media, and interacting with the audience easier than ever.”

The all-new Ring Light by Elgato not only promises consistent LED lighting, but it now is much easier to be controlled as it is WiFi-enabled.You will be able to control its access from the settings which you will find on the Elgato app.

With the help of the app’s settings, you will be able to adjust the brightness of the LEDs that are edge-lit.

You will be able to do that, from their 2,500-lumen maximum down, with 1-percent increments.You can also adjust the color temperature manually from 2,900 to 7,000k in case you do not have access to the Elgato app.

The light ring controls itself and you can make adjustments regarding the color temperature and brightness.

On top of the LEDs, there are two diffusion layers to provide you with uniform lighting and to avoid shadows.You can control the Ring Light over WiFi more effectively if you are already in the Elgato accessory ecosystem.

You can do that by using the Stream Deck control panel of the company which allows you to save different configurations to the LCD keys present on the controller to let you switch the settings without even a need to open the app.
