Elgato is one of the big brands when it comes to streaming. If you wish to offload some of the work your PC would typically have to get through when both gaming and recording a stream simultaneously, an internal capture card dedicated to the role of recording your gameplay can make a big difference. The same goes for the Elgato Stream Deck, which allows you to program commands and hotkeys to a grid of 15 buttons with LCD screens to quickly mute your microphone, play a sound effect, or switch between scenes.
The capture card is able to record gameplay up to 4K in resolution and at 60 frames-per-second. This combination is not only ideal for the streamer, but viewers using the connected online platform. The RRP on the Elgato 4K60 Pro is £359.95. It's currently priced at £287.99 and is a wonderful piece of technology. Of course, you will need to make sure your Pc can handle games at such high resolution to make this purchase justifiable.
For the Stream Deck, which is yours for only £94.95, this is a worthwhile consideration for the amateur to professional streamers who already have a following and wish to make their life a little easier in handling transitions, different scenes, and any additional audio or visual effects that may be used throughout a broadcast. The 15 keys can be programmed to do whatever you desire, be it open up an app, switch scenes, or even mute your microphone for a quick sneeze.
These prices will not last much longer, so be sure to take advantage before you run out of time.
