Corsair takes Elgato Gaming under its wing

Corsair announced today that it's acquired Elgato's gaming hardware division. Elgato is one of the best-known names in the industry for game capture and streaming hardware, and the acquisition seems like a natural fit for Corsair given the company's expanding ambitions in the gaming hardware market. The terms of the acquisition were not disclosed.

Elgato's smart home division, called Elgato Eve, will continue operating separately under the Eve Systems brand. We've asked Corsair whether Elgato hardware will continue to be sold under that name or whether it will be folded into the Corsair brand.

Before its acquisition, Elgato was known for its HD60, HD60 S, HD60 Pro, and 4K60 Pro internal and external capture cards, its Stream Deck camera-switching and effects trigger board, its Cam Link and green screen accessories, and a Thunderbolt 3 dock for compatible notebooks. Corsair makes almost everything a gamer needs to build and control a PC, and it'll even sell you complete systems if your inclination isn't toward DIY. We're interested to see where Elgato goes under Corsair's wing.

    Elgato?

    I’ll believe it when they have a full-line of cat-proof game streaming equipment.

      My problem is the year-old pitbull mix. She likes to chew. I’ve had to replace or just toss out a bunch of stuff in the last year. If you need help with clearing out your cable closet, she’ll oblige. 😀

      Your cat uses your game streaming equipment? That must be an interesting channel.

    Neat. A friend of mine got a 4K60 Pro and I gave him $50 for his older HD60. It’s now connected to my OSSC, where RGB in old consoles becomes reality.

    Been playing with it in OBS on my Mac and it seems like a pretty cool device. No idea why people would want to watch a stream of me playing old Sega games, though. I do daydream about making scripted, half-way intelligent videos, which I have some experience doing for my day job, but I have neither the motivation nor the creativity required to do it well. I have literally all the hardware you’d want, though, even a lapel mic and a 35mm f/1.8 lens (which does nicely in lower lighting) for my Nikon D3300.

    Their software support seems to be pretty good, and it’s easy to use. As long as Corsair doesn’t try to make Elgato into something that it currently isn’t, I see nothing but success in the future.

      Old SEGA games? I might join your stream 🙂
