Elgato has updated its Stream Deck hardware controller to offer push dials and a touch strip for even more ways to enhance workflows for Mac users.
The hardware controller has eight LCD keys, four push dials, and a dynamic touch strip. The previous version had 15 LED buttons, but that was a great device as we found in our 2021 review.
Users can personalize the LCD keys and touch strip with Elgato's library of icon packs and backgrounds. The dials can be refitted with silver or gold caps that the company separately sells.
Elgato also offers thousands of royalty-free tracks and sound effects with the device. Stream Deck+ can benefit content creation workflows, which include podcasting and live production, to photo editing and graphic design.
Users can customize the product with the Stream Deck software to quickly drag and drop plugin actions onto the keys and dials. Each tap of an LCD key can trigger single or multiple actions for near-endless customization.
Dials adjust volume levels, image details, camera zoom, brightness, white balance, or other app settings. It can control audio, video, lighting, and other software-enabled technology with over 100 app plugins.
"Stream Deck has evolved into an indispensable platform for all types of digital professionals. Every month, Stream Deck users execute hundreds of millions of actions with their devices to make their workflows more powerful and intuitive, often in unexpected and ingenious ways," said Julian Fest, SVP and GM of Elgato.
