Capture broadcast-quality sound with Blue Sona’s active dynamic XLR microphone
Blue Sona reinvents the traditional broadcast mic for today’s streamers and creators. Taking Blue Microphones’ legendary audio quality to the next level, Blue Sona combines cutting-edge technology and a purpose-built design for professional-level game streaming, podcasting and video content.
“Blue Sona was built specifically for creators,” said Soren Pedersen, senior product manager for Logitech For Creators. “From its built-in preamp to its sleek camera-ready design, Blue Sona is unlike any other XLR mic on the market.
Blue Sona incorporates ClearAmp technology, a key innovation that streamlines the XLR experience by delivering strong +25dB gain boost – no external mic amplifier required. Other advanced features include a dual-diaphragm capsule and supercardioid polar pattern, which focus on the voice while taming the environment by rejecting unwanted vibrations, key clicks and background noise. This pro-level performance boasts a design built for creators with a 290-degree swivel stand.1 for complete freedom of mic placement in any desk setup.
An XLR connection easily integrates with audio interfaces and external mixers to fine-tune the sound. Sleek and versatile, Blue Sona is available in Graphite and Off-White color options and features interchangeable Red and Graphite windshields for camera-ready performance.
Form and direct light with Litra Beam, premium streaming desktop key.
Litra Beam allows creators to use light to control the appearance of their content in new ways. An innovative beam design with a three-way adjustable desk stand with height, tilt, and rotation provides endless positioning flexibility to shape and direct light. Control content and easily create mood and tone by placing and adjusting one or more Litra Beams in your setup to achieve a range of professional lighting techniques including Front, Split, Butterfly and Rembrandt.
“Digital content is increasingly looking like cinematography,” said Arnaud Perret-Gentil, Senior Global Product Manager for Logitech For Creators. “We designed Litra Beam to do more than just provide balanced LED light, but to allow streamers and desktop creators to shape and direct that light to control the mood and expression of their content.
Before or during the stream, streamers and creators can fine-tune their lighting with Litra Beam. Buttons on the rear of the unit allow quick access to five brightness settings and five color temperature settings (warm candlelight to cool blue), as well as continuous, stepless adjustment across the range, from 2700K to 6500K. For even more control and convenience, Logitech also offers the HUB Logitech G desktop application, which allows greater flexibility in adjusting brightness in percentage and color temperature in Kelvin, controlling one or more Litra Beams, as well as managing lighting presets. G HUB gives creators complete control over their Logitech streaming gear, including Litra Glow, Blue Yeti and StreamCam mics, and Logitech G gaming gear in a single desktop app.
Litra Beam solves common challenges for today’s streamers and creators looking to improve their content. Exclusive TrueSoft technology delivers balanced, full-spectrum LED light with cinematic color accuracy for a natural, radiant look on all skin tones. Its frameless diffuser casts a wide light to eliminate harsh shadows and is certified safe for all-day streaming, passing even the strictest UL testing guidelines.2. Plus, its slim, modern design with USB and AC outlet compatibility3 goes where other lights can’t, making it easier than ever to achieve professional lighting effects in unique spaces and configurations.
