Logitech has launched a new lighting device made for streamers called Litra Glow, and it says the product can provide a “natural, radiant look across all skin tones.” Litra Glow delivers a glare-free light that’s supposed to be gentle on the eyes and is safe for all-day streaming.It also features Logitech TrueSoft technology, which promises cinematic color accuracy and enables a soft, flattering light that can make streamers look less. It can genuinely provide a “radiant” look across all skin tones remains to be seen.
Different skin tones require different approaches to lighting on video — using the same lighting for white actors, for instance, had made Black actors look ashy or barely visible during dimly lit scenes in movies and shows for a long time. Logitech got to talk about Litra Glow, is a Black visual artist and photographer Aundre Larrow, who once shared tips on how to photograph darker skin tones in an article he wrote for AdobeRing lights and streamer lights have become a lot more popular thanks to the rise of game streaming services like Twitch, but also to provide lighting for creators on YouTube and TikTok.
The Litra Glow will come with a monitor mount that has an adjustable height, tilt, and rotation when it starts shipping sometime this month. It will be available in the United States, Canada, Australia, and select European countries on Logitech website and from Amazon, Adorama, and other retailers for $60.
