Logitech has acquired stream controller maker Loupedeck for an undisclosed amount. The latter company promises that existing products will continue to be supported for the foreseeable future.
The takeover is according to Logitech aimed at supporting its ‘software ambitions’ to make keyboards, mice and other hardware smarter. The two companies say they focus on streamers, creators and gamers. It is not clear whether Logitech plans to make streaming decks with Loupedeck’s knowledge. So far, the hardware company hasn’t released any stream controllers, but it has released microphones, cameras and software.
Loupedeck started in 2017 as a company that released an editing panel for Lightroom via Kickstarter. In 2019, the transition to the gaming and streaming market was made with the Loupedeck Live and Loupedeck Live S. The company also makes stream controllers, panels with digital and physical buttons that allow you to quickly change settings or play media while streaming or gaming. Loupedeck previously did this in collaboration with Razer.
