Corsair, one of the industry’s leading high-performance gaming peripherals and components manufacturers, announced that the company has acquired the smartphone app EpocCam. Corsair has been making a strong push into the creator’s market over the last few years, also acquiring the company streaming-focused company Elgato.
According to Corsair, “EpocCam is one of the leading video apps in the Apple App Store with over 5 million downloads, allowing users to easily turn their iOS device, such as an iPhone or iPad, into a wireless high definition webcam for Windows and macOS. EpocCam works seamlessly with major video applications such as Zoom, Skype, OBS Studio, Google Meet, or Microsoft Teams to chat, stream, or record in HD resolution.”
EpocCam will fall into the Elgato subsidiary to further expand its content creator product portfolio, with EpocCam creator and lead developer Sami Grohn joining Elgato as Principal Software Engineer.
