Carbon Neutral Live Streaming
This year’s RazerCon Livestream will be a completely carbon-neutral experience. Razer has conducted a projection study to determine the carbon emissions that would arise from viewers tuning into the event. The study looked at the geographical location of viewers, estimated device power usage, and data transmission via the internet to predict the amount of carbon emissions the Livestream would generate. Razer is committing to offset all carbon emissions with the industry’s gold standard – Verified Carbon Standard (VCS) carbon credits to ensure that its community of gamers can immerse themselves in the Razer universe, guilt-free.
RazerCon: Delivering Best in Class Events
Razer launched RazerCon in 2020 with the intention to pay tribute to the global gaming community at a time when physical events were not possible. The inaugural event engaged over one million active viewers and set an entirely new standard for online events. This year, Razer is continuing its innovation streak and is upping the ante with carbon-neutral streaming.
Attendees will also be in for an audio-visual treat as in true RazerCon form, the event will be powered by reactive Razer Chroma RGB lighting (patent pending), a proprietary RGB lighting technology system that features 16.8 million colors to create endless animated lighting effects. Viewers are encouraged to turn on their Razer hardware during the show and watch their Razer Chroma-enabled devices synchronize with the stream, especially during the musical performances at the end.
