RazerCon: Elevating Digital Events to the next level
The inaugural RazerCon took place in 2020 with the aim of creating a new and innovative way to connect with the community in the absence of physical events. Growing from strength to strength, RazerCon has transformed the way brands interact with gamers and set a new precedent for online events, including carbon-neutral live streaming.
Last year’s RazerCon was the first gamers’ carbon-neutral streaming event ever. 1.5 million viewers tuned into the live stream, which garnered over 375 thousand hours of watch-time, and 250 million social media impressions. This year’s RazerCon will also be carbon neutral as the brand will be tapping on AWS to use green energy to power the event. This is in line with Razer’s decarbonization efforts to become a net zero company by 2030.
Another trademark of RazerCon is the reactive Razer Chroma RGB lighting (patent pending) that powers the event. Razer Chroma RGB is Razer’s proprietary RGB lighting technology system with 16.8 million colors designed to create continuous dynamic lighting effects. Viewers who turn on their Razer hardware during the live stream will witness their Chroma-enabled devices synchronize with the event, especially during the musical performances and entertainment segments.
