Carbon Neutral Live Streaming
This year’s RazerCon live stream will be a completely carbon-neutral experience. Razer conducted a projection study to determine the carbon emissions from the audience attending the event. The study looked at the geographic location of the viewers, estimated device power usage, and data transmission over the internet to estimate the amount of carbon emissions the live stream would produce. Razer is committed to offsetting all carbon emissions with the industry’s gold standard Verified Carbon Standard (VCS), enabling the gamer community to connect to the Razer universe in a way that does not harm the world.
Razer held RazerCon for the first time in 2020 to pay tribute to the global gaming community at a time when physical events were not possible. The launch event attracted over one million active viewers and set a whole new standard for online events. This year, Razer continues its line of innovation and raises the bar with carbon-neutral flow.
Attendees will also witness an audio-visual feast to reflect the real RazerCon atmosphere. The event will be powered by reactive Razer Chroma RGB lighting (patent pending), a proprietary RGB lighting technology system containing 16.8 million colors to create endlessly animated lighting effects. Audiences are encouraged to turn on their Razer gear during the show and watch their Razer Chroma-enabled devices sync with the broadcast, especially during musical performances at the end.
