The Swiss company Logitech has announced the acquisition of controller manufacturer Loupedeck. The parties do not disclose the terms of the deal.
The acquisition of Loupedeck will complement Logitech’s product portfolio and accelerate its software ambitions to make keyboards, mice and more smarter, said Logitech G CEO Ujesh Desai.
In 2019, the functional editing console Loupedeck CT went on sale. The manufacturer then switched to video streaming with Loupedeck Live and Lopedeck Live S. The devices offer an alternative to Elgato’s Stream Deck, which content creators use to add titles, images and more to live broadcasts.
Loupedeck also collaborated with Razer during the development of the Stream Controller.
Logitech notes that the acquisition of Loupedeck will provide a “premium experience” to content creators, including gamers, streamers and others. Logitech promises compatibility between Streamlabs apps and Loupedeck devices. The acquired company noted that the merger will help it expand its audience “exponentially”.
Logitech acquired Streamlabs in 2019 to expand its reach in the game streaming market. The company acquired gaming peripherals maker Saitek in 2016, headset maker Astro in 2017, and audio equipment company Blue Microphones in 2018.
