Lounge Wizard - Introducing the K83 Wireless Entertainment Keyboard from CORSAIR

 

FREMONT, CA, March 7th, 2019 – CORSAIR®, a world leader in PC gaming peripherals and enthusiast components, today announced the launch of the new CORSAIR K83 Wireless Entertainment Keyboard, bringing unprecedented control and versatility to living room PCs and home entertainment setups. Merging refined style and aluminum construction with advanced navigation and flexible control over a range of multiple devices, including smart TVs and streaming media players, the K83 Wireless is the centerpiece of any modern living room entertainment center.

Alongside its stylish anodized aluminum frame and white LED backlit custom CORSAIR ultra-low profile keyswitches, the K83 boasts an intuitive key layout that puts all the entertainment essentials within easy reach, whether you’re searching for the next episode, controlling playback, or exploring the latest game. Its contoured keycaps help your fingers settle in comfortably with a host of media shortcuts and hotkeys.

 

But browsing large media libraries requires more than keys, and the K83 Wireless includes a wealth of ways to browse content or even play games casually from the couch. An analogue joystick makes easy work of menus and content browsing and plays games like a gamepad when combined with the familiar WASD keys. A precision multi-touch touchpad and dedicated right/left click buttons make mouse cursor movement and clicks easy, with separate left and right click buttons also found on the keyboard’s shoulders. Whether you’re navigating through menus on your TV, streaming media player, or living room PC running Windows 10, the K83 Wireless offers a huge array options to make browsing content easier, while also uniquely capable of driving a great casual gaming experience.

CORSAIR’s proprietary wireless technology connects to USB-compatible devices for easy setup and ultra-fast 1ms 2.4GHz wireless speed, using 128-bit AES wireless encryption to protect your personal data. The addition of low-latency Bluetooth® wireless offers further flexibility to quickly connect to even more devices without a USB port. A USB-rechargeable battery powers the K83 Wireless, providing up to 40 hours of continuous use.

Finally, the K83 Wireless takes advantage of CORSAIR iCUE software for powerful customization through a single intuitive interface. Users can recalibrate and fine-tune the joystick, create macros and remap keys, adjust the LED backlighting, and configure Windows touchpad gestures.

 

With the ability to control PC’s, compatible smart TV’s, streaming media players and more, the K83 Wireless Entertainment Keyboard lets you take command of your living room entertainment like never before.
