Electronics and computing accessories firm Logitech has announced a new illuminated keyboard designed to work with connected TVs.
The Living-Room Keyboard K830 features a rechargeable battery, backlit keys, an integrated touchpad, and advanced wireless connectivity.
To help save power the keyboard automatically dims or brightens its backlit keys based on the amount of light in the room and turns the backlight off five seconds after the last key press.
Logitech describe the device as “compact and lightweight” and says the soft-feel keys have been optimised for media and entertainment control.
“More and more consumers want an easy way to access movies, TV programs, music and photos with their PC connected to a TV,” said Charlotte Johs, global vice president of brand development for PC accessories at Logitech.
“Our new Illuminated Living-Room Keyboard K830 is designed with this setup in mind. Backlit keys and a premium aesthetic that blends into the living room make it a stand-out choice for people with connected TVs.”
The Logitech Illuminated Living-Room Keyboard K830 will be available in Europe in April 2014 for a suggested retail price of £89.99.
