Elgato + Companion = Awesomenewss!

What does it do?

Bitfocus Companion enables the reasonably priced Elgato Streamdeck to be a professional shotbox surface for an increasing amount of different presentation switchers, video playback software and broadcast equipment.

Download lastest release

Daredevils download bleeding edge builds from builds.bitfocus.io directly, but please avoid using those versions in a production environment!

Key features

  • Button designer - Either with colored text or upload your own images
  • Stacked actions - Run multiple actions from the same button
  • Delayed actions - Set delay time individually for each action
  • Multi device - Have multiple streamdecks connected at once
  • Web admin - Configure the system from any browser in the network

Open source

Join the party! The Companion is open source, and will always need more thinkers, testers, developers and designers.

The choice is yours!
