OMEN Game Stream: OMEN Power Now Streaming
HP continues to add new functionality to its OMEN Command Center software. The latest build, which comes preinstalled on the new OMEN 15 Laptop, introduces the ability to harness your OMEN PC's power to stream gameplay content to other Windows 10 devices.
OMEN by HP Mindframe Headset
The new OMEN Mindframe headset comes with active earcup cooling technology. This headset, coming later this year, is packed with cutting edge audio and designed for comfort.
Controlled with OMEN Command Center software, this patented active cooling solution is designed with a thermoelectric device inside the earcup that conducts heat from the acoustic chamber towards the outside, so gamers can keep cool and focused in tense situations.
The headset offers realistic positional audio and 3D spatial awareness with DTS Headphone:X and 7.1 virtual surround sound. It also comes with a noise-cancelling unidirectional microphone that instantly mutes when flipping it up, unmutes when folded back down, and adjusts with a volume knob on an earcup.
When not gaming on a PC, you can take advantage of the USB 2.0 Type-A connector to jam with other USB-enabled mobile devices.
The OMEN by Mindframe Headset is expected to be available in second-half 2018.
OMEN by HP Sequencer Keyboard
The OMEN Sequencer keyboard comes with optical-mechanical switches, it is built with a durable brushed top, anodized aluminum frame, and USB port at the back-left corner.
HP's optical-mechanical Blue switch technology provides a 0.2ms response time. A red metal volume roller bar and dedicated media keys allow for audio changes at a moment's notice. And individually backlit RBG LED keys are capable of 16.8 million color options, all with effects and customizable within OMEN Command Center.
The Keyboard is expected to be available in July for a starting price of $179.99.
OMEN by HP Reactor Mouse
The OMEN Reactor gets an aluminum metal USB cable that helps reduce kinking and commands attention. It also uses HP's optical-mechanical switch technology with light beam detection enabling a 0.2ms click response time on left and right buttons.
The mouse is outfitted with an esports-grade 16,000 DPI optical sensor and incorporates rubber grips on both sides combined with an adjustable palm rest height balanced on a metal coil to generate a variety of palm rest positions.
