Access to Video Data With Kinect (SDK)

  • Step1:Sensor Acquisition and Startup;
  • Step2:specify which streams we need(add references to the frame readers.)

step1.Kinect for Windows supports one sensor, which is called the default sensor. The KinectSensor Class has static members to help configure the Kinect sensor and access sensor data.

step2.Use the sensor to access data from several sources including: color, depth, body, body index, and infrared. Functionally, each source is controlled by the following three things:

  • Source type
    Inspect or configure a source and open a source reader.

  • Source reader type
    Access to the source’s frames using eventing or polling.

  • Frame type
    Access the data from a particular frame from the source.
