Why the number of depth bits is only 12? RRS feed

  • Question

  • hello all, i am now working with Kinect recently. first i tried official SDK for depth extraction but i cannot obtain the depth value of the room corner which is about 4 meters from the machine. then i tried OpenNI Kinect hack and it can get the histogram of almost every pixel.

    i found the depth value returned by Kinect hack is more than 12 bits. but the official document says only 12 bits are for depth, why?
