Kinect depth stream encoding RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I want to know what encoding does the Windows SDK use for depth stream? If they use the standard encoders like JPEG/H.264 ( whose basic inout is a 3 - 8 bit RGB data) for depth stream (Just a plain 16 bit monochromatic data) without sacrificing the quality?

    If Windows SDK is using non-standard and proprietary encoding techniques, will the synchronization with RGB stream not be an issue? ( Or how did they overcome the synchronization issue when RGB and Depth are encoded with different techniques?)

    Kindly point out any useful documentation that provide information on depth stream encoding.

    Thanks in advance
