Kinect Sensors Support

iPi Recorder supports Kinect 2 and Kinect sensors. Kinect 2 for Windows and Kinect for Xbox One is the same sensor. Kinect 2 has higher resolution compared to first generation Kinect sensor.

Important! Only single Kinect 2 sensor is supported due to limitation in Microsoft Kinect SDK 2. Using multiple Kinect 2 sensors will soon be possible with the help of distributed recording feature, which will allow to record the same session with several computers. In this case each Kinect 2 sensor can be connected to a separate computer.

Kinect Sensros Comparison

Device Pros Cons
Kinect 2 for Windows / Kinect for Xbox One
  • Higher resolution of depth and RGB video
  • Low mutual sensors interference
  • More tolerant to lighting conditions
  • Better tracking quality can be expected
    (but the difference with first generation Kinect is not dramatic)
  • Requires USB 3.0 controller
  • Only single sensor on one PC is supported by Microsoft Kinect SDK 2
  • Works only on Windows 8 / 8.1
Kinect for Windows
  • Ensures tracking quality comparable with Kinect 2, but hardware requirements are not so strong
  • Requires USB 2.0 controller
  • Works on Windows 8 / 7 / Vista SP2
  • Lower resolution
  • Less tolerant to lighting conditions
  • Higher mutual interference of sensors leads to more noise in case of using several sensors

Obsolete Sensors

iPi Recorder also supports obsolete sensors, currently unavailable for purchase: iPi Recorder officially supports ASUS Xtion and ASUS Xtion Live devices (and also PRO modifications for developers), and PrimeSense Carmine 1.08.
