Recording Video from Depth Sensor Environment
For a single or dual depth sensor configuration, you need a minimum of 10 feet by 10 feet space (3 meters by 3 meters). At smaller space, actor simply won’t fit into view of cameras.
It is convenient to put MS Kinect Sensor on a chair or a table. The picture below will help you to understand possible capture area and required space. Dimensions are different for Kinect and Kinect 2 sensors due to different field of view.
Kinect 2 for Windows and Kinect for Xbox One
Kinect 2 sensors have wider angle of view compared to first generation Kinect. This makes possible to come closer to sensor thus decreasing overall space requirements.
