"Frames Monitor" Utility from Tom Kerkhove

Today we highlight another Kinect for Windows v2 post from Kinect MVP, Tom Kerkhove.

Gen. II Kinect for Windows – Introducing ‘Frames Monitor’

In my previous post I introduced you to the MultiSourceFrameReader and how it syncs the frames between different data sources.

What is Frames Monitor?

I created a simple tool that visualizes the amount of frames/second that are received when using the MultiSourceFrameReader in a certain environment.

It enables you to run the test in a specific environment and take in account how much of the frames you are going to receive. This result will depend on the whether you selected the color data streams & what the amount of light is in the scene.

This tool is only supported with the Gen. II Kinect for Windows and is created with C# & WPF and uses the MVVM-pattern.

You can download this tool here.
