Today we highlight another Kinect for Windows v2 post from Kinect MVP, Tom Kerkhove.
In my previous post I introduced you to the MultiSourceFrameReader and how it syncs the frames between different data sources.
I am bound to the Kinect for Windows Developer Program and can not share the new SDK/DLL.
“This is preliminary software and/or hardware and APIs are preliminary and subject to change”.
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.
This monitor has been run in an environment where there was a lot of light in the room and the result is a total of 30 FPS.
This monitor has been run in an environment where there was a not much light in the room and the result is a total of 15 FPS.
