Multiple Kinect devices and the Kinect SDK? Yes, you can (and here's how)...

I've seen the question, "Can I or How can I use multiple Kinect Devices on the same computer?" a number of times but never answered in the depth or completeness that the below post(s) provide.

If you're thinking or wondering about using multiple Kinect's, this looks like the must read reference post...

Development With Kinect .NET SDK (Part V) – Developing Application using Multiple Kinect Devices

This is the fifth post in the series of Development With Kinect .NET SDK. In this post I am going to discuss about interacting with multiple Kinect devices with in a single system using Kinect .NET SDK. Before going forward, I will strongly recommend you to read my previous post where I have discussed about Connecting Multiple Kinect Devices with System which will help you setup your system with multiple devices.

Once both devices configured and setup properly, you can run the below code snippet to check if Kinect SDK detects both of the devices.

    @Arvind patel: I'd start with the early Kinect Gallery posts, as in those there are many more how-to's, etc. Also here's a future Gallery post that might help you, http://blogs.msdn.com/b/mvpawardprogram/archive/2011/10/31/getting-the-most-out-of-the-kinect-sdk-by.aspx

    My question is out from this topic. Based on my browsing through the internet regarding the kinect. There are some website showing the need of the calibration mechanism between color and depth sensor before using kinect. They said purpose is to map the depth pixel with the color pixel obtain from kinect accurately. The question is, do i have to do that calibration mechanism? It is because, i already try this kinect SDK, i assume that depth and color image obtained from this SDK is accurately map. Thanks

    @Amir: Calibration is not required if your using the Kinect for Windows SDK. I believe it might be required if you are using other Kinect drivers...

    gduncan411: Then, how do i know that a pixel in depth image is belong to which correspondence pixel in color image? Currently i save the color and depth image separately as avi video file. But when i display single frame, i seem that depth and color image has been shifted between each other
