Yesterday due to technical problems I could not perform the webcast on Kinect SDK V2, but that doesn’t mean stop writing about this. In todays post I’ll show the way to find the enabled capabilities of a Kinect V2 sensor.
KinectSDK publish a “KinectCapabilities” property to handle that information. For example the following code is responsible for inspecting this property once detected a sensor and opens when a feed of the same.
This console running app shows the following:
As we can see, the option only changed from None to Vision (and believe me that I have tried with all the Sources). The official documentation promises us many capabilities which we hope will be available in the next update of the SDK
|None||0||No kinect capabilites are supported.|
|Vision||1||Vision is supported.|
|Audio||2||Audio is supported.|
|Face||4||Facial recognition is supported.|
|Expressions||8||Expressions are supported.|
|Gamechat||16||Game chat is supported.|
And as always, the disclaimer
“This is preliminary software and/or hardware and APIs are preliminary and subject to change”
