Acquisition Using Kinect for Windows Hardware

Acquire image and skeletal data from Kinect® for Windows®

The Kinect adaptor lets you acquire images using a Kinect for Windows V1 or V2 device. The Kinect V1 sensor runs on Windows 7 and above, and the Kinect V2 Sensor runs on Windows 8 and above.

The Kinect for Windows documentation (for both V1 and V2) is now part of the support package. When you install the Image Acquisition Toolbox™ Support Package for Kinect For Windows Sensor, you can access the documentation from the support package.

Note: The functionality for all supported hardware is now available via the Support Package Installer. Starting with R2014a, each adaptor is available separately through the Support Package Installer, and you must install the appropriate support packages to use the toolbox with your hardware. For more information, see Image Acquisition Support Packages for Hardware Adaptors.
