About Azure Kinect Sensor SDK

This article provides an overview of the Azure Kinect Sensor software development kit (SDK), its features, and tools.


The Azure Kinect Sensor SDK provides cross-platform low-level access for Azure Kinect device configuration and hardware sensors streams, including:

  • Depth camera access and mode control (a passive IR mode, plus wide and narrow field-of-view depth modes)
  • RGB camera access and control (for example, exposure and white balance)
  • Motion sensor (gyroscope and accelerometer) access
  • Synchronized Depth-RGB camera streaming with configurable delay between cameras
  • External device synchronization control with configurable delay offset between devices
  • Camera frame meta-data access for image resolution, timestamp, etc.
  • Device calibration data access
