Based on Intel’s RealSense technology, the kit features the SR300 webcam, which integrates an audio subsystem together with the SR300 Intel RealSense front-facing camera.
The camera has a short-range coded-light imaging system and supports 1080p full-HD video image quality at up to 30 frames per second (FPS), or 720p HD video image quality at up to 60 FPS.
For audio recognition and voice control there is a dual microphone array that provides audio input to the client system.
The most likely applications include dynamic background segmentation, in which user backgrounds are masked out and replaced with alternative backgrounds for video conferencing, for example.
The camera, which is small enough to clip onto a mobile device, will capture images at a range of 70cm at 50 FPS.
The SR300 kit also supports legacy applications and RGB data based on the Intel RealSense F200 camera.
