Zivid SDK

High level, modern and intuitive API for highly efficient point cloud computation. Only a few lines necessary to get very accurate point clouds right into your code.

  • C++11 and .NET
  • GPU accelerated
  • Shared library (dll / so)

Learn more about the SDK →

Zivid::Application zivid;
auto camera = zivid.connectCamera( );
camera.capture( ).save("helloFrame.zdf");

Point Cloud

For every capture the Zivid 3D camera delivers a set of data points in space. Every pixel in the sensor chip is represented in an ordered array [1920 x 1200]. 

  • 3D XYZ (coordinates in space)
  • Color RGB
  • Contrast C
