The launch of Microsoft Kinect 2.0 for PC and Hololens further opened the way to mixed reality for arts venues.
However, there are still several pieces missing from this puzzle.
We at Stage-Eyes therefore have the honor to propose another component:
For use in productions a Kinect, in spite of its outstanding specifications, remains very fragile and remains hard to connect and install
This camera was originally designed for the gaming consumer market and for home use.
The Kinect for PC opens up a whole range of new applications that can be functional outside the home.
To be useful in the field or on the road, we at Stage Eyes combined the Microsoft Kinect 2 with the Intel NUC series … under the name Ki-NUC series.
They are called series since both the 5th and the 6th generation, i5 or i7 processor, are among the feasible choices.
This integration offers several advantages. All cables and adapters remain connected between the Kinect and NUC and are compactly secured in the robust aluminium housing.
The power connector has been replaced by the Neutrick powerCON, which is the globally used standard. A reliable fuse switch ensures long-term safe use.
By integrating camera and computer into a single housing, installation time can be reduced to a strict minimum. The housing is designed to be applicable on the floor, desk, wall, on a bar or truss. In the bracket, 3 holes are provided, which make it possible to secure 1 or 2 clamps.
In the Ki-Nuc case, there is still room for other integration features such as DMX or Midi DisplayPort hub etc. Stage-Eyes will now offer hard and soft turnkey solutions, ready for use upon delivery.
Various applications are available for Windows 8, 8.1 and 10 as well as for Linux Ubuntu ROS, …
Ki-Nuc can be used as stand-alone or can be combined as server(s) in a network
The applications are numerous:
There are many innovating possibilities in the fields of motion, gesture, expression and voice control, for conferencing, DMX control, interactive displays, robotics, mocap studio, surveillance systems, education, healthcare, gaming, …
Great news for today Kinect users, the aluminium housing can also be purchased separately in a one time operation soon on IndieGogo Do-It-Yourself package. Stay informed …. subscribe our mailinglist
