Harness the Capabilities of Your Depth Camera

The Intel® RealSense™ Software Development Kit (SDK) includes the following:

Intel® RealSense™ Viewer

With this application, you can quickly access your Intel® RealSense™ Depth Camera D435 or D415 to:

  • View the depth stream
  • Record and play back streams
  • Configure your camera settings
  • Visualize point clouds
  • Adjust temporal and spatial filtering

Code Samples to Start Prototyping Quickly

  • Access multiple streams: depth data from the left and right imagers, depth and RGB stream
  • Capture at a dynamic range or fixed range
  • Display and access a 3D point cloud
  • Present multiple cameras depth streams in separate windows
  • Capture 30 frames and write the last frame to disk
  • Depth alignment tool: two levels of depth allow you to replace the background at level d1 or d2


Intel® RealSense™ Depth Cameras also support several wrappers and plug-ins including C, C++, Python*, Unity*, and Matlab*.
