What's New


The ZED SDK 1.1.0 release includes new recording mode and grayscale image output, along with minor improvements and bug fixes.


New Features

New recording pipeline
  • SVO or AVI recording can now be started whith enableRecording() and stopped with stopRecording() without deleting the ZED camera object.
  • You can also record videos whith depth and tracking enabled.
  • Use the record() function after a grab() call to save incoming images in your video file.
New grayscale and raw image output
  • Grayscale images and raw (unrectified) images can now be retrieved using retrieveImage* functions.


New positional tracking matrix output
  • Besides the 4x4 Eigen matrix that contains the position and orientation of the camera, a new structure "MotionPoseData" that contains the rotation, translation and orientation (quaternion) of the camera can be retrieved. This quaternion can be used more easily in OpenGL and Unity applications.
New XYZ+Color output
  • Added XYZBGRA, XYZARGB, XYZABGR support in retrieveMeasure*() function. This improves performance with ROS and other third-party libraries.
