Recommended Specifications for ZED SDK

The ZED camera is UVC (Universal Video Class) compliant so you can capture the left and right video streams of the ZED on any Windows and Linux platforms. However, getting access to advanced features of the ZED SDK requires proper hardware to offer sustained and optimal performance.

We recommend the following system specifications to use the ZED SDK:
