From lens to sensors, the ZED camera is filled with cutting-edge technology that takes depth and motion tracking to a whole new level.
Perceive and understand your surroundings in 3D up to 20m distance, with increased accuracy in the close range.
Capture stunning 2K 3D video with best-in-class low-light sensitivity to operate in the most challenging environments.
ZED is the world's fastest depth camera. Capture 1080p HD video at 30FPS or WVGA at 100FPS and get a crisp and clear image.
The ZED is a passive stereo camera that reproduces the way human vision works. Using its two “eyes”, the ZED creates a three-dimensional map of the scene by comparing the displacement of pixels between the left and right images.
Up until now, 3D sensors have been limited up to perceiving depth at short range and indoors. The ZED stereo camera is the first sensor to introduce indoor and outdoor long range depth perception along with 3D motion tracking capabilities, enabling new applications in many industries: AR/VR, drones, robotics, retail, visual effects and more.
The ZED captures two synchronized left and right videos of a scene and outputs a full resolution side-by-side color video on USB 3.0. This color video is used by the ZED software on the host machine to create a depth map of the scene, track the camera position and build a 3D map of the area.
You can use the ZED with USB 3.0 extension cables or optical fiber cables to extend the range of your camera up to 100m. You can also use Jetson Nano to turn the ZED into an Ethernet camera.
You can connect multiple ZED cameras to a single PC. This feature is supported on both Windows and Linux. You can also stream remotely video from multiple cameras using ZED SDK.
Yes! Developers can download the ZED SDK on our Developer page. We also have a GitHub page that we update on a regular basis.
The ZED SDK and our GitHub page includes plugins and samples for Unity, OpenCV, ROS, AI frameworks and more.
The ZED SDK is compatible with Windows and Linux. It can run on any PC that meets the minimum hardware requirements, and on embedded platforms from NVIDIA: Jetson TX2, Nano and Xavier.
