Astra & Astra S

Astra is a powerful and reliable standalone 3D camera includes our proprietary Orbbec 3D microchip and VGA color. It has the same superior depth resolution and fast performance as Astra Pro.

There is also a short-range version of this camera: Astra S. It shares the same appearance, size, and weight as the Astra; the difference is that Astra S is optimized for short-range uses, including 3D scanning, face recognition, short range interactive systems, and more.

Extreme Compatibility

Astra and Astra S were developed to be highly compatible with existing OpenNI applications, making both 3D cameras ideal for pre-existing apps that were built with OpenNI. Astra S has a 0.4- to 2-meter range, while Astra has a 0.6- to 8-meter range. (See full technical specs for both below.)

Astra 3D cameras are excellent for a wide range of scenarios, including gesture control, robotics, 3D scanning, and point cloud development.

Astra and Astra S are already in market. Innovative businesses worldwide have adopted Astra and Astra S for use with their existing OpenNI solutions.
