and the detail of the toy house 1 meter away.
Highest Resolution – With smoother gradients, precise contours, and the ability to filter out low-quality depth pixels in a way other cameras cannot, Orbbec 3D cameras are exceptional for 3D scanning and point cloud development. Astra Pro also includes a 720p HD color camera and the ability to stream all of this data via USB 2.0.
How our 3D camera works
Astra Pro computes depth data by using structured light technology, which recovers the 3D positions of points on an object by projecting a pattern with known features on it then performing 3D reconstruction on image correlation and triangulation bias.
The powerful Orbbec 3D chip that comes with the Astra Pro makes it capable of computing depth maps at SXGA resolution (1280 x 1024), which is three times higher than other products on the market. Combining the patented 3D reconstruction algorithm, Astra Pro can easily output high-accuracy VGA (640 x 480) raw depth stream without heavy post processing such as interpolation.
With an embedded UVC RGB sensor, Astra Pro maximizes the bandwidth usage of USB 2.0 to allow users to stream HD RGB and VGA depth at 30 FPS simultaneously. This impressive design not only achieves low power consumption and heat radiation but also allows people to use Astra Pro even on low spec processing units.
