It outputs a high resolution side-by-side stereoscopic video on USB 3.0 that contains two synchronized left and right video streams. Using the ZED SDK, the graphics processing unit (GPU) from a host machine computes the depth map from the side-by-side video in real-time.

  • Output resolution : 4416x1242 pixels at 15 fps, 3840x1080 at 30 fps, 2560x720 at 60 fps, or 1280x480 at 120 fps.
  • Depth resolution : same as video resolution
  • Depth range : 1.5 to 20 meters (3.5 to 68 ft)
  • Camera Baseline : 120 mm
