Depth Camera D457

Skip to content

IP65 rated GMSL FAKRA.

Secure Performance.

The Intel® RealSense™ Depth Camera D457 is our first GMSL/FAKRA high bandwidth stereo camera. The D457 has an IP65 grade enclosure protecting it from dust ingress and projected water.

Gigabit Multimedia Serial Link (GMSL) is a multigigabit, point-to-point connection targeting the automotive space. GMSL supports multistream over a single cable, up to 15m with a coax cable. GMSL is a high performance protocol combined with a secure FAKRA connector making it best suited for robotic and warehouse applications.

Connector 2


The D457 depth camera adds a GMSL serializer and FAKRA connector to the Intel RealSense camera product line. GMSL/FAKRA is a lower power, lower ESD/EMI noise, lower latency and longer cable length compared to USB and higher bandwidth compared to Ethernet.

An IMU inside.

The camera integrates an IMU to allow your application to refine its depth awareness in any situation where the camera moves. This allows improved environmental awareness for robotics and drones.

Depth camera D455 comes with an IMU

Adding automotive-grade FAKRA connector , GMSL high speed serializer and IP65 grade enclosure makes it the best fit for autonomous mobile robots (AMR), automotive infotainment and driver monitoring.​

The D457 is supported with the same cross-platform open-source Intel® RealSense™ SDK 2.0, requiring a separate Kernel driver package for the GMSL serializer.​

The Kerner driver is open source and can easily be integrated into various platforms.

A couple of platforms that are available:

12th Gen Intel® Core™ i7 processor (Alder Lake-P) based platform provided by ROBOX500 ( with open-source SW demonstrating multi D457 camera operation and Object Detection tutorial

Connect Tech Anvil platform with Nvidia AGX Orin

Multi D457 cameras Synchronization over GMSL

When multiple D457 cameras connected to one system, often their streams need to be synchronized.

There are two methods to HW sync multiple D457 cameras:

  1. Through the GMSL link without using sync cable wiring
  2. Through the 9-pin AUX connector with 2-wire sync cable which is typically used on USB Intel RealSense cameras like D45x, D43x and D415.

Long range with GMSL/FAKRA interface

The D457 is comprised of the same D450 optical module used in the D455 camera with a new Vision Processor D4 Board V5. It has the same long range KPIs as the D455 with the benefits of the secure GMSL/FAKRA connector and IP65 grade.
