Stereo depth technology

Make perception your advantage

Stereo image sensing technologies use two cameras to calculate depth and enable devices to see, understand, interact with, and learn from their environment — powering intuitive, natural interaction and immersion.

Stereo Depth

Stereo depth works both indoors and outdoors in a wide variety of lighting conditions and can also be used in multiple camera configurations without the need for custom calibration. The onboard Intel® RealSense™ Vision Processor D4 performs all the depth calculations on the camera, allowing for low power, platform agnostic devices.

Through the Lens

Intel® RealSense™ Stereo depth technology brings 3D to devices and machines that only see 2D today. Compare what the human eye sees to what Intel® RealSense™ depth technology sees.

Stereo depth solutions

Designed for easy setup and portability, Intel® RealSense™ D400 series cameras feature high depth resolution and include active infrared (IR) stereo with standard or wide field of view. For high-precision applications, choose the D415 with rolling shutter. If your application is fast‑moving or outdoors, select either the D435 or D435i camera which feature a global shutter. For longer range applications, the D455 features wide field of view and global shutter on the depth and RGB sensors.
