encode depth data?

Hi ,

I write a code to connect to multiple kinect with different ip address, but the depth data always has delay.is there any solution to overcome this?

and i tried to encode the depth image to jpg format which same as encode color images, either I get "Buffer size is not sufficient" or "Value does not fall in expected range".

Could someone please help me  how to properly do this?

Thanks.

The depth data is not compressed when transferred, and it's about 153k per frame at 30fps.  So, it's a lot of data to transfer if you don't have a speedy link.  You can't encode to JPEG directly as the data itself isn't valid color data.

All that said, compression for depth data is on my list of things to do but I don't have an ETA.
