Durango’s Kinect 2 Technical Specs Leaked

The guys at VGLeaks have managed to get their hands on Xbox 720 / Durango’s Kinect 2 hardware specs.

The most important improvements over the current Kinect include wider Field Of View (FOV), higher resolution depth and color cameras with more color depth, an Infrared (IR) camera, lower latency and USB 3 interface.

A side-by-side comparison of Kinect and Kinect 2 is as follows:

Feature Xbox 360 Kinect Sensor Durango Sensor
Field of View (FOV) 57.5˚ horizontal by 43.5˚ vertical 70˚ horizontal by 60˚ vertical
Resolvable Depth 0.8 m -> 4.0 m 0.8 m -> 4.0 m
Color Stream 640 x 480 x 24 bpp 4:3 RGB @ 30fps640 x 480 x 16 bpp 4:3 YUV @ 15fps 1920 x 1080 x 16 bpp 16:9 YUY2 @ 30 fps
Depth Stream 320 x 240 16 bpp, 13-bit depth 512 x 424 x 16 bpp, 13-bit depth
Infrared (IR) Stream No IR stream 512 x 424, 11-bit dynamic range
Registration Color <-> depth Color <-> depth and active IR
Audio Capture 4-mic array returning 48 Hz audio 4-mic array returning 48K Hz audio
Data Path USB 2.0 USB 3.0
Latency ~90 ms with processing ~60 ms with processing
Tilt Motor Vertical only No tilt motor

All Xbox 720 SKUs will include Kinect 2 units, so developers are free to take advantage of it without alienating some players.

I'm somewhat disappointed by

I'm somewhat disappointed by the depth camera resolution, while they upgraded the color camera to full HD (albeit at the expense of color fidelity) the depth camera's resolution wasn't even doubled. There are no guarantees that the kinect 2 will be capable of tracking fingers (as it was promissed) unless you're standing very close to it.
