Vicon DataStream SDK 1.8.0


File Name:

Vicon DataStream SDK 1.8.0 (Software Development Kit).

The Vicon DataStream Software Development Kit (SDK) allows easy programmable access to the information contained in the Vicon DataStream. The function calls within the SDK allow users to connect to and request data from the Vicon DataStream.

DataStream SDK 1.8.0 incorporates many changes, the most significant of these is a new “Retiming API”. This allows for client applications to request estimated data in non-blocking fashion. i.e. data is returned immediately rather than waiting for a fresh frame. This means that perceived latency is reduced - ideal for VR. Additionally, a small amount of additional prediction can be added to allow the estimate to be predicted into the future to account for rendering delays in game engines.

The source package has been updated and is now included within this distribution under an MIT license, allowing for unlimited use and redistribution of the SDK, whilst limiting liability.

New plugins for Unity 3d and Unreal Engine are now available that take advantage of this new API.

New documentation, using Doxygen is provided.
