How to connect Kinect 2 with MATLAB image acquisition tool?

8 views (last 30 days)
Hi I have some question about image acqusition in MATLAB with Kinect v2.
I've tried almost every solutions in internet but nothing works well.
When I typed imaqhwinfo, matlab shows that InstalledAdaptors include 'kinect'.
Then I typed colorVid = videoinput('kinect',1) and depthVid = videoinput('kinect',2),
matlabs says "There are no devices installed for the specified ADAPORNAME. See IMAQHWINFO)".
How could I solve this problem??
I'm waiting for proper Answer Thank you!

The Mathworks add-on packages for Kinect such as here or there is for the original Kinect only.
However, someone has posted a Kinect 2 interface in the File Exchange at
