Thanks for getting back to me James.
In response to your points:
Glad to hear you are interested in upgrading to the Femto Bolts! For those of you following along, these are the sensors we just announced support for following the discontinuation of the Azure Kinect
Yes! You will need the forthcoming 0.8.0 version of Depthkit to support Femto Bolt. It is currently finalizing testing for official release soon, and we can send you the prelease build anytime you’d like once you have the hardware.
I AM NOT SURE OF DELIVERY ETA TO UK FROM USA BUT THEY EERE ORDERED FROM MAIN SUPPLIER AND WERE IN STOCK. WE WILL HOPEFULLY INSTALL SOON AFTER YOUR DEMO ON 10TH JAN. AND RESOLVE ANY ISSUES IN OUR CALL WITH CORY BOOKED FOR 24TH JAN
We are seeing a very modest reduction of CPU load with Bolt as compared to Azure Kinect. The big improvement of 10x1440p@30hz has come through Ada generation NVIDIA card, 14th gen Intel i9, along with the Bolts.
OUR FIXED STUDIO SYSTEM WITH RTX A5000 WILL BE TESTED WITH 10 FEMBOT BOLTS THEN RE-INSTATED TO USING AZURE KINECT (I NOW HAVE 18). A DECISION WILL THEN BE MADE TO SWITCH BACK LATER.
7 FEMTO BOLTS WILL BE PERMANENTLY ATTACHED TO MY PORTABLE SYSTEM WITH 5000 ADA GPU. SO NEED TO RESOLVE ISSUE ALREADY IDENTIFIED BELOW. I NEED TECH SUPPORT FOR THIS AND IS AVAILABLE FROM 10 JAN. ADVICE ON THIS ON 10TH JAN WOULD BE APPRECIATED IF POSSIBLE. THIS WILL BECOME OUR PRIMARY SYSTEM AS IT IS THE ONLY ONE WITH AVA GPU. A MODEST REDUCTION IN CPU LOAD WILL HELP A LOT AS CURRENTLY WITH HIGHER SETTINGS IS HITTING 100% UTILISATION
3 FEMTO BOLTS WILL BE ATTACHED TO A BACKUP PORTABLE SYSTEM WITH RTX 3060 TI PROVEN TO WORK WITH THE SYSTEM PRIOR TO BETA 7.0 AND RELEASE 7.1.
I’m not sure what you are talking about with the Driver upgrade comment. Can you clarify? There should be no issue with drivers or compatibility between Ada generation graphics, and Femto Bolt and Azure Kinect.
The Femto Bolt uses the same USB3.0 extender cables for data.
For the Femto Bolt, power is run via wall power and cannot be powered by USB like with Azure Kinect.
WE ONLY POWER BY WALL POWER.
The sync cables are different Femto Bolts require Sync Hub Pro and Ethernet cables and adapters for sync. 10 cameras requires 2x sync hub pro to support all 10 sensors. Be sure you have the right sync hardware with your order.
PLEASE ADVISE EXACTLY WHAT IS NEEDED WITH ORDER LINKS
Hope this answers your questions.
IT DOES THANK YOU.
Have a great Xmas break. I am back from 3rd Jan see you on the 10th
