What is the latency of the ZED camera?

The ZED has a built-in USB 3.0 controller that enables low-latency data transmission with minimum polling and CPU usage, allowing the camera to transmit video data as soon as the frames are captured.

As a result, the latency on video delivery is lower than USB 2.0 cameras and do not exceed 2 to 3 frames. However, these figures are highly dependent on the Host USB controller and the Operating System.


Frame Rate Expected Latency
100 20ms - 30ms
60 30ms - 45ms
30 66ms - 100ms
15 133ms - 200ms
