API Languages

The Azure Kinect Sensor SDK is primarily a C API. This documentation covers the Python wrapper extension to the API. For the most detailed documentation of API behavior, see the documentation for the C functions that the Python classes wrap.


Refer to the Examples for example Python code to effectively use the Python API. Once the Python API package is installed, a simple "import k4a" will give you access to all the classes and enums used in the API.
