Post subject:  Dual Sensor Setup - Kinect Xbox vs Xtion Pro Live

I've been using a dual Kinect for Xbox setup with ipisoft for about a year now, but recently started using a Xtion Pro Live for Faceshift facial capture. What I'm wondering is if its worth considering a 2nd Xtion sensor so I can use them for ipisoft instead of the Kinects. I'm curious how much improvement in capture quality I might expect. Or maybe it's just better to wait and see what happens with the Kinect 2 later this year.

Xtion/Carmine sensors have a bit less overall noise in their data compared to Kinect, but that's totally not critical. The main advantages are more compact size and absence of power adapter - thus, better portability.
Kinect 2 has a better depth resolution, which increases the accuracy. But again, the difference with current sensors won't be dramatic. Though it appears worthwhile to wait for. I think, it might make a difference for FaceShift, too.
