Depth- och IR-data from RealSense camera (SR300)?

I try to combine a realsense SR300 camera, OpenCV and TensorFlow under Windows.

I can get that RGB stream from the camera when using OpenCV in python on windows. But how do I get the depth and IR image in python or do I have to do it all in c++?

I have found PyRealSense but I don't know how to install it as I have never worked with Python earlier. Is PyRealSense, what I need or what do I need to get this combination with ir and depth to work?

On Unix platform, I had to build librealsense library. On Windows, you have access to the Intel SDK for C++ / C#. You can find some documentation here.

If you know C++ / C#, you should switch to these languages in my opinion.

It looks harder to use OpenCV and TensorFlow from C++ than Python. But maybe that is the way I have to go. Python feels much more straightforward.

If I use Python it would be cross-platform. Do I have to compile librealsense for Windows or is there a executable installation?

For Windows.

Librealsense looks like Intel Realsense SDK?
