Why does depth and color streaming fail to start?

Users may find this error if they have not calibrated their sensor to their iPad.

Calibration aligns the sensor's depth stream with the iPad camera's color stream, ensuring that the mesh generated is properly colorized. These values are stored on the sensor itself, and Skanect requires them for color and depth capture.

Please download Calibrator and be sure to calibrate both with and without the Wide Vision Lens. For a more in-depth guide, please see this article and this tutorial video.

Once calibrated, close out of Structure Uplink and Skanect and restart both apps. Ensure that Skanect's Uplink Mode is set to Depth & Color, and you should be off to the races!
