    NatDevice is a high performance, cross-platform camera and microphone streaming API for Unity Engine. To start, discover available media devices:

    // Create a media device query for a camera device
    var filter = MediaDeviceCriteria.CameraDevice;
    var query = new MediaDeviceQuery(filter);
    // Get the first camera device
    var device = query.current as CameraDevice;

    Then stream camera images or audio buffers from the device:

    // Start streaming camera images
    void OnCameraImage (CameraImage image) {
        // Do stuff

    From here, you can utilize extensive functionality provided by the API to build your interactive applications. Features include:

    • Ultra-low Latency. Stream the camera preview and microphone audio into Unity with extremely small overhead.

    • Ultra-high Resolution. NatDevice supports high resolution camera previews, at full HD and higher on devices that support it.

    • Extensive Camera Control. Set the camera exposure mode, exposure point, exposure duration, focus mode, focus point, flash mode, white balance mode, torch mode, zoom, and more.

    • Granular Microphone Control. Configure the microphone sample rate, channel count, and echo cancellation mode on devices that support it.

    • Machine Learning Integration. NatDevice tightly integrates with NatML for building machine learning and computer vision apps.

    • Video Recording Integration. NatDevice tightly integrates with NatCorder for enabling user-generated content.
