I use the openni SimpleViewer, the depth value is 10000 max. Can somebody tell me what's the value stands for? Why it's not 2047 max ? I find that there is an SampleConfig.xml, how to configure my kinect?

Hi, the value of 10000 is the maximum depth in millimeters. Thats not a software limit, but a limit given by the hardware. Also the value is somewhere given in the OpenNI/PS-Engine libraries. As "Mac" mentioned, the point clouds published by the node is already in meters in the corresponding coordinate frame.

If you use the published PointCloud (/camera/rgb/points, in the most-recent version), you'll get values in meters, already projected into 3D.
