          I will not be able to answer all of your questions myself, but I shall attempt to address some of them.

           

          Types of  RealSense units(Long Range and Short Range)

           

          SHORT RANGE

          SR300 (1.5 m approx)

           

          LONG RANGE

          R200 (4 - 5 m approx)

          ZR300 ( 3.5m indoor range and longer range outdoors)

           

          • Development kits availability

           

          Development kits are available on the Intel store page.

           

          Intel® RealSense™ Developer Kits

           

          • SW Development tool chain

           

          By SW, I am guessing you mean the software development tool chain.

           

          Intel's RealSense SDK currently supports the F200 camera (the now-unavailable predecessor of the SR300) and the SR300 camera.  Active development of tools for the R200 ceased at the previous '2016 R2' SDK version, though the open-source SDK Librealsense will likely continue to support it.

           

          The ZR300 development kit is not available until 28 February 2017, so support for it is not in the SDK yet.  Intel's plans regarding SDK support will likely be announced soon.

           

          • OS support, Support for custom Linux OS

           

          The official RealSense SDK supports Windows 10, or Windows 8.1 for R200 (with an OS update), and Windows 10 only for the SR300.

           

          Support for Linux and Mac OSX is provided via the Librealsense open-source SDK.

          • Model Number

           

          The model numbers listed in the Intel developer kit store are:

           

          R200: # :VF0830 ($169.99 model - the $99 model is listed as a 'special introductory price', so may be listed on there in error)

          SR300: # :06VF081000003

          ZR300:# :955176

           

          • Part Number

           

          SR300

          MM#943228, H89061-XXX

           

          R200

          MM#939143

           

          ZR300

          Unknown.

           

          • Data sheets

          • Tutorial and customer support during development phase

           

          Support is provided by Intel support staff and community members through this support community site.  There is also a large amount of tutorial articles on using RealSense that are available on Intel websites and from other sources.

           

          • Availability for commercial use

           

          This has always been a somewhat unclear area of policy.  The official policy on the RealSense developer kit store is:

           

          "The Camera is intended solely for use by developers with the Intel® RealSense SDK for Windows solely for the purposes of developing applications using Intel RealSense technology.  The Camera may not be used for any other purpose, and may not be dismantled or in any way reverse engineered."

           

          Of course, there are commercial products that make use of the RealSense technology, such as drones, laptop PCs and the Razer Stargazer camera, which is a Razer-branded version of the SR300.  The distinction may be that they contain the RealSense camera -circuit board- and do not make use of the Developer Kits purchased from the Intel store.

           

          It would also be permissible, I believe, to purchase 500 Developer Kits and use them to run a RealSense application that was developed with the camera.  Where it may fall foul of the commercial use policy is if you intended to sell them onwards somehow (e.g bundled with another product that you were selling).  I'm sure someone at Intel could give you clear advice about what is and is not permitted.

           

          • Unit price for commercial use

           

          Unknown.  As far as I know, the Intel online store price is the price that you pay per unit.

           

          • Mass Procurement unit price (unit price for 10, 100, 500 numbers)

           

          Unknown.  If such a bulk-buy policy exists, it would be up to Intel to discuss the terms of that with you.  If a bulk-buy policy existed for volumes in the low range (e.g 10), it would likely be listed in the store's policies.  I have not seen such a policy.

           

          Please share the contact details of RealSense marketing sales and purchasing representative

           

          I have observed that the correct course of action is to let a particular Intel representative post here to volunteer themselves as a contact if they see this message and feel that they can act as a go-between to refer your inquiry to the appropriate department.

                  Hello,

                  I must say that I am awed at MartyG's depth of knowledge and thoroughness. Yermi, thanks also for your information. I will add just a tad of clarification to some items.

                  OS Support
                  There is a RealSense SDK for Linux, available here https://github.com/IntelRealSense/realsense_sdk, that supports just the ZR300 camera. It provides libraries for person tracking, object tracking, and SLAM. 

                  ZR300 Part Number is 995176 which is the same model number MartyG pointed out.

                  Commercial Use
                  The development kits that are for sale on Click are meant for development purposes only. They come with a 90-day return policy. Therefore they are not recommended for commercial use or productization.

                  For commercial use, we recommend you purchase camera modules (they are what is inside the development kit) from Intel distributors.

                  Bulk Purchase
                  If you want to use RealSense cameras in a product and want to buy in bulk, you should purchase the camera modules at Intel distributors like Mouser or Arrow. Just about any Intel distributor can order these modules for you.

                  Unit pricing, mass procurement, sales
                  Contact your favorite Intel distributor for bulk sales of RealSense camera modules.

                  I hope this answers all of your questions.

                    Hello Jesus,

                     

                    Thank you so much for sharing valuable information

                    We are seeking to buy directly from intel instead of distributors...

                    For our business reasons i will take up this with my internal purchasing team to follow with RealSense Sales team

                     

                    Thank you

                      There was a full stop on the end of the website URL for the RealSense site that stopped it from working.  This should work:
