    1. Intel has partnered with Softkinetic two years ago:

      However, I'm not sure the current generation is still based on Softkinetic technology.

  2. Intel bought two 3D companies (so far) which one is active stereo (Tzyx), the other a form of structured light (can't remember the name). SoftKinetic is not used in RealSense
