Vuforia dataset size

September 13, 2016 - 6:08am #1

Hello,

We are trying to create an app with a database of 100 image targets. The image targets would be printed on paper for augmenting with videos and the size of each image target is to be 8 cms width by 6 cms height. We uploaded 100 images to the Vuforia target manager to create the database. Each image target has a size of around 64 kb and the total size of the 100 images is around 6 + MB. The resultant database that Vuforia created is around 21.1 MB. 

Please advise us on how to reduce the size of the database. We indicated a width of 10 in the width field in the target manager.  Should we reduce this width since we don't expect our users to view the image target from more than a meter in distance? Will reducing the size of the images bring down the database size? 

We are looking to build an app based on the Vuforia video playback sample.

Please advise us on how to reduce the size of the image target database.

Thanks

Hello,

You cannot reduce the device database size footprint by altering the size of the images uploaded to the Target Manager, or the sizes specified as part of the workflow. The images as uploaded to the portal are not packaged with the device database.

One suggestion on how to reduce the app size footprint is to use our CloudReco feature. This way all targets are stored remotely - not on device.

Thanks
