the online-help say

"MVDepthGraphics[fmt] returns a graphics object with the depth buffer  \
depending in fmt the depth is tranfromed into ChromaDepth colors.  The
format \
may be RGBColor for black background ChromaDepth images,  CMYKColor for
white \
background ChromaDepth images or GrayLevel for  the plain depth buffer
in 8 \
bit resolution."

and so for a notebook with white background


Look into the MVManual, the section "Chroma Depth Images"
has several examples.

You can save the images directly from Mathematica with
  "a image format you like",
  "The extension you need",
