Camera Settings Icon

Under the Camera Settings Icon there are 2 Tabs:


  • Max Bitrate – This sets the bandwidth used by the camera. By Default the optimal Bitrate is 2048 and we do not recommend changing
  • VBR – (Variable Bit Rate) Default is 0. Higher numbers will provide a better video contrast but reduce clarity
  • Frame Rate – Higher the Frame Rate the more images that will be streamed per second. More frames will increase bandwidth and can decrease image clarity
  • Resolution – pixels supported by the camera imager. Typically the higher the pixel count the more clarity
