Team network requirement




1.2 Mbps Peer-to-peer HD quality video calling with resolution of HD 720p at 30fps
1.5 Mbps Peer-to-peer HD quality video calling with resolution of HD 1080p at 30fps
500kbps/1Mbps Group Video calling
1Mbps/2Mbps HD Group video calling (540p videos on 1080p screen)

What if i Change to 60fps 

and what does it mean by 540p videos on 1080p screen

Hi @supportsib,

fps means Frames per second. Here is a definition

The greater the FPS, the smoother the video motion appears, and the greater the speed at which images are shown. Full-motion video is usually 30 FPS or greater. For example, movies are usually displayed at 24fps, since this frame rate is similar to how we see the world, and creates a very cinematic look. Video that’s broadcast live or video with a lot of motion, such as a sporting event or video game recording, will often have a higher frame rate, as there’s a lot happening at once and a higher frame rate keeps the motion smooth and the details crisp.

Some Teams cameras are designed to be able to capture higher fps

Video content with a higher frame rate has more data to transmit compared to a video with a lower frame rate, but as the article below states - which is a good read - you may not need 60 fps depending on what you are trying to achieve

540p on 1080p screen means 540 pixel videos on a 1080 pixel screen refers to the resolution of the video call. As a general rule the higher the resolution the higher the bandwidth. Now, groups calls because they have more people on them will be higher bandwidth than peer-to-peer or 1:1 video calls.

There is a uservoice open to be able to set your own video resolution quality in the Teams Meeting here

Hope that answers your question

Best, Chris
