I've been trying to find ways to improve the Teams Live events performance, mainly video quality / bitrate. However, I fear that there's a limit above which the quality cannot be improved.

 

I even tested with an eCDN provider but viewers can never get more that 720p@1.5Mbit/s.

I am puzzled. How can 720p@1.5MBit/s ever be enough? Even on a 14" Notebook it's almost impossible to read Excel table data let alone viewing it on a 27" or above screen.

 

Moreoever, the Live Event recording suffers even worse. It's usually around 600KBit/s with 66Kbit/s for audio. This is way from being contemporary.

 

I feel there's something fundamentally wrong and was wondering if it's still something wrong in our configuration or if you have the same experiences. Would love to hear your feedback.

Please forgive me for bumping my own thread but I'm really curious to know if anybody else feels that the video stream quality is not enough to be able to adequately read text from the shared material. Thanks.
