A proper set of resolution, frame rate, and field of view (FOV) configuration helps you get sharp image and appropriate framing.

Field of view

The field of view determines the width of the view that you can see from the camera. The higher degree you set, the wider view you get.

When Best overview is enabled, the field of view is set to 81. You can't change it. When you disable Best overview, the field of view restores to your last setting.

Default: 81

Options: 65, 70, 75, 81

Resolution

Choose a resolution for the video recordings and static pictures you take with the camera app.

A higher resolution rate provides a higher image clarity, and requires more storage to save the recorded videos and snapshots.


 

We recommend that you use the default resolution for video conferences or set it to match your conferencing application.

Default: 1280x720

Options:

  • 4096x2160 (USB 3.0 required, and unavailable in Best Overview mode.)

  • 3840x2160 (USB 3.0 required and unavailable in Best Overview mode.)

  • 1920x1080

  • 1280x720

  • 896x480

  • 640x360

  • 512x288

  • 448x240

  • 320x180

  • 256x144

Frame rate

Choose a frame rate from the drop-down list.

The frame rate is measured with frames per second (fps). A higher frame rate provides a smoother video display, results in higher CPU utilization on your computer and requires more storage to save the recorded video files.

Choose the frame rate that suits your network and computer. The available options vary with the resolution that you specified and the USB port specification on your computer.


 

60fps is available for 1920x1080 when you connect the camera to a USB 3.0 port. Don't set the frame rate to 60fps when using your Cisco Desk Camera 4K for video conferencing. Otherwise, the video quality degrades.

Default: 30

Options: 15, 30, 60
