How to improve meeting video and picture quality

Enable HD video

Video conferencing in HD quality is a great way for your business meetings to be more productive.

Note : 

The COVID-19 incident led to a change in the availability of 720p-quality video for meetings requiring at least 2 people on the conference call; 1080p quality is currently reserved for special use cases only. Meetings in 720p will only be available to Pro account users and above. If you’d like more information, please see our requirements for Group HD for more information.

For example, if you want to use higher-quality video in a meeting or a webinar, you can enable HD video, allowing you to use 720p or 1080p. This can be done using the Zoom client by following the instructions below.

  1. If you’re using the Zoom desktop client, you need to click your profile pic, followed by Settings.

  • Next, click the Video tab.
  • Then click HD.
Note :

Nevertheless, you should make sure that your device meets the bandwidth requirements as well even with the setting enabled.

Adjust for low light

If you are attending a remote video conference in a dark environment, Zoom’s low light mode allows you to brighten up your video so that it is easier to see during the video conference.

  1. Click the profile picture on the Zoom desktop client and then click on Settings on the dialog box that appears.
