You can configure group policy settings that control the behavior of Real-Time Audio-Video (RTAV) on your remote desktops. These settings determine a virtual webcam's maximum frame rate and image resolution. The settings allow you to manage the maximum bandwidth that any one user can consume. An additional setting disables or enables the RTAV feature.

You do not have to configure these policy settings. Real-Time Audio-Video works with the frame rate and image resolution that are set for the webcam on client systems. The default settings are recommended for most webcam and audio applications.

For examples of bandwidth use during Real-Time Audio-Video, see Real-Time Audio-Video Bandwidth.

These policy settings affect your remote desktops, not the client systems to which the physical devices are connected. To configure these settings on your desktops, add the RTAV Group Policy Administrative Template (ADMX) file in Active Directory.

For information about configuring settings on client systems, see the VMware knowledge base article, Setting Frame Rates and Resolution for Real-Time Audio-Video on Horizon View Clients, at
