Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops


High definition webcam streaming

Webcams can be used by video conferencing applications running within the virtual session. The application on the server selects the webcam format and resolution based on the supported format types. When a session starts, the client sends the webcam information to the server. Choose a webcam from the video conferencing application. When the webcam and the application both support high-definition rendering, the application uses high-definition resolution. We support webcam resolutions up to 1920x1080.

This feature requires the Citrix Receiver for Windows, minimum version 4.10. For a list of Citrix Workspace app platforms that support HDX webcam redirection, see Citrix Workspace app feature matrix.

For more information about high-definition webcam streaming, see HDX video conferencing and webcam video compression.

You can use a registry key to disable and enable the feature and then configure a specific resolution. For information, see High-definition webcam streaming and High-definition webcam resolution in the list of features managed through the registry.
