High definition webcam streaming

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