Visual Display policy settings

Dec 13, 2013

The Visual Display section contains policy settings for controlling the quality of images sent from virtual desktops to the user device.

Target frame rate

This setting specifies the maximum number of frames per second sent to the user device from the virtual desktop.

By default, the maximum is 30 frames per second.

Setting a high number of frames per second (for example, 30) improves the user experience, but requires more bandwidth. Decreasing the number of frames per second (for example, 10) maximizes server scalability at the expense of user experience.

Visual quality

This setting specifies the desired visual quality for images displayed on the user device.

By default, this is set to Medium.

To specify the quality of images, choose one of the following options:
  • Low
  • Medium
  • High
  • Build to lossless
  • Always lossless

In cases where preserving image data is vital, for example, when displaying X-ray images where no loss of quality is acceptable, select Always lossless to ensure lossy data is never sent to the user device.

Selecting Build to lossless sends lossy images to the user device during periods of high network activity and lossless images after network activity reduces.

Note: If the Legacy graphics mode setting is enabled for a policy, the Visual quality setting has no effect in that policy.
