Calculating Bandwidth Requirements for Video Conferencing

To ensure the best video conferencing experience, it is essential to understand your video conferencing bandwidth. Bandwidth represents your connection capacity. Depending on data transmission, your bandwidth is shared between outbound and inbound streams, which may significantly differ.

Below you can find inbound and outbound bandwidth requirements which guarantee the best possible video conferencing quality. However, by using TrueConf you can be sure that your stream rate always adjusts to your network conditions, as our solutions are based on Scalable Video Coding (SVC).
