To increase the image quality and decrease the bit rate for Axis H.264 video streams, the recording stream can be configured to use the Main profile in Config Tool.

What you should know

The Main profile is only supported on some Axis H.264 models. If the Profile option is not available in Config Tool, then the camera does not support the profile selection feature.


  1. From the Video task in Config Tool, select the camera to configure.
  2. Click the Video tab, and click the Stream 1 tab.
  3. From the Profile drop-down list, select Main profile.
  4. Click Apply.
