Common Questions

How do I change the Frame Rate and Bit Rate in Cerevo LiveShell?

Using the Cerevo LiveShell dashboard with either a tablet or the web access. Navigate to the main Dashboard.

Click on Custom:


Under the Video Quality section, select and change the Average Bit Rate to match your desired bit rate for streaming. Example: 3000Kbps = 3.0Mbps (roughly)


* Setting your LiveShell to anything higher than 5500Kbps can cause issue with the RTMP Stream. We recommend for a quality 720p - 1080p stream, the bit rates be between 3500Kbps and 5500Kbps.*

  • Below the Average Bit Rate is the Frame Rate.

  • Change the Frame Rate to match the Frame Rate of your equipment. We recommend 30fps as a standard.

  • Click on Close to save the settings.
