How to Enable HD Video for Lync 2010

One that might save a little bit of time for those folks wanting HD video for peer to peer calls between Lync clients…
You have to allow the maximum resolution to support HD 720p video – to do this you need a specific powershell cmdlet. Here’s how:

Set-CsMediaConfiguration -Identity:Global -MaxVideoRateAllowed HD720p15m

Restart the Lync Front End service and video calls can now utilise any 720p webcam that’s attached to the client.
So now you can see your colleague’s face in all its blemish free glory! 🙂
