Finally we will modify the settings of Video codecs (section "Services – Phone – Video"). Set there the highest possible resolution (VGA or HD that is available only for Helios 2N® IP Verso) and also modify the bitrate and framerate parameters if needed. Consider the bandwidth consumption during the settings.
