Resolution of front camera on iPad Air 2

December 30, 2015 - 5:31am #1

Hi there,

I am developing an iPad AR application based on Vuforia. I find the resolution of front camera image on iPad Air 2 is only 360x480 (60fps) in all 3 camera modes. However, all other iPads in my team can output 480x640 image. Could anyone help me on how to make Air 2 output a higher resolution image?

P.S. Is there any new progess on supporting higher resolution output on other new iPad models (iPad mini 4, etc.)? They can only capture 480x640 image in QCAR as far as i know.

Thank you for providing the screenshots. I've opened a ticket for this issue with our engineering group.

Hi dm3d,

Attachments are screenshots on Air1 and Air2, both captured by the Vuforia sample app. It is quite clear that the image quality on Air1 is better than that on Air2.

Please note pixel resolution of these images are not actual camera resolution, the images been upscaled to 1536x2048 by Ios.

I also get 480x360 (60fps) values from front camera on an iPad Air 2 (9.2). Comparing the result on screen to an iPad Air 1 (9.2), the difference seemed minor. We are looking into why these dimensions are being returned for Air 2. Are you able to see significant difference in image quality for front cam between Air 2 and Air 1 or other retina iPad? If so, could you post screenshots?

Hi,

The width and height in VideoModeData is 360 and 480 respectively even if MODE_OPTIMIZE_QUALITY is chosen.

(Info about my development environment: Xcode 7.2 on Mac os 10.11.2, iPad Air 2 A1566, ios8.3, vuforia 5.0.10, using ios ntive APIs.)

Thanks.

Can you confirm the resolution of the front cam on your iPad Air 2 with the instructions and script in this thread:
