Does CAT6/6A Provide Better Video Quality Than CAT5E?

In another group, a poster stated that Cat6 provides better video quality than Cat5.

The argument was that Cat6/A has a higher bandwidth. If a camera starts to see that it is dropping/losing packets to the VMS, it will start to lower the bit rate.

Do cameras automatically adjust bit rate if packets are dropped?

If the network is designed with all gigabit equipment, and its a 30-50 camera system, is this even a concern?

Thoughts?
