[KBA-00911] PTZ zoom speed not respected when using mouse wheel in Omnicast™

This article explains why zooming in and out on a PTZ using a mouse wheel is always done at the same speed, regardless of zoom speed settings in Omnicast™.

Symptoms

The speed at which a PTZ camera zooms in and out can be adjusted in Live Viewer by increasing the speed meter next to the PTZ controls.

This works fine when zooming with a joystick or the Live Viewer PTZ buttons, but zooming using a mouse wheel (left SHIFT+mouse wheel) does respect the set speed. The PTZ acts as if it was configured for the default, medium speed.

Cause

Omnicast™ does not change the proper variable when it receives the commands from the mouse.

Workaround

None.

Status

This issue is fixed in Omnicast™ 4.8 SR1.
