    FLEXIDOME panoramic 5100i IR Dewarping Quad view: ePTZ is working only for 1 top left cameo


    Possible causes and solution(s)


    • Causes


    When looking at the live view via browser (Dewarped view mode) of FLEXIDOME panoramic 5100i IR camera, the ePTZ controls work only for the 1 top left cameo.

    Also, the Active region cannot be selected – there is no action when trying to select one of the regions out of the 4 present in the Live view

    • Camera details:
      • FLEXIDOME panoramic 5100i IR
      • Firmware version: 8.50.0138
      • CTN: NDS-5703-F360LE

    • Browsers used:
      • Firefox - 101.0.1
      • Edge - 89.0.774.68
      • Internet Explorer - 21H1 (OS Build 19043.1348)

    Edge Dewarp introduced in FW 8.50: the ePTZ was only possible in IE 11; all other browsers failed.

    This was due to the web page had an incorrect style tag, which was refused by modern browsers.


    • Solution


    This behavior is fixed in CPP14.2 FW 8.51.0009. It is released and available in the DLS.

    "An issue is fixed where, in onboard dewarping mode, only the top-left image pane of a quad view could be PTZ controlled." and the cameras are working as the edge dewarping limitations state.  → Release Letter


    Please upgrade your FLEXIDOME panoramic 5100i IR camera to the Firmware version 8.51.0009 or higher (CPP14.2)

    All CPP14.2 Firmware versions are available on the Download Store web page: select Firmware tab > choose Cameras and Encoders & CPP 14.2 > click Select > download the Firmware version 8.51.0009 or higher by clicking on the corresponded link, under the Reference column

    🛈 Note:

    BVMS: We do not support ePTZ for Camera 2 and 3 in edge Dewarp mode. They will only be displayed as fixed cameras, no option for PTZ.

    • Camera 1 will appear as panoramic camera which we can control via ePTZ.

    Video Security Client (VSC): only support controlling the individual sectors for client-side dewarping.

    • Restriction is mentioned in the VSC Release Letter.
