From the Vehicle route playback task, you can export the route playback layout to a standalone video player that can be viewed outside of Security Desk. The standalone player is supplied with the Security Center Fleet Monitoring package.

What you should know

You can use the offline route playback feature to do the following:
  • Play back synchronized video and vehicle routes
  • Modify video tile patterns and sizes
  • Organize tiles to show particular data
  • Verify the digital signature on a video file within the player

Procedure

  1. From the Security Desk home page, open the Vehicle route playback task.
  2. Display the entities whose route playback you want to export.
    The task exports the map's zoom level and the tile layout as they are currently displayed.
  3. In the Time frame section, set the time frame to export:
    • If this is the first time you are exporting a vehicle route playback, set a time frame of about one minute. This accelerates the process of generating the standalone video player.
    • If you have already generated the standalone video player, set the time frame you want to export.
    NOTE: If one of the tiles is not displaying any information, try adjusting the time frame. A blank tile means the associated device was not capturing information during the specified time frame.
  4. In the Playback section, click Export ().
    The Vehicle route playback export window opens.
  5. In the Save to field, click Browse and select where the exported route playback is saved.
  6. To disable encryption for the exported route playback, clear the Encryption check box.
    Encryption is enabled by default.
  7. If encryption is enabled, in the Password field, enter a password.
    CAUTION:
    The password must be 16 characters long, and must be entered to view the route playback in the standalone video player. There is no password recovery option available.
  8. From the Export type list, select how to export the route playback:
    • If this is the first time you are exporting a vehicle route playback, select Package for distribution.

      This creates the standalone player used to view the exported route playback.

    • If you have already generated the standalone video player and want to export the route playback as a compressed file, select Data only (zip file).
    • If you have already generated the standalone video player and want to export the route playback as an uncompressed file, select Data only (no zip).
  9. Click Export.
    The export activity is shown in the window. When the task is complete, the route playback is exported to the location you selected.
  10. (Optional) Review the exported route playback:
    1. If you are running a version of Security Center other than 5.7, close any open Security Center windows.
    2. Open the RoutePlayback.exe file.
      The standalone video player opens.
    3. If you selected a Data only export type or want to view another exported route playback, in the Route playback files section, click Browse and select the route playback files to view.
    4. If the route playback files are compressed, in the Extract route playback file window, click Unzip.
    5. If the route playback files are encrypted, in the Decrypt route playback files window, enter the password and click Decrypt.
    The exported route playback is displayed.
