To create stand-alone G64, ASF, and MP4 video files that you can play without connecting to Security Center, you can export from any task in Security Desk that displays live or playback video.

Before you begin

What you should know

  • When you export a G64, ASF, or MP4 video, the system does not include additional file information, such as camera name, creation date, and camera coordinates, which can be useful for investigation. To include additional file information, export the file as G64x.
  • If you lack the Single user export privilege, a second user with the Export video privilege must authorize the export.
  • If another export process is running, your export is queued and starts when the current export has finished.


  1. From the Security Desk home page, open any task that can display live or playback video.
  2. Select the video to export.
    • After generating a report, select one or more items from the report pane, and click Export video ().
    • Open video in a tile, right-click the tile, and click Camera > Export video.
    • In the Camera widget, click Export video ().

      You can export video from the selected tile or from all tiles.

    NOTE: Privacy protection is not removed from video streams during export. To export protected streams without blurring or anonymization, users with the Remove privacy protection privilege must remove privacy protection from the required streams before they click Export video.
    The Export settings dialog box opens:
  3. Set the date, time, and duration of the selected video sequences:
    1. Click the date, time, or duration setting.
    2. Enter the date and time for the start and end of the sequence, or drag the time range markers () to the desired length of time.
      NOTE: You can set a maximum time range of 24 hours.
  4. (Optional) To export a video sequence from a specific source, click All sources and select the source to export from.
  5. If required, update the name of the video file in the Filename field.
    By default, the file name includes the camera name, the date, and the duration of the video sequence.
    NOTE: Multiple video sequences exported at the same time are each saved as a separate file with a unique file name.
  6. (Optional) To save the video file in a specific subfolder of the Vault, click Vault and create or select a subfolder.
  7. In the File format list, select G64 (compatibility mode), ASF, or MP4.
  8. (Optional) If you have a KiwiVision™ Privacy Protector™ license, select Add privacy protection to pixelate motion in the exported video. This privacy protection is always applied using default settings.
  9. Click Export.
    If you do not have the Single user export privilege, the Authorization window opens, and a second user with the Export video privilege must enter their credentials to authorize the export.
    The export progress is shown in the notification tray (). To view the current progress or troubleshoot exporting errors, click More or Show details to open the Export dialog box.

    If another export process is running, your export is queued and starts when the previous export has finished. When your export is complete, the video files are created in the export folder that you specified, and the files are available in the Vault.
