Video sequences in Security Desk that are exported in G64x format are automatically watermarked if the original video was watermarked, which preserves the digital signature of the video file. When a video file's authenticity is protected through watermarking, it is eligible in court as proof of evidence.

Within a single video file, the watermarking must remain the same. If the watermarking changes in the middle of a sequence that is being exported, Security Desk closes the current video file that it is writing to and creates a new file to store the remainder of the video sequence.

In the Export dialog box, each broken section of the sequence indicates Partial export, and the last part of the sequence indicates Successful. Each new section that is created is inserted after the last one that was created for the same camera.
NOTE: G64, ASF, and MP4 formats do not support watermarking. However, watermarking is supported when exporting video from federated Omnicast™ cameras.
