Security Center 5.6

To protect your exported video files, you can encrypt them by setting a password. Selecting this option converts the exported video files into GEK format, which must then be decrypted before viewing.

What you should know

To view an exported video file that was encrypted, you must decrypt the file from the Video file explorer task. After decrypting a file, you can then view it in a tile and open it from the export file.


  1. From the home page, do one of the following:
    • Click Tools > Vault.
    • Open the Video file explorer task, and select the folder that contains the unencrypted G64 video file.
  2. Select the video file, and click Encrypt files ().
    NOTE: To select multiple video files, hold the CTRL or SHIFT keys.
  3. In the Encryption settings dialog box, select a Destination folder.
  4. In the Encryption key field, type a password and then click Encrypt.


A GEK video file is created, indicating that the video file is encrypted. In the Vault, the file is shown as encrypted.
