Video export formats determine the media player that is used to view the exported video files. You can export video in G64 or in the Advanced Systems Format (ASF).

G64 export format

The G64x format is a Security Center format that supports bookmarks, motion indicators, metadata overlays, and audio and date-time information. All event markers are included, except the metadata markers. This format also supports variable frame rate and variable image resolution.

You need Security Desk or the Genetecâ„¢ Video Player to view G64 files.

ASF format

Advanced Systems Format (ASF) is a Microsoft proprietary data format. This format supports audio information and variable frame rate, but not metadata associated with the video sequence. Date and time information is also not supported, but it can be overlaid on the video images during the exporting process.

If the video sequence that you want to export uses multiple image resolutions (CIF, 2CIF, 4CIF, and so on), the exported video sequence follows the image resolution of the first frame rate in the source video sequence. In addition, metadata that is associated with the video sequence is not exported. You can use this format if you need to make a copy of a video recording to share with law enforcement, your legal department, or other members of your security team.

When you export multiple ASF video sequences from the canvas simultaneously, a single ASX file is produced so you can view the ASF files in the order they were recorded.

You need Windows Media Player to view ASF video files.
