Removing encryption from video archives

You cannot remove the encryption from your video archives. However, you can export your video archives without encryption, using the ASF format.

Before you begin

You need a client machine authorized to access the encrypted camera, and a Security Center user account that has both the Use ASF format and Remove encryption privileges.

To export video from an encrypted camera without the encryption:

  1. Open Security Desk from the authorized client workstation.
  2. Export the video you want in ASF format.
    For information on exporting video, see the Security Center User Guide.
