What Is the Avigilon Player?

The Avigilon Player is the video player for Avigilon Native Video Export (AVE) files and Avigilon Backup (AVK) files.

The Avigilon Player displays video in image panels, and allows you to control their playback through the Timeline. The Avigilon Player is able to authenticate video files against tampering, and can be used to re-export video into other formats. Both AVE and AVK video include event data embedded in the file, so you are also able to search for events that are linked to the video.

A copy of the Avigilon Player can be downloaded from the Avigilon website, or exported with the AVE file from the Avigilon Control Center™ Client software (see The Avigilon Control Center Client User Guide for more information).
