An AVE file may also be a video file created by Avigilon Control Center (ACC). It contains video recorded by one or more surveillance cameras and includes embedded event data and camera properties. AVE files can be played using the Avigilon Control Center Player.
When opening an AVE file in Avigilon Control Center Player, the video is immediately displayed in the View. If the AVE file stores video recorded from multiple cameras, each video is displayed by default. You can remove the video from a camera that is being displayed by right-clicking the image panel and selecting "Close" or clicking the "X" icon inside the image panel.
To export video in Avigilon Control Center Player, select the "Export" icon in the "Export" tab, choose the format from the "Format" dropdown menu, select the camera video you would like to export, enter the time range, set your desired options, and click Start Export. In the "Format" dropdown menu, select "Native" to export video as an AVE file. You can also export video as an .AVI video file, a .WAV audio file, a .PDF document, or a .JPEG, .PNG, .TIFF image file.
The Avigilon Control Center Player is included with the Avigilon Control Center Client software but can also be downloaded from the Avigilon website.
NOTE: AVE stands for Avigilon Native Video Export.
