Introduction
Ocularis Viewer User Manual
Introduction
The Ocularis™ Viewer is a stand alone application that allows users to view video clips exported from either
Ocularis™ Client or Ocularis™ Client Lite. The exported video is in Ocularis database format. Users need
not have the full featured Ocularis Client in order to view the encrypted video.
The Ocularis Viewer allows users to:
 View and playback video clips exported from Ocularis Client or Ocularis Client Lite.
 Export additional clips from the original clip.
 Export still images from the original clip.
 Print reports based on images in the original clip
Why use Ocularis Database Format instead of Windows standard .avi format?
There are situations where it is more beneficial to export video from Ocularis Client to Ocularis
Database Format rather than to .avi format:

.avi format supports only 1 camera stream per file. Ocularis Database Format supports multiple
streams in the same file.

Ocularis Database Format video supports file encryption for security

Ocularis Database Format video supports password protection for security

By using the Ocularis Viewer with Ocularis Database Format video, users have a fully functioning
video application that goes beyond simply playing back video. You can print from the video clip or
export additional clips to .avi format.

Where a Video Clip Originates
The Ocularis Viewer is used to view video evidence that is exported from Ocularis Client or Ocularis Client
Lite. The video is in proprietary format and contains a “.oml” file extension.
The Ocularis Viewer is used in lieu of having the Ocularis Client or Ocularis Client Lite installed on the PC. It
is available two ways:
1.
When the Ocularis Client software is installed, the Ocularis Viewer application is also installed on
the same workstation.
2.
When a Database Format video clip is exported from Ocularis Client or Ocularis Client Lite, the
Ocularis Viewer may also be included as part of the export.
From the Ocularis Client or Ocularis Client Lite Export Options screen, a user selects ‘Database
Format’:
The Export to Database Format Dialog Box
The ‘Export Ocularis Viewer to same directory’ checkbox should be checked to include the Ocularis
Viewer application as part of the export.
Exported Results
Once the export process is finished, the following will be found in the destination folder:

a ‘[filename].oml’ file

a folder named ‘Data’

a folder named ‘Ocularis Viewer’ (if the option to ‘Export Ocularis Viewer to same directory’
checkbox was selected)
