What is Amped Engine?

Amped Engine is a command-line based application that allows support for proprietary video formats coming from CCTV/DVRs and other sources, and that easily integrates into third-party systems such as digital evidence management systems (DEMS), video analytics tools, and local storage.

Amped Engine converts video files in a forensically sound manner, preserving the original quality and separating standard encoding information from proprietary metadata to avoid errors and lost frames during playback.

Its straightforward command-line application programming interface (API) allows for a quick integration, with no need for complex software development kit (SDK) documentation or advanced programming knowledge.

Amped Engine is the perfect solution for bringing Amped’s unmatched lossless CCTV conversion capabilities into your software or infrastructure. With a simple command line instruction, you can convert proprietary videos to standard formats while, in most cases, retaining the original pixel values. The command line interface guarantees a simple, highly customizable, and documentable integration.



With Amped Engine, the process is simple and fast. A single call to the software executable and previously unplayable files can be viewed in seconds or minutes.


Amped Engine currently supports hundreds of proprietary video formats from DVRs and CCTVs, dash cams, body-worn cameras, and many more.

Easy to Integrate

Amped Engine can be easily integrated into your infrastructure or software thanks to its Command Line Interface. When the process is finished, the produced log file can be parsed by your application to inform the end user about the outcome of the conversion.


You can customize the conversion settings by adding parameters to the command or storing customized settings files to use later. This makes the conversion easily reproducible and highly customizable so that conversion settings can be adaptively adjusted based on external information and rules.

Forensically Sound

Amped Software knows how important it is for our users to maintain an audit trail for evidence and preserve original files; that is why Amped Engine maintains the original file, generates an open-format playable version (allowing preservation of the original pixels in most cases), and produces a report detailing the process.

Top Level Customer Support

Users can submit videos to Amped technical support for the files that Amped Engine hasn't encountered before, so our development team can decode them and add support for their formats in a software update.

Flexible Licensing

Amped Engine is a standalone console-base software compatible with standard Windows machines (either physical or virtual). The software is provided as an annual floating license based on the number of concurrent uses, and managed either with a network dongle or online licensing, depending on the availability or isolation from the Internet.
