What is BNP file?

The BNP extension is used in system data files created by some of Sony digital cameras which record image in HD resolution. These are image managing files , which containing metadata referring to actual videos, used by an internal camera system.

What BNP files are used for?

BNP files are used in cameras in order to display information about recorder videos, such as dates or number of recorded videos. Erasing BNP file may result in problems with playing videos on the device. This may be solved by sending video recordings onto a computer, where the BNP file is not required for proper display of clips.

BNP files are created automatically in camera systems along with each registered video. After being generated, they are stored in main catalogue of the device - AVF_INFO . BNP file is relatively large and may cover even couple hundred MBs. An example name of such file: AVIN001.BNP
