Configure the Upstream Media Server

This section describes how to configure Media Server to send records to another Media Server.

To send records to another Media Server

  1. Create a new configuration to send to Media Server with the process action, or open an existing configuration that you want to modify.

  2. In the [Analysis] section, add a new analysis task by setting the AnalysisEngineN parameter. You can give the task any name, for example:

    [Analysis]
    AnalysisEngine0=...
    AnalysisEngine1=RemoteAnalysis
  3. Below the [Analysis] section, create a new configuration section by typing the task name inside square brackets. For example:

    [RemoteAnalysis]
  4. In the new section, set the following parameters:

    Type The analysis engine to use. Set this parameter to RemoteAnalysis.
    Host The host name or IP address of the Media Server to send records to.
    Port The ACI port of the Media Server to send records to.
    ConfigName The name of the configuration file that the downstream Media Server must use to ingest and analyze the records (this file must be present in the folder specified by the ConfigDirectory configuration parameter on the downstream Media Server).
    Input

    The name of the track to send to the remote Media Server for remote analysis.

    You can provide an alias to simplify the track name when you configure the other Media Server. To do this specify the track name as Alias:TaskName.TrackName, where:

    • Alias is the track name to present to the remote Media Server.
    • TaskName is the name of the task that produced the track.
    • TrackName is the name of the track.
    Output

    A comma-separated list of tracks, generated by the remote Media Server, to output from the remote analysis task. These tracks are then available for further processing on this Media Server.

    Specify the track names as Alias:TaskName.TrackName, where:

    • Alias is the track name to present to subsequent tasks on this Media Server.
    • TaskName is the name of the task, on the remote Media Server, that produced the track.
    • TrackName is the name of the track, on the remote Media Server.

    For example:

    [RemoteAnalysis]
    Type=RemoteAnalysis
    Host=gpu-mediaserver
    Port=14000
    ConfigName=RemoteFaceRecognition
    Input=DetectedFaces:Crop.Output
    // where "Crop" is a transform task to crop images of
    // detected faces from the face detection ResultWithSource track
    Output=RecognizedFaces:FaceRecognition.Result
    // makes results available to subsequent tasks
    // as RemoteAnalysis.RecognizedFaces
  5. Save and close the configuration file. HPE recommends that you save your configuration files in the location specified by the ConfigDirectory parameter.
