This section describes how to create an analysis task to recognize faces that appear in media.
To run face recognition, you must first detect faces by setting up a face detection task. For information about how to do this, see Detect Faces.
To recognize faces in media
Create a new configuration to send to Media Server with the
process action, or open an existing configuration that you want to modify.
[Analysis] section, add a new analysis task by setting the
AnalysisEngineN parameter. You can give the task any name, for example:
[Analysis] AnalysisEngine0=FaceDetect AnalysisEngine1=FaceRecognize
Create a new configuration section to contain the task settings, and set the following parameters:
||The analysis engine to use. Set this parameter to
||The track that contains detected faces that you want to recognize. Set this parameter to the
||(Optional) The database to use for recognizing the detected faces. By default, Media Server uses all available data. Database names are case-sensitive.|
If you are creating a configuration to run under a surveillance license, and you want to recognize more than 250 faces, set the
Alternatively, you can set
||(Optional) The minimum confidence score required to recognize a face.|
||(Optional) The maximum number of results to return, if the face matches more than one entry in the training database(s).|
[FaceRecognize] Type=FaceRecognize Input=FaceDetect.ResultWithSource RecognitionThreshold=60 MaxRecognitionResults=1
For a complete list of parameters that you can use to configure a face recognition task, and more information about these parameters, refer to the Media Server Reference.
Save and close the configuration file. HPE recommends that you save your configuration files in the location specified by the
