Classify Images

To classify images or video frames

  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:

  3. Create a new configuration section to contain the task settings, and set the following parameters:

    Type The analysis engine to use. Set this parameter to ObjectClass.
    Input (Optional) The image track to process. If you do not specify an input track, Media Server processes the first track of the correct type that is produced by the ingest engine.
    Classifier The classifier to use for classification. Media Server categorizes objects into the classes in this classifier.
    ClassificationThreshold (Optional) The minimum confidence score necessary for Media Server to output a classification result. Any classification result with a confidence score below the threshold is discarded.

    For example:


    For more information about these parameters, refer to the Media Server Reference.

  4. Save and close the configuration file. HPE recommends that you save your configuration files in the location specified by the ConfigDirectory parameter.
