Set up a Task to Generate Image Hashes

To generate image hashes

  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 ImageHash.
    Input (Optional) The name of the track to generate image hashes from.
    Region (Optional) To create a hash from a region of the image, instead of the entire image, specify the region.
    RegionUnit (Optional) The units used to specify the position and size of the region of interest (pixel or percent).
  4. Save and close the configuration file. HPE recommends that you save your configuration files in the location specified by the ConfigDirectory parameter.
