Run Scene Analysis

While you are training Media Server, you can use the Training Utility to start and stop ingestion and analysis (process actions). However, to run scene analysis in a production environment, do not start processing through the Training Utility. Instead, use the following procedure to create a configuration that contains a scene analysis task, and start the process action as described in Start Processing.

To detect important events in video

  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 SceneAnalysis.
    TrainingCfgName The name of the training configuration file to use to detect important events. This is the name of the file that you created using the Scene Analysis Training Utility.

    For example:

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