Import a Detector

HPE may provide detectors that you can use with Media Server to run object detection. These detectors are pre-trained, and to use one you only need to import the training data into your Media Server database. For a list of the available pre-trained detectors, see Pre-Trained Object Detectors.

To import a detector

  1. Go to and download the detector to your Media Server machine. When you download the detector, ensure the version of the detector matches the version of Media Server that you are using.

  2. Import the training data by running the action ImportDetector, for example if you downloaded the file to the folder pretrained/objectdetection, in the Media Server installation folder:



    detector The name to give to the imported detector.
    detectorpath The path of the detector data file on disk
    detectordata The detector data (you can set this as an alternative to detectorpath).

    Media Server imports the data. You can now run object detection.
