Receive Ingest Engine

The Receive ingest engine ingests information (images or video frames, and metadata) that was output by another Media Server. For information about how to split processing across multiple Media Servers, refer to the Media Server Administration Guide.

To configure a task that uses the Receive ingest engine, you can set the following parameters:

Configuration Parameter Description
Input A comma-separated list of tracks to receive from the other Media Server.
Type The type of ingest engine to use. Set this parameter to Receive.

The engine produces a track for each track specified by the Input parameter. For example, if you set Input=FaceDetect.ResultWithSource, the engine produces a track named taskName.FaceDetect.ResultWithSource, where taskName is the name of the Receive ingest task.
