Amazon Rekognition


In This Guide

With Amazon Rekognition, you can quickly associate search terms with images and videos. Editors can then search for and use your media in their own content.


Configuring Amazon Rekognition

To configure Amazon Rekognition:

  1. Click menu > Admin > Sites & Settings.
  2. In the Sites widget, select Global. The Edit Global widget appears.
  3. (Optional) Under Main, expand AWS Rekognition, and in the Region field enter your AWS region. (If you leave this field blank, Brightspot reads the region from a configuration file.)

  4. Under Main, expand AWS Rekognition (Image), and configure the confidence values for image recognition. Generally, higher confidence levels provide more accurate results (fewer false positives) but may miss some matches (more false negatives).

  5. Expand AWS Rekognition (Video), and make the following settings:
    • In the Time Frame Interval (Seconds) field, enter the number of seconds by which Brightspot groups Rekognition’s results. If you leave this field blank, Brightspot groups the results in 60-second intervals.
    • Configure the confidence values for video recognition. Generally, higher confidence levels provide more accurate results (fewer false positives) but may miss some matches (more false negatives).
    • Configure the other fields corresponding to your account settings with AWS.

Result from Amazon Rekognition

When editors search for keywords in the search panel related to the image, Brightspot includes the submitted image or video in the search results. Referring to the previous example, if an editor searches for Cat Manx in the search panel, Brightspot includes the above image in the search results.

If your connection to Amazon Video Rekognition is configured to group results by time frame, Brightspot groups the video recognition results accordingly.
