Indexing options

Indexing options indicate which types of information within the video will be processed by the video understanding engine. You must specify the indexing options when you create a new index, and you cannot modify them once the index has been created. The following indexing options are available:

  • visual: This option allows you to analyze video content as you would see and hear from it, including actions, objects, sounds, and events, and excluding human speech.
  • conversation: This option allows you to analyze human speech within your videos.
  • text_in_video: This option allows you to detect and extract text (OCR) shown within your videos.
  • logo: This option allows you to identify the presence of brand logos within your videos.



The search options you use when performing a search must be a subset of the indexing options specified when the index was created.
