Sources

Each frame contains sources, a list of dictionaries containing:

  • Attributes of the source data (image raw data)
  • A URI pointing to the source data (image or video)
  • Sources for masks used in semantic segmentation
  • Image previews, which are thumbnails used in the ClearML Enterprise WebApp (UI).

sources does not contain:

  • rois even though ROIs are directly associated with the images and masks in sources
  • ROI metadata, because ROIs can be used over multiple frames.

Instead, frames contain a top-level rois array, which is a list of ROI dictionaries, where each dictionary contains a list of source IDs. Those IDs connect sources to ROIs.

Examples#

The examples below demonstrate the sources section of a Frame for different types of content.

Example 1: Video Sources#

This example demonstrates sources for video.

Example 1
/* video from one of four cameras on car */
"sources": [
{
"id": "front",
"content_type": "video/mp4",
"width": 800,
"height": 600,
"uri": "https://s3.amazonaws.com/my_cars/car_1/front.mp4",
"timestamp": 1234567889,
"meta" :{
"angle":45,
"fov":129
},
},
{
"id": "rear",
"uri": "https://s3.amazonaws.com/my_cars/car_1/rear.mp4",
"content_type": "video/mp4",
"timestamp": 1234567889
}

The sources example above details a video from a car that has two cameras. One camera is the source with the ID front and the other is the source with the ID rear.

sources includes the following information about the Frame:

  • content_type - The video is an mp4 file
  • width and height - Each frame in the video is 800 pixels by 600 pixels,
  • uri - The raw data is located in s3.amazonaws.com/my_cars/car_1/front.mp4 and s3.amazonaws.com/my_cars/car_1/rear.mp4 (the front and rear camera, respectively)
  • timestamp - This indicates the absolute position of the frame in the video
  • meta - Additional metadata is included for the angle of the camera (angle) and its field of vision (fov).
note

Sources includes a variety of content types. This example shows mp4 video.

Example 2: Images Sources#

This example demonstrates sources images.

Example 2
/* camera images */
"sources": [
{
"id": "default",
"content_type": "png",
"width": 800,
"height": 600,
"uri": "https://s3.amazonaws.com/my_images/imag1000.png",
"timestamp": 0,
}

The sources of this frame contains the following information:

  • content_type - This frame contains an image in png format.
  • width and height - It is 800 px by 600 px,
  • uri - The raw data is located in https://s3.amazonaws.com/my_images/imag1000.png
  • timestamp is 0 (timestamps are used for video).

Example 3: Sources and Regions of Interest#

This example demonstrates sources for video, masks, and preview.

Example 3
{
"timestamp": 1234567889,
"context_id": "car_1",
"meta": {
"velocity": "60"
},
"sources": [
{
"id": "front",
"content_type": "video/mp4",
"width": 800,
"height": 600,
"uri": "https://s3.amazonaws.com/my_cars/car_1/front.mp4",
"timestamp": 1234567889,
"meta" :{
"angle":45,
"fov":129
},
"preview": {
"content_type": "image/jpg",
"uri": "https://s3.amazonaws.com/my_previews/car_1/front_preview.jpg",
"timestamp": 0
},
"masks": [
{
"id": "seg",
"content_type": "video/mp4",
"uri": "https://s3.amazonaws.com/seg_masks/car_1/front_seg.mp4",
"timestamp": 1234567889
},
{
"id": "instances_seg",
"content_type": "video/mp4",
"uri": "https://s3.amazonaws.com/seg_masks/car_1/front_instance_seg.mp4",
"timestamp": 1234567889
}
]
},
{
"id": "rear",
"uri": "https://s3.amazonaws.com/my_cars/car_1/rear.mp4",
"content_type": "video/mp4",
"timestamp": 1234567889
}
],
"rois": [
{
"sources":["front"],
"label": ["right_lane"],
"mask": {
"id": "seg",
"value": [-1, 1, 255]
}
},
{
"sources": ["front"],
"label": ["bike"],
"poly":[30, 50, 50,50, 100,50, 100,100],
"meta": {
"velocity": 5.4
}
},
{
"sources": ["front", "rear"],
"label": ["car"],
"poly":[30, 50, 50,50, 100,50, 100,100]
}
]
}

This frame shows the masks section in sources, and the top-level rois array.

In sources, the masks subsection contains the sources for the two masks associated with the raw data.

The raw mask data is located in:

  • https://s3.amazonaws.com/my_cars/car_1/front.mp4
  • https://s3.amazonaws.com/my_previews/car_1/front_preview.jpg

In rois, the mask section is associated with its masks source using the id key. In this example:

  • In the rois array, there is a region of interest that has a mask with the ID seg and an RGB value
  • The masks section in sources contains the location of each mask. The first dictionary of masks details the mask with the ID seg. The ID connects it to the seg mask in rois

sources also contains the source of a preview. It is located in: https://s3.amazonaws.com/my_previews/car_1/front_preview.jpg.
