  • Video Machine
      /ag/.AccessGrid/local_services/VideoProducerService/vic "IP Address"/"Port"
  • Audio Machine
      /home/ag/rat -t 127 "IP address"/"Port"


Intructions to start the node command line

  • Run AGServiceManager.py in all the machines. in display machine the service manager is present in
      startmenu > programs> accessgridtoolkit 2.2 > services > service manager
  • Run nodeservice in the display machine.
      startmenu > programs > accessgridtoolkit 2.2 > services > node service
  • From the toolkit run NodeManagement.py in the display machine
      startmenu > programs > accessgridtoolkit 2.2 > configure > node management
  • In the node management from the pull down menu service manager click add, then type the hostname and the port of the display machine.
  • Do the same
      type the hostname and the port of the audio machine.
      type the hostname and the port of the video machine.
  • From the pull down menu services click add.
      add services for the display, audio and the video machine.
  • For the display machine add video consumer service.
  • For the audio machine add the audio service
  • For the video machine depending on the number of cameras add video producer service.
      in our case it is /dev/video0, /dev/video1, /dev/video2
  • Store the configuration as default.
      File > store configuratiion


Instead of running the node management if you wish use a wizard to congigure your AG then you can use node setup wizard


startmenu > programs > accessgridtoolkit 2.2 > configure > node setup wizard.

Points a and b above holds good for this too. Then the wizard will guide you to add the hostname and port number of display, audio and the video machine. The services will also be added for each machine. For the audio machine it is audio producer service. For video the point g above holds good in addition you can select the type of source whether it is s video or composite 1 etc . It should be selected as composite 1.
