Video Analytics Just Got Better

useability

Content creators are looking for more and more ways to express their ideas and share them with the public. Consequently, video is now the most powerful medium on the B2C and B2B scene. Meanwhile, web publishers are proactively navigating the contemporary digital landscape by relying mostly on video as their primary source of monetization and digital marketing. This is something BridTV is well aware of and we stand behind publishers, fully supporting their business efforts with our latest, groundbreaking video tech. In addition, we have now implemented a brand new analytics engine that massively improves your video data and focuses greatly on useability.

The State of the B2B Online Video Market

Did you know that by 2022, over 82% of all consumer Internet traffic will consist of online videos? That’s 15 times more than how things were during 2017. At the same time, 78% of people watch online videos every week, and 55% view online videos every day. So, it’s pretty obvious that videos aren’t just limited to the entertainment industry. Videos also extend to the B2B market, effectively becoming the main driving force for branding and promotion. It was noted recently that 54% of consumers wish to watch additional videos from a brand/business they support.

Video Analytics: Focusing on Useability

The latest update incorporated into our video tech features a streamlined version of the BridTV Video Analytics, which allows web publishers to gain access to analytics per video, which in turn denotes plays vs impressions, ad requests vs impressions, fill rate (fill rate by ad slot – preroll, midroll, postroll, overlay, banner, etc.). The whole engine gives you a chance to zero in on ad performance and ad opportunities. For example, one of the most valuable stats for video is VCR (Video Completion Rate); this is something that works smoothly with BridTV Video Analytics, thanks to the improved ad-specific metrics that’s now fully integrated into the CMS as you work. This valuable data can also be filtered to check out ad performance on both desktop and mobile.

Segmentation

As you examine vital data in your video analytics, you will be able to locate certain friction points beforehand. Our slick analytics segmentation can help you track ad performance according to specific categories:

  • Tracking Stats & Behavior Per Video – Easily incorporate Brid analytics per video into your custom-tailored metrics, which delivers accurate data and statistics based on the performance and behavior of your video content.
  • Tracking Playlist Performance – BridTV Analytics features analytics data per user created playlist. Extremely precise data per individual playlist is available via Brid.
  • Detailed Analytics Per Player – Apart from providing an excellent and well-optimized analytics overview, which digs deep into all the valuable video data, BridTV Video Analytics also tracks data per video player across your entire network. So, when you create multiple players (Facebook, AMP sidebar, In-content, etc.), just activate BridTV Analytics and watch as the relevant data is extracted from each one of those players.
  • Bandwidth Consumption – Your bandwidth consumption is constantly monitored to make things easier for you. The greatest benefit of this particular feature is saving bandwidth costs drastically.
  • Outstream Performance – Thanks to our updated analytics engine, you now have the option to tweak and re-tweak every single Outstream Unit. Tracking the performance of individual Outstream Units proved to be an extremely valuable feature, one that we highly recommend if you’re looking to properly boost monetization and optimize performance.

Brand New Analytics API
