AnalyticsAnalytics (Proof of Play)

With analytics you can get reports of file playbacks from your screens as proof that the files were actually presented. A playback is recorded every time a file is loaded by your player which then is sent to our analytics server for storage and data aggregation.
To start using analytics, you need to enable analytics for every screen, you can find the setting in the web portal under screen settings section (the option is available for players running version 1.17.0 or greater).
We offer several report types:

  • Asset report
    • Grouped by asset
    • Grouped by screen
    • Detailed
  • Screen report
    • Grouped by asset

This report aggregates all file playbacks over a selected period (up to 3 months) for all your screens giving you total duration and show count for each selected file.

By screen

This report is very similar to the previous, except it also differentiates between screens so you know exactly which screen presented what file and for how long.

FAQ

Which plugin playbacks are reported?

The playbacks are stored for images and videos, playbacks for plugins (such as weather or text) are not stored.

How long is the data stored?

We store the playbacks for 1 year in our servers, that means you can generate reports for playbacks that happened less than a year ago.

What happens if the player loses the Internet connection?

If the player loses the Internet connection, the device will store the playback logs in it’s internal storage. The internal storage however is not limitless, so to keep things safe there is a 10000 entry limit on the internal storage. To give an example, if you have a playlist that shows an image every 10 seconds (6 playbacks per minute), it can store playback history for 27 hours before the internal storage limit is reached. 

I am in a different timezone, are the reports accurate?

All times in the report are adjusted to your timezone. This assumes 2 things though:

  1. Your computer time and time zone are correctly set.
  2. The time and time zone on your player devices are correct.

Why can’t I enable analytics? 

Analytics can be enabled only if you have 2 or more screens linked with your account. Unfortunately we can not extend analytics functionality to our free screen offer as it requires large amounts of storage and processing.
