Statistics

Introduction

The Media Manager's has in-depth statistics will help you visualize and optimize the performance of your video and audio content across all of your On Demand and Live streams. Customize filters, review activity over the lifetime of the property and analyze views, bandwidth, and device type all in one area.

This section is dedicated to displaying the performance of your On Demand and live video and audio streams and is separated into three tabs:

  • Summary
  • Audience
  • Traffic

Across these 3 sections you will see that Views are a major part of how statistics for VOD, AOD and Live streaming are tracked and they are essential in knowing how content is working across your property. Views on our platform are defined accordingly:

  • VOD & AOD:
    • 1 view = 1 playthrough
  • Live Streaming:
    • 1 View = 1 playthrough.
      Tips: Only in Live Streaming: If the final user presses play on your live stream and then presses pause and after presses play again, this can count as 2 views.
  • DVR:
    • 1 view = 1 Playthrough
