Genius Digital launches its Offline Viewing Analytics Product for Operators and Broadcasters

Date: 02/02/2017

Genius Digital, the experts in audience analytics, has today announced the official launch of its brand new Offline Viewing Analytics product. The new product is designed to help operators understand how their subscribers are viewing downloaded and offline content, and how offline viewing fits into the wider consumption profile of subscribers. 

Todays launch follows hot on the heels of the recent announcement from Netflix, which recently launched offline viewing functionality for its subscribers - allowing them to download content to their smart devices and watch without the need to connect to the Internet. 

With 1 in 6 UK consumers now already watching TV in places outside of the home: knowing how subscribers consume offline content is vital for broadcasters to optimize services and monetize their consumers. For some operators, offline viewing is a paid value-added service, and as such has real financial value attached to it.  To understand how consumers are using this effectively, operators can harness the insights from Offline Viewing Analytics to understand how much content a subscriber has downloaded, what content they have actually watched, and importantly, how this fits into the general pattern of viewing.

It is straightforward for operators to understand how many assets are downloaded via their content delivery network (CDN) logs, but this data typically does not show what content was viewed, and does not show whether the subscriber has even watched the content or not after it has been downloaded. Though server-side solutions such as Google Analytics can provide a picture of what people are viewing, it does not distinguish between streams and downloads. Offline Viewing Analytics bridges this gap, and brings these two different types of analytics capabilities together.

The new Genius Digital product tracks viewing events that have been stored locally while the subscriber is viewing offline. Operators can then track multiple download and viewing sessions at the same time, and distinguish between the two. It means, for example, that when a subscriber is downloading five different files and streaming a sixth, operators can understand the difference between these types of consumption. 

For operators, providing offline viewing helps them to fulfil the promise of anytime, anywhere viewing for their subscribers. However, if their analytics systems are not engineered to track this viewing, operators risk having a large blind spot in their understanding of how their multiscreen services are consumed. said Tom Weiss, CEO of Genius Digital. 

Our Offline Viewing Analytics product provides operators with a detailed understanding of how their subscribers are viewing downloaded and offline content, and how their offline viewing can inform decision making and wider business goals. 

The insights provided by Offline Viewing Analytics can improve decision-making across an operators business in a number of ways:

       Acquisition and rights: Identify content types where it is worthwhile to pay a premium for download rights; understand where content is downloaded and not watched, or not downloaded at all

       User interfaces: Make better decisions around download prominence within the user interface of a multiscreen services

       Content marketing: Which content to use to promote offline viewing functionality

       Subscriber marketing: Understand the best part of your subscriber base to market offline viewing functionality

       Pricing: Understand whether to charge a premium for offline vieiwng functionality, or whether to include as part of the package

       Retention: Use offline viewing functionality as an offer to help retain customers at risk of churning

       Windowing: Make decisions around whether to extend the window of time that in which a download can be viewed

       Research: Help to complete a holistic picture of how subscribers are using a Pay TV service.

Vitec Production Solutions at the BSC Expo
Making its official debut at the BSC Expo will be the all-new dual-battery bracket, which enables users to power a Gemini panel with two industry-standard 14.4V broadcast camera batteries mounted directly to the yoke or light stand. With its extremely lightweight and on-board, ballast-free power supply, Gemini has always been easy to transport and rig at on-location shoots. Now it's even more practical in situations where portable power is preferred over mains power, including a broad range of ENG and ENP applications. Unlike competing LED panels, which can only generate 50 percent of their maximum output when battery-powered, Gemini can operate at up to 100 percent intensity running from mains and battery power alike.
