Content Playout Reporting
Playout metrics enable digital media network operators to record the proof-of-play of content items within media zones in an application. Recordings can be set to always be captured or set to a scheduled time period. Users can generate a report to display the proof of play between specific time periods.
Enabling Content Playout Recording
Begin by navigating to the Sign Manager extension within Appspace. Choose the desired application to enable playout metrics recording and continue by selecting the Edit tab.
Select one desired media widget that you would like to enable playout metrics recording. In this example, the Media Zone widget is used.
Generating Content Playout Reports
To generate playout reports, access the Reports extension and select the Proof of Play Metrics tab. On the Proof of Play Metrics page, select the desired application in the drop-down box following by the desired content, player(s), and date to generate the report for. Click the Generate Report button to generate and export the report in Excel format.
Content items will only be listed once the player is fully in-sync with the Appspace server.
Your media players will need to have the application running for at least 24 hours before the report data is available.
