Content playout reports


Playout metrics enable digital media network operators to record the proof-of-play of content items within media zones in a sign. 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

  1. Begin by navigating to Signs. Choose the desired sign to enable playout metrics recording and continue by selecting the Edit tab.

  2. Select one desired media widget that you would like to enable playout metrics recording. In this example, the Media Zone widget is used.

  3. Once the Visual Editor is loaded, check the check box next to Playout Metrics located under the PROPERTIES section. Make sure to click Apply when finished to save this change. You may then exit the Visual Editor by clicking close window.

Generating Content Playout Reports

To generate playout reports, access Reports and select the Proof of Play Metrics tab. On the Proof of Play Metrics page, select the desired sign or channel in the drop-down box followed 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 sign running for at least 24 hours before the report data is available.
