How Reporting Data is Collected
Data Sources: Data collected in real-time within the Ensemble Video Web application is the data source for the following reports: Content Activity, Asset Storage, Media Storage, System Activity, and Users reports. The Ensemble Video player provides updates as users play, seek and pause, and these are the data source for the following reports: Content Popularity, Content Geographical Popularity, Browser, Platform, Percentage Viewed, and the Users Viewing Details reports.
- Update Frequency: The data is collected in near real time as users navigate the system and play, seek, pause and stop video viewing.
- Geographic Reporting: Third-party modules are used to convert IP addresses, to identify local geography on a world-wide basis. Not all regions have reliable local geography mapping, so the results may be limited for some areas outside the U.S.
- Duration Reporting: Duration is a record of the time viewed. Percent complete/percent viewed is viewing duration as percent of the duration of the video. If a viewer seeks around and re-watches some portions the video they may actually spend more time watching the video than the duration of the video. In these instances duration viewed is equal to video duration and percent viewed is shown as 100%.
Note: Reporting data is only saved for 365 days fur cloud-hosted SaaS Ensemble Video customers, and it is the default for Self-hosted Ensemble Video implementations. For self-hosted customers who want to extend this time, an admin must go into the Service Configuration file. There is an “<add key="ReportingTruncateIntervalInDays" value="365"/>” entry. Just change the value to number of days you want to keep reporting data for and restart the Ensemble Video Windows service.
