Proof of Play
Proof-of-play Report functionality offers you the streaming details of the Assets you play on your display screens, video walls, etc.
One of the most powerful features, it comes with the following key functionalities:
  1. 1.
    Helps track starting and ending timestamps of each asset played.
  2. 2.
    Includes Assets Tags and Screens Tags to create complex aggregated reports.
  3. 3.
    Collects data in real-time or by using the upload interval functionality. It is useful for scenarios where you have devices with limited internet connectivity that performs a drive-by once a week/month to collect data.
  4. 4.
    Filter, Save, and Schedule reports based on your criteria and email them.
  5. 5.
    Export raw data for creating custom reports.

Proof of Play Playback Reports

Configuration

Use this tab to configure how often you want screens to report data, and when you want data extract to be produced for download. By default, screens update data in real time as assets are played. If the internet is disconnected, data will be saved locally and will be synced to the server automatically when the device comes back online. If for some reason, you don't want real-time data (i.e., to reduce network usage during day time, or if you do drive-by data collection once in a while). You can uncheck the Real-time option and select an upload interval of your choice. Once this option is enabled, within a few minutes, all of your screens will start sending back proof-of-play data.
