Video has become a go-to medium and new data type used for a wide range of use cases within any organization, including for communication and collaboration, teaching and learning, customer experience, and human capital management. A challenge posed, however, is that along with the growth of video creation and consumption, organizations need more sophisticated tools to both manage and understand the role video plays in helping organizations achieve their objectives. Understanding of users’ engagement with content goes far beyond plays and drop-offs. Deeper data such as whether the video was viewed in full screen, whether the viewer focused on slides or the speaker, what language was selected for captions, and much more, enhances our understanding of each viewer’s experience and needs. It enables content creators to optimize their content for their audience. With this richness of data, the need for insights that can drive actions becomes critical. Kaltura offers a unique score for videos and contributors, enabling admins to consistently compare different types of content. Tools such as trend analysis and comparison of time periods enables a deeper understanding of seasonality, adoption, and drivers for engagement. With clear dashboards that provide guidance and actionable insights, admins can drive adoption and increase ROI across every use case.
“Video is a unique data type in that it has deep engagement indicators for measurement, both around video creation – what types of content are being created by whom, as well as around video consumption and engagement with content – what languages were selected for subtitles, what hot-spots were clicked upon in video. Analytics is a very strategic area for our customers. Both for tech companies who are building on our VPaaS, as well as for large organizations and universities that use our video products for learning, communication, collaboration, knowledge management, marketing and sales.” said Dr. Michal Tsur, President & General Manager of Enterprise and Learning at Kaltura.
