Fall is here and so is our fifth Rev product release in 2016! The October Rev release includes a major upgrade to our analytics reporting and dashboard feature, as well as other enhancements to our administrative features for bulk editing and deleting videos, content publishing and expiration.
Enhanced Video Analytics Reporting and Dashboards
At VBrick, we understand the importance of analytics tools to provide you the insight you need to maximize your organization’s video experience. Whether it is tracking metrics to measure user engagement or the overall quality of the video experience, we want to make sure that you have all the necessary information at your fingertips to manage your live and on-demand video initiatives as efficiently as possible.
With the October release, the webcast reports have received a major upgrade with the addition of a Quality of Experience dashboard. These analytics help IT administrators understand the quality of the stream that users are experiencing. This data is collected by the Rev video player to help understand the “last mile” analytics. Data points include averages for bit rate, bandwidth, and buffering duration. In addition, Rev QOE analytics also track the number of buffering and multicast failover events by zone, as well as video player type and video stream type are provided. The zone breakdowns give IT admins the ability to look at streaming performance by the various sections of their internal network.
We’ve also enhanced Rev dashboards for live and on-demand engagement analytics with a new design. Engagement metrics help you understand how your viewers interact with each video asset. The graphical dashboard enhancements now make it even easier than ever to clearly see important performance metrics that will help you deliver the best possible experience to your end users.
Administrative Editing and Publishing Enhancements
Administrators will be very excited about Rev’s new, time-saving video asset management features that will simplify editing, publishing, and deleting videos.
- Bulk Video Edit and Delete
Administrators can now save time by bulk editing video settings and metadata when edits must be made to multiple videos at once. Bulk edit capabilities include status, access control, categories and tags, as well as enabling downloads, comments, and ratings or custom fields. Administrators can now also delete videos in bulk.
Administrators can specify a publish date for a video and it will automatically become active on the publish date that is selected. This will come in handy when you don’t want to publish immediately.
- Delete Option for Expiration
In our last release, we added the ability to specify an expiration date that automatically makes a video unavailable for viewing. In this release, you may also set that video to automatically be deleted upon expiration.
