Streaming providers are uniquely positioned to tap into the passionate following that live sporting events generate. But the streaming of high-stakes live events must live up to the high standards that viewers demand. In this white paper, we examine why Multi-CDN holds the key to delivering best-in-class live sports streaming experiences and how providers can implement this approach
Ad-based video streaming models are on the rise because of their potential to increase platform revenues and reduce the price of subscriptions. But ads also bring to the table a unique set of challenges. Learn how to leverage an independent end-user ad analytics tool to maximize ad revenue and boost customer retention.
In today’s hyper-competitive video streaming space, ensuring good quality of experience and service is key to remaining in the game and not losing users. From the right analytics tools to what metrics to track, here is how streaming services should measure quality.
A walled garden is an excellent business model because it gathers a lot of value in one place. Users can stay on a single platform for hours, either streaming from one source or moving through different apps. But operators need to leverage the full power of app analytics if they want to make the most of their ecosystem and increase engagement
Churn rate has a ripple effect that touches every part of your business, starting directly with your revenue and reputation. To prevent the loss of revenue and the increase of expenses related to churn, video service providers need complete visibility across video preparation, video distribution, delivery, and quality of experience.
As a telecom operator, you own a good deal of the content delivery infrastructure and can ensure a high quality of service (QoS). But given your users’ high quality expectations, that competitive edge could quickly become a double-edge sword without the proper real-time video analytics solutions in place
Flexible analytics improve operations that rely on data and streamline processes within each of your teams and departments and between the various departments of your business. They also improve relationships throughout your delivery chain, ensuring a premium user experience for your subscribers.
Strategic decision-making for reducing churn starts with user data and endpoint analytics. You have to know how your customers feel about and interact with your platform before you can tailor your offering, increase your revenue, grow your market share, innovate for the right audiences, or scale your business.
While content is still king, the user experience is queen. Both have a big impact on the perceived value of a streaming service and neither can be allowed to fall below satisfactory levels.
Using NPAW’s analytics capabilities as an example, this white paper introduces key areas in which fitness on-demand companies can leverage real-time video analytics technology and measurement techniques to drive performance, address issues, and avoid churn for continued growth.
