StoreStream Metrics and Quividi announce they have formed a strategic partnership in North American to help digital media network owners and/or operators bring quantitative intelligence and analysis to maximize or optimize the media value of their digital communication strategies. Jointly, they will offer a platform and a methodology to analyze human behavior in front of out-of-home displays and to fine-tune the efficacy of the associate communication strategy.
Quividi, the leading international audience measurement company with over 60 customers in 20 countries worldwide, provides a software solution that uses video analytics to count and qualify viewers with respect to a point of interest (such as screens, posters, end caps, windows, etc.). Easy to deploy and sporting extremely fast reactivity, Quividi’s solution delivers the key metrics needed to assess the real impact of communication vehicles; metrics include the number of opportunities to see, the number of actual viewers, their dwell time, attention time, and optionally their gender and age class. Quividi’s back-office offers a robust data mining platform, easily customizable to aggregate and display the metrics at various levels of detail and over specific periods of time; over 160 million audience events coming from over 400 sites are currently accessed and used by Quividi’s customers on the platform.
