Proof of Play Settings

Each Display can collect information on what they have shown and provide Proof of Play reports by:

  • Layout - this will show all instances of the selected Layout being shown.
  • Media - this will show all instances of the selected Media file being shown.
  • Widget - this will give a report on that one selected Widget contained within a Layout. (This also includes Widgets that do not contain Library media files, such as Text).
  • Event - If the Player supports collection from external sensors, Event stats will be recorded and shown in Reports.

Enable Default Settings

Navigate to the Settings page under the Administration section of the CMS menu and click on the Displays tab.

Aggregation level

Set the level of collection of Proof of Play statistics to be applied to all Layouts / Media and Widget items as default.

  • Individual - statistics are collected when specified by default.
  • Hourly - statistics will be collected hourly by default.
  • Daily - statistics will be collected daily by default.

Players aggregate ‘completed records’ only, with collection made at the end of the Widgets duration so if a Widget has a duration of 3 hours, the stat will be recorded once the Widget has expired.

This can be toggled on/off by editing Display Setting Profiles.
