Ooyala, Inc. Key Developments

Ooyala Announces Ooyala IQ

Ooyala announced Ooyala IQ, the first analytics platform to provide a 360-degree view of video performance and audience behavior, including multi-dimensional filtering by device, operating system, browser, country, state, DMA (for U.S.), player or traffic source, all processed in milliseconds and provided in one view. This latest version of Ooyala’s analytics engine maximizes video monetization across all screens through real-time, actionable insights that help providers better understand and target audiences, based on actual usage patterns. Ooyala IQ is laser-focused on revenue optimization. It was conceived and built from the ground up for a world where video is distributed and consumed across a wide variety of devices, reaching audiences wherever they are. Adapting to this new business environment requires much more device-specific, content-specific and ad-specific data and insights in order to run a media business efficiently and profitably. Ooyala IQ meets these needs with no configuration or custom development required, delivering a new level of predictive insights on optimal advertising, content publishing and distribution strategies. Ooyala IQ is designed with an open framework allowing for deeper integration of many business-critical data types, whether from Ooyala or from the broader media ecosystem, that can be used to maximize performance, engagement and revenue. These include ad performance and viewability metrics as well as quality of service metrics used to gauge the overall health of video streams. These data types will be added to Ooyala IQ over the course of the year to further extend its capabilities. Ooyala IQ will be available to select customers within the next 30 days, and will be showcased at next week’s National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) exhibition in Las Vegas (Exhibit #SV1000). Major broadcasters and publishers around the world participating in the beta program for Ooyala IQ include Sky Sports, Media Prima, Fairfax Media, Telegraph Media Group, Telstra, Vox Media, Complex Media, Dell, Southern Cross Austereo and many more.
