Description: This article describes the latest enhancements to the Open Beta version of the InnovidXP platform. The InnovidXP platform has an enhanced UI with new metrics, including linear reporting such as reach and frequency by network, or creative, and expanded reporting of digital ad serving with outcomes.

Note: All InnovidXP (Beta) platform articles refer to the Open Beta version of the platform. They may contain information and images that slightly differ from your view.

This article includes all areas applying to InnovidXP-only and InnovidXP + Ad Serving users, including linear metrics.

Analysis Overview

The Analysis functionality in InnovidXP lets you:

  • Visualize your spot, impression, and response data and gain detailed insight into your TV advertising performance.
  • View and analyze your data beyond a traditional table of rows and columns:

Select Analysis on the main menu to view the list of Pivots page:

EnhancedXP Pivots.png

This page lists previously created Pivots, depending on your access level, and you can search for any Pivots you have saved and want to reuse or build a new Pivot.

The Pivot area includes:

  • Predefined Pivots and Charts for viewing details on your data, such as how many responses, the cost per response, etc.
  • Functionality to manipulate the raw data by drilling down into the data, 'slicing and dicing' the view, and saving your Pivots and Charts.

For more information on Pivots and Charts, visit our Help Center and enter “Pivots” in the Search bar.

Building a Pivot

To create a new Pivot:

  1. Select Create New Pivot. This displays the New Pivot page:

    Create New Pivot.png


  2. Select the date range for your Pivot. The date range is in the top right below the main menu.

    Date range.png

This can be a customized date range, or you can select the last active week or the last active four weeks. 

The platform displays a summary of data within this date range to begin building your Pivot, for example, responses, a choice between KPIs, and the number of spots and cost.

Tips for building Pivots

When building a Pivot:

  • We recommend looking at either linear channel or OTT (Connected TV) or publisher and then continuing to dive into performance.
  • You can reset any metrics and include what’s relevant to your analysis. For example, you could select cost impressions to determine how many unique creatives aired. 
  • We advise including at least two KPIs, for example, Response and Confirmation. (It depends on your KPIs, but these are typically the metrics clients choose to activate.)
  • Optionally, select Cost per confirmation to understand where we can find efficiencies within the data you are viewing.

Getting started with campaigns

When you select View All Campaigns or Campaigns on the main menu, the following page is displayed:

Latest campaigns.png

This page shows a list of all current campaigns and works like the classic Campaign View.

NOTE: Adding a new campaign in the Beta Campaign View is not currently possible. Contact your account manager to add a new campaign.

View campaign metrics

Select a campaign from the list or one of the Latest Campaigns from the header widgets.

Viewing a campaign

Each campaign page displays a header area made up of the following dropdowns:

  • Media selector: Lets you switch between Linear, OTT, and unified metrics
  • Outcome selector: Lets you switch between types of outcome, e.g., response

Media Selector

This dropdown enables switching between Linear, OTT, and unified metrics. Unified metrics will only be available for campaigns configured for both Linear and OTT.

Media Selector.png

Outcome Selector

This dropdown is available in the Outcomes pages and changes the type of outcome shown on all charts, widgets, and tables in the user interface. By default, this will have Response selected, including all your response data. 

If this platform has actions configured, the response type in this selector can be changed to update the visible attribution metrics and show the action values instead.

Outcomes.png

Export to Excel

Each chart in the campaign pages has a link to export the chart data to an Excel spreadsheet. When you select the link, an Excel file is generated for that chart and downloaded to your computer.

Linear Outcomes - Summary

Linear Outcomes_Summary.png

 

Linear Outcomes - Summary
Chart/Widget Name Description
Total Response

Incremental responses* are calculated daily at the spot level. Therefore, weighting must also be applied to any sessions that arrive following exposure to multiple impressions.

Upscaling: once incremental responses are calculated, they must be upscaled to provide projections at the population level. To do this, we look at the ratio between the total number of web sessions captured by the pixel and the number of sessions coming from household IP addresses within the full linear viewership panel

If the Probabilistic Spike model is being used and it is detecting more immediate responses than the Impression-based model, responses are topped up accordingly.

*Incremental responses = what is left of exposed group responses when control group baseline sessions (those that would have happened anyway) are removed.



Response Rate The number of attributed responses as a percentage of the number of impressions served.

Cost per Response The cost of each attributed response based on the total cost of the campaign and the total number of responses.

TV Influence

The percentage uplift in the visitor rate* when comparing the exposed group with the control group.

*Visitor rate = number of individual households



Frequency and Reach Across Households

This chart shows the following:

  • The frequency distribution of the campaign: percentage of households exposed once, twice, etc.
  • Effective Frequency Range: the frequency range within which n+1 exposure results in a significant increase in the visitor rate

Cumulative Impression Delivery Over Time

This chart shows reach and frequency over time and indicates how quickly you can reach an effective audience.

  • Effective Frequency Range: the frequency range within which n+1 exposure results in a significant increase in the visitor rate
  • Avg Impressions Reached per HH: cumulative average frequency
  • HH reached: the cumulative sum of households exposed to at least one impression

Total Response Over Time

Responses over time are broken down according to the date the session occurred. The light blue bar represents sessions attributed on that day, linked to an impression served that day. The dark blue bar represents sessions attributed on that day, linked to an impression served before that day, within the campaign period.

A session must occur within the attribution window (usually seven days) to be linked to an impression as a view-through. Therefore, the blue bar is made of responses to impressions served within the past seven days.

A single session could be split between the light blue and dark blue bars if the household was exposed to both impressions on that day and before that day.

Recency Effects for Response

The response rate split by the number of days after the impression was served.

Same-day and Longer-term all response

(Features the top 10 networks and creatives)

  • Network: attributed response split by network.

    • Immediate Response: The purple bar represents the percentage of response within the first ten minutes of the ad run, determined by the Probabilistic Spike model.

    • Same-day all response: The dark blue bar represents the percentage of response on that day, linked to an impression served that same day but outside the Immediate Response and Spike.

    • Longer-term all response: The light blue bar represents the percentage of response on that day, linked to an impression served prior to that day.
