Impression Reporting

Underneath the screen information is the Impression Reporting pane. An 'impression' is a single time media has played on a screen. If the selected screen has only recently been assigned a channel, this section will initially be empty as playback statistics need to be gathered first.

Once the screen has been assigned a channel to play, the impression information will build over time. Select a start and end date & time to query, and the bar graph will dynamically display hours, days, months or years based on the range.

Screen Impressions

Each individual media item set to play on the screen will appear as a different colour on the bars. Hover over any section to view detailed information relating to playback within that time period:

  • Total Impressions - The total amount of times the content has played.
  • Seconds Total - The total amount of seconds the content has played for.
  • Share of Voice - The total percentage of time this content has played for in relation to other media set to play on the screen.

Click the 'Export' button to download a .csv file with all of the impression information for the selected time period.
