Quortex I/O gives you the ability to measure the success of your streams, in terms of number of views or number of viewers. This does not require any player side integration: it truly works with any device used to watch your stream. Just publish your streams, we take care of everything else.

Overview
The overview panel is made of 4 different quadrants. This panel gives you a quick view of the pool audience, plus a view of the audience evolution over a given time period.
By default, the period is set to "Yesterday", compared to the day before yesterday.



A view is counted when at least 15 uninterrupted seconds of stream has been fetched for a viewing session, i.e. by a single {IP address + User Agent}.

Total delivered duration is the total number of minutes delivered by the platform during the selected reference period. The delta, depicted in blue as a percentage, is computed between the total number of minutes delivered during the reference period vs during the comparison period.
Total views is the total number of views during the selected reference period. The delta, depicted in blue as a percentage, is computed between the total number of views during the reference period vs the comparison period.
Peak hour is the hour, and number of views, when the max number of views in an hour has been reached, during the selected reference period. The delta, depicted in blue as as a percentage, is computed between the number of views during the peak registered in the reference period vs the peak registered in the comparison period. The peak hours can be different between the reference and comparison periods.
Unique viewers IPs is the number of unique {IP address + User Agent} initiating a view, registered during the selected period. The delta, depicted in blue as a percentage, is computed between the number of unique viewer IPs registered during the reference period vs the comparison period.

Being fully server side based, we rely on the IP and User Agent of the receiving device. It means that some users may not be properly counted (typically, when several users are reading the same publishing point behind a NAT, with the exact same device version). The real number of users can never be lower than we report.

History

By clicking on "History", you can analyze the evolution of these data over time; you can also filter and breakdown this data.

Time Period and bar width
You can select the time period you want to explore with the upper left widget. This period applies to all the graphics of the page. You cal also select the accumulation period (i.e. the width of the bar) on each graph (the control will appear when hovering on the graph)



Filtering
The "Show only" field is a magical text input where you can enter the criterion that will apply to filter the data your are looking at. We say its "magical", because it mixes any type of criteria: country, publishing point, input, etc. It is very intuitive and can be used to select, for instance, the number of Belgian viewers watching Kenny TV.



Breakdown
On the right side, you will find a view that allows you to breakdown a given point in time. The breakdown can be made with the same criteria as the filtering. To enable breakdown, you just have to click on a given point and select the breakdown criteria.



The audience statistics are per pool, and are lost if the pool is deleted. You may want to save the data through API on the delivery part of the Analytics API
