IoT Solution Application
VidiReports Pro for Automated Audience & Attention Analytics
VidiReports Pro estimates the aggregate footfall while counting exactly how many people have actually looked at the screen. It provides the dwell time, attention time and demographics of the audience, determines the gender with a 90% precision, and classifies the viewer’s age in four categories (child, young adult, adult, or senior).
VidiCenter for Online Data Management
Built on a scalable architecture, VidiCenter securely gathers audience and attention data. It combines a Charts module—to plot a rich set of KPIs across demographic groups, time, locations, and contents in easy-to-use dashboards—as well as a Management module—to organize a fleet of sensors across locations and sites, spot and resolve alerts, and manage users and rights.
PowerDigiS for Content Management
With viewer demographics data, PowerDigiS enables viewer interaction by displaying message tailored to the interest of a target audience group. To amplify message delivery, retailors can create visually stunning effects with multi-zone layouts, rich content formats, and video wall configurations which are all supported by PowerDigiS. Remote management is also supported to facilitate content update and scheduling.
