Cincopa has powerful video analytics tools that allow the user to track the viewer’s engagement with content in order to differentiate between curious viewers and potential leads.
On video analytics, you can see where video views came from, how your audience interacted with the video content, and view detailed statistics for each video asset.
On a video hosting platform like Cincopa, every video view generates a video heatmap that shows a second-by-second breakdown of the viewer’s engagement on the video asset.
The video heatmap contains unique viewer information, and contextual information such as where and when the video was watched. We have also included a color-coded timeline on Cincopa’s video heatmap showing the viewers interaction with the video.
The Cincopa ‘Video Analytics’ dashboard shows aggregate video stats within a selected timeframe. For your convenience, the video analytics data is presented in a graph and can be exported for use in other programs or archived for later use.

Common Questions about Video Analytics
Question 1: I would like to be able to see how many views each episode of my podcast gets so I can learn which videos are the most popular and gauge how much I can charge for sponsorships.
How do I acquire this information?
Answer: When you log in to your Cincopa profile, you will have the ability to navigate to the ‘Analytics’ area as displayed in the screenshots below. This will display general information such as view count, average watch length, and viewer engagement percentage. You can take this a step further and select the ‘See Heatmap’ option as displayed in the second screenshot and this will provide you with in-depth analytical data specific to the selected video.
Question 2: Cincopa video analytics shows that my video has been played on my homepage (www.example.edu).
However, I do not have that gallery/video on that page….so not sure how to interpret.
Answer: In rare cases, the full URL is not available because it is blocked either by the CMS/LMS or by the embed code when using iframe.
In those cases, Cincopa video analytics just shows the domain itself.
