Quividi’s anonymous video analytics (AVA) platform counts and qualifies digital out-of-home audiences in real time via video sensors installed in digital displays.
The Paris-based company calls itself “the only Anonymous Video Analytics technology with a 10-year track record across tens of thousands of points.” Quividi software runs on signage players, iOT devices, servers, with most video sensors and under most operating systems.
I recently chatted with Ke-Quang Nguyen-Phuc, Quividi’s CEO about his company.
Mark Braff: Tell us about your Anonymous Video Analytics (AVA) platform. What types of information does it gather?
Ke-Quang Nguyen-Phuc: Quividi’s AVA platform accurately counts and qualifies audiences in real time.
For any communication running on a Quividi-equipped screen, we provide an extensive range of contextual information: gender, age and mood of the viewers as well as the total dwell time while in the field of view of the video sensor, the total attention time (i.e., the time when a person’s face is turned towards the video sensor) and the position and distance from the video sensor.
In addition to the above data, which is collected for each viewer, Quividi produces an estimate of the total footfall in front of the video sensor.
Warrenton, VA – The Digital Signage Federation® (DSF), the independent not-for-profit trade organization serving the digital signage industry, has imtroduced a new membership fee structure. The new fee structure not only recognizes a broader definition of “end users,” now to include brands/advertisers and digital network operators, at its “Tier 1” level, but also incentivizes enrollment by offering a very affordable annual membership fee of just one hundred dollars ($100US).
“Tier 2” now extends the same $250 annual fee currently applied solely to industry consultants. However, integrators will now join the DSF at the “Tier 3” rate, the same annual fee of $500 required formerly from only industry vendors and suppliers.
Tier 1 – End Users, Brands/Advertisers, and Network Operators – $100/year per organization
Tier 2 – Consultants – $250/year per organization
Tier 3 – Vendors, Suppliers, and Integrators – $500/year per organization
