How we measure

SeenThis has developed a methodology for automatically evaluating data reduction for both video and static ads based on campaign-specific data. For video ads, a statistically significant regression model has been developed for predicting data reduction from SeenThis Adaptive Streaming Technology, trained on hundreds of campaigns.

The model is based on a multitude of parameters related to the creative itself, its quality, the delivery of the creative, and CDN caching.


SeenThis provides different alternatives for reporting, depending on which method is used.
The Emissions dashboards, the Emissions Calculator and A/B tests are all ways of helping our clients understand their saved emissions on digital ad campaigns.
