New Offering Helps Studios and Streaming Platforms Better Understand Market Demand for A Movie Title and Make More Strategic Marketing, Distribution and Merchandising Decisions
LOS ANGELES, September 30, 2020 – Whip Media Group, today announced the availability of a new movie analytics solution which provides key consumer data insights to media companies as they are shifting releases from theatrical to premium on-demand-platforms.
With production slowing and theatrical distribution in flux, more viewing is taking place on digital platforms. The new CVM (Content Value Management) Insights for movies monitors spikes in audience interest and consumption to help clients adapt their windowing, marketing and distribution strategies.
CVM Insights for movies tracks audiences’ intent to view titles before they are released to predict whether movie titles will break through in a crowded landscape. CVM Insights also provides audience intelligence into library titles, including audience demographics, device usage and activity on cross-title viewership.
“Movie consumption behavior across theatres and streaming platforms was converging even before the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Carol Hanley, Chief Revenue and Strategy Officer for Whip Media Group. “Now as theatrical windows are closing, understanding consumers interest in a given title across the movie’s entire lifecycle, from pre-release to SVOD distribution, to determine how a movie will ultimately perform, makes CVM Insights movie data a central component to decision making.”
The CVM Insights for movies is updated with analytics including:
- Anticipation – Tracks pre-release intent to view a movie to determine which movies are highly anticipated by fans and likely to perform well, and how that varies by demography
- Affinity – Measures the similarity of content based on audience tastes and preferences to provide an overview of which competitive or similar movies fans are also watching
- Engagement and Emotional Response – Informs how users are reacting to a movie title, from favorite characters, emotional response or key reactions to tailor marketing campaigns or acquisition decisions
TV Time, the source of the data behind the CVM Insights movie offering, is the world’s largest content tracking platform, with a global community of 15 million users who have reported more than 17 billion views of TV and movie content across 230,000 titles. TV Time tracks users who follow a movie in advance of its original release date, and combined with machine learning, leverages that signal into prospective audience’s demographics, viewing habits, watch history, and motivations.
