Akamai Android & iOS Ad Data Points
Check out our enhanced list of advertising events, metadata and timing data points related to pre-roll, mid & post-roll advertisements on the Akamai AMP for Android & iOS video players.
Akamai Android v9 Support
Verified SDK Collector support for the latest version of Akamai AMP on Android v.9.x.x
JWPlayer & HTML5 - Player SDK Separation
Enhanced capabilities in the JWPlayer and HTML5 Collector SDKs allow for customers to separate the loading of the SDK from the instantiation of the video player. Now you can fire custom events after the SDK has loaded and before the video player is loaded. This will allow session variables and other page metadata to persist across early custom events and the events that are fired once the player loads.
Playback Complete 95 Event
Introducing a new event to the Datazoom Data Dictionary. Sometimes you want to count a video play as complete even if a user skips that last portion of the video. Playback_Complete_95 event will be fired when the user hits the 95% mark of the video. By utilizing Datazoom's flexible data point selection feature in the Management Console you can choose how you'd like to track Playback Complete event. As of this release this event is supported on Akamai AMP for Web, Android & iOS. We will incorporate this event in other Collectors over the coming weeks.
Ad Loaded Event
Another new event for the Datazoom Data Dictionary. Ad_Loaded will fire when the ad content is loaded into the player and ready to begin playback. As of this release this event is supported on Akamai AMP for Web, Android & iOS. We will incorporate this event in other Collectors over the coming weeks.
Datadog - field mapping for reserved fields
Datadog has some declared fields that are handled with special consideration within their environment. We have mapped the corresponding Datazoom metadata fields to their correct location in Datadog so that you can take full advantage of what their platform has to offer. List of fields mapped:
Web Management Console - Grouped Data Point Selection
We're excited to reveal enhancements to the data point selection screen that's used when configuring a data pipe. Data Points are now organized into logical groups that makes the list easier to understand. Plus you can now easily enable or disable entire groups of data points at once. Check it out & let us know what you think.
