Video consumption is at an all-time high with over 213 million digital video users in the US in 2016. Consumers will continue to watch what they want, when they want, and how they want. Reuters predicts video will grow 14 times within the next five years and account for 70 percent of mobile network traffic. Whether your company offers streaming services for customers to watch their favorite shows on demand, breaking news segments or detailed product videos, you need the ability to measure and analyze these online behaviors in order to make informed, data-driven decisions.
Adobe’s Video Heartbeat data collection service allows you to compile extensive data on how visitors interact with video content on your site.

During the video playback, frequent ‘heartbeat’ calls are sent to the Video Heartbeat service to measure time played.
