Comscore Ad Metrix

Ad Metrix is well suited for teams that are directly tied to sales teams as well as teams that use DMP and other platforms to help target and retarget specific users for ads or site visits/views.
It may not be as useful if the organization is not targeting specific users or isn't interested in their consumption habits and what competitors are focusing on.

JW Player has flexible plans that won't cost you a lot of money. If you are a startup, JW offers a variety of plans that will suit your specific needs and grow with you as your company grows. You do not need to be a video expert to understand how to upload a video, which allows nearly anyone in the office to do it.

Pros

Comscore Ad Metrix

  • Site Analytics data - ComScore puts all of the stats you need in an easy to read dashboard. I don't need to search around like I do in Google Analytics to find out who is visiting my client's site, where they are browsing, how long they are engaging with the content. It's also really easy to integrate conversion data alongside website analytics. The webpage heat maps are also an awesome way to look at where people are engaging with the client's webpages.
  • Infographics, charts - I love how easy it is to pull a client ready chart that I can insert into a presentation for the client to show various stats pertaining to their campaigns (e.g. most visited pages, most viewed videos, MoM stats on orders/revenue/average order value.
  • Report Builder - Makes it simple to pull reports on site analytics that I can easily add filters to. I can get all the data I need in one report. I do a lot of presentation building for the clients on a monthly basis. This makes it more efficient for me to pull out sharable insights.

Cons

Comscore Ad Metrix

  • Deeper measurement in mobile, social and SVOD/OTT
  • Major networks are not included (e.g. Turn DMP)
  • Reach/frequency tool only allows for input of demo guarantee targeting

JW Player

  • Definitely missing the ability (in and easy way) to have clickable links in the video.
  • Analytics is a little cumbersome and not very user-friendly.

Just made the decision to renew given demonstrated improvements being made to the platform to expand compatibility for its player use on devices such as Apple TV, as well as improvements made recently to its JW Platform Dashboard

Reliability and compatibility on a majority of platforms. Would have received a 10 except recent versions of browsers such as Firefox are now defaulting against Flash components and thus prompting approval from users BEFORE loading which is a HUGE obstacle to an effective user experience thus creating concerns by end-users unnecessarily and risking that they will NOT accept the prompts, thus leaving unable to view video content hosted using the JW Player. Assurances by JW support suggest they will resolve this, so we'll see...

The staff is available pretty quickly for questions, but are not really around in-person to meet with me and my team. They are able to solve my problems online and do work sessions as needed via skype.

Support is reasonable. I from time to time have made suggestions on improvements that would be nice to see (like the ability to have a clickable link within the video - that is easy to create, without tons of coding) and it seems as though I never see it happen or get much response to "suggestions" to upgrade the software. The good news, other than a few things as I mentioned above, overall, I don't have many "technical issues" in the platform, which is a good thing. On occasion, I have seen some "issues" with the delivery of the video, but it has been pretty scarce. So it is dependable.

One of the primary features promoted by JW Platform is its SEO definition. However, there did not seem to be a way to integrate that data to our platform if selected thus only leaving the benefits of that data to be established on the individual video page hosted by JW Platform, which isn't useful in the end to the client value we are trying to deliver for our VideoproFile.net solution

Alternatives Considered

Comscore Ad Metrix

They're both fairly similar in relaying data for us on our viewers. We've used comScore longer and are able to compare specific data to one another as well as competitor sites

JW Player

JW had more player options, a better/more intuitive user interface, was altogether faster both in rendering the uploaded videos and in time to load on the web page. The integration with OpenX for pre-roll was faster and easier than with Brightcove, and lastly, they offered a great price for service.

Return on Investment

Comscore Ad Metrix

  • I have not used the tool long enough to determine myself, but my understanding is the team has been able to drive growth and sales significantly through the use of the tool.

JW Player

  • JW Player has was less expensive (without sacrificing quality) than our previous video platform so the ROI was instant.
  • We were easily able to add a variety of video advertising options including pre-roll, mid-roll and post-roll.
  • The quality and consistancy of the look of the video has enabled us to grow our video views by well over 100% since starting with JW.
