Announcing Kaltura Live Streaming Analytics

Kaltura Live Streaming Analytics is a management tool that provides powerful information about live streams captured within the KMC (Kaltura Management Console) environment. Our goal is to provide customers with the ability to make informed, real-time decisions through interactive dashboards and deep user experience analytics. With real-time and historical information about live sessions activities and quality metrics, Live Analytics gives helpdesk personnel, IT staff, and senior leadership the resources they need to understand utilization, identify and solve problems, and make informed decisions.

Live Content Reporting
Reports created from the dashboard are tailored to one of three different entry types, guaranteeing the information you need is available when you need it. We provide the metrics needed to make it possible to understand the audience experience in the moment. From size of audience and average stream bitrate o geographic-based information, we give you the information you need to maximize your user experience. Reports can also be created on the Partner ID level or Entry ID level and exported to CSV at any time for custom data processing.
How to Activate Live Analytics
If you have the Kaltura Live or Live Plus feature enabled, the new Live Analytics console will become available in your Kaltura Management Console as of now.  Please note that the new console only works with the latest version of the Kaltura player. To upgrade your player, simply go to the “Studio” tab within the KMC and press the “Upgrade” button. A dialog will be presented confirming the player upgrade. Once the player is upgraded, live analytics will be enabled by default and you should see live reports in the console when using this player.
These capabilities will be available alongside existing functionality and in no way will disable or remove any existing workflows.
