transcosmos Inc. (Headquarters: Tokyo, Japan; President and COO: Masataka Okuda) has co-developed and released a video ads analysis method “GAZE HACK” with SOOTH Inc. (Headquarters: Tokyo, Japan; Representative Director: Yasutoshi Nukada), the company that owns an original technology for analyzing vital reactions. “GAZE HACK” can track and analyze ads viewers’ eye-gaze. Also, it optimizes the way to make video ads by using the analysis results. Using “GAZE HACK,” clients and video creators can identify the elements of their video ads influence strongly viewers’ psychology, then implement PDCA cycle based on user insights for improvement of video ads performance.
Online video ads expanding growth rapidly in the market, contain more information than the existing ads such as banner ads. In addition, it has higher potential for clients to increase their ads performance including product awareness, purchases, and more. On the other hand, it is harder to analyze the performance of motion creative content since it has massive information. Especially, it is difficult for clients to evaluate whether the products and services are properly communicated to end-users and of which the most influenced specific content for end-users. As a result, many clients face a challenge in applying to PDCA cycle.
“GAZE HACK” describes eye tracking data captured by the special measuring device on videos, and clearly visualizes the elements that viewers gazed at any time. In addition, “GAZE COUNTER” in “GAZE HACK,” a tool that SOOTH developed their advanced image analysis technology, enables to aggregate and scores the ratio of gaze concentration on each element by every 1/30 second. Based on “GAZE HACK,” the creators can optimize their video ads in terms of the layout and display timing of each element. Thereby, they can create video ads that have better “communication.” Moreover, as it has the ability to measure and aggregate viewers’ gaze concentration by their attributes such as gender and age, it enables to create a creative content that fits their target audience, and boost ad performance. The creators can analyze not only their online video ads but also mass advertising including television commercials by “GAZE HACK.”
As a result of “GAZE HACK” for multiple videos used same products and directed by the different creators, transcosmos found that videos with higher gaze concentration ratio on the product had about 2.5 times higher Click Through Rate (below, CTR) than the lower concentration ratio. It shows the significant correlation between gaze concentration ratio and CTR.
