Media Gauge® TV
A TV audience measurement service that covers about million smart TVs and video recorders across Japan
Viewing log data is collected from million smart TVs and video recorders across Japan each month. This data can be used for area marketing in each prefecture as well as the planning and buying of TV commercials.
Characteristics of Media Gauge TV
Media Gauge TV makes it possible to analyze television exposure rates by prefecture and by municipality
It makes it possible to perform analyses at the prefectural level and municipality level, which had been difficult to do with conventional panel surveys given their sample sizes.
* Based on the collected data, the total televisions throughout Japan are estimated to be the population
You can analyze the television exposure rate every 15 seconds
By comparing this with the meta information* of TV programs and commercials, you will be able to understand details such as the exposure to each commercial and the inflows/outflows for each broadcast scene.
* Separate meta information is necessary. INTAGE can provide this information.
You can also perform analyses on time-shifted viewing
Analyses of time-shifted viewing can also be performed based on the viewing logs collected from recorders throughout Japan.
This allows you to analyze things like trends with real-time viewing and time-shifted viewing by genre and by program.
Data can be linked with BI tools to perform analyses.
You can utilize this by easily linking data with BI tools, CRM tools, and other tools used by your company via INTAGE connect®.
Performing analyses by interlinking commercial placement data, sales data, and more makes it possible to reflect this in policies in a timelier manner.

What is a Smart TV?
Definition of a Smart TV
Smart TVs are conventional TVs with internet functionality. In addition to TV broadcasts such as terrestrial broadcasting and BS/CS satellite broadcasting, users can enjoy on their home TVs video content that has been viewed on PCs and smartphones, such as internet on-demand broadcasts and online videos. In addition, their functionality can be extended by adding applications and they can work with other equipment via home network connections.
Please see below for information about the proliferation of “Smart TVs” whose viewing logs are measured with Media Gauge TV as well as the difference between viewing logs and ratings.
Internet connection rate of Smart TVs
According to the IXT Smart TV Population Survey in March 2018, about one in seven are connected to the internet.
Smart TVs in the future
Of newly purchased TVs, about one in three are connected to the internet, and the number of Smart TVs is growing steadily every year. The ownership rate of Smart TVs is expected to approach the ownership rate of ordinary TVs in the future.
