  • Engagement (rate): The first click by the user to the iRoll unit and then divided by all the impressions served. This can either be an interactive slate open event, or click-thru depending on the format of the unit. The event is counted once per impression.
  • Time Earned: The average time in seconds a user spends interacting with the unit while the pre-roll video is automatically paused in the background. Note, iRoll Apps units do not consistently require the pausing of the pre-roll video in the background, and therefore may not generate the Time Earned metric.

  • Ad Viewed (percent): The average duration of the pre-roll video watched by users, calculated as a percentage.
