Delivery Reports are available as a sub-section on the Reports tab in Video Central, available to both studio partners and digital aggregators (e.g., posthouses, Language Service Providers) that fulfill on behalf of a studio.
This section provides downloadable reports on historical delivery performance, along with visualizations to identify trends and recurring delivery defects. Delivery Reports enables you to evaluate delivery performance for different categories of content and identify improvement opportunities, aiming to answer three questions:
The Delivery Success Rate report shows how frequently your content is delivered successfully. The data can be filtered on multiple attributes, including the file type and the entity managing deliveries. This report is supported by the Delivery Success Rate chart at the top of the page, a visualization that allows you to filter by date range, territory, delivering entity, and file type.
The Error Summary report shows error codes sorted on the frequency of their occurrence, enabling you to focus on fixing the top repeated errors. This report is supported by the Top 10 Errors table, which identifies the biggest opportunity areas for your supply chain. As a studio, this section will give you insights into recurring delivery errors introduced by any third-parties who fulfill for you. As a posthouse, this table will display recurring delivery errors that you have introduced for your studio clients.
The Error Log report shows the log of file deliveries with errors, enabling you to verify any specific data point. This report allows you to dive deep into the data underlying either the Delivery Success Rate or Top 10 Errors visualizations.
Amazon shows that a file has been successful or a failure after validation. If you delivered an asset file (video, audio, timed text, captions, dubbed audio) that requires an asset manifest for it to be validated, it won't appear in your Delivery Reports until the asset manifest is also delivered.
