About TVision:

TVision measures second-by-second, eyes-on-screen Attention to TV and CTV content and ads. We deploy computer vision technology to passively measure how our opt-in panel of TV viewers watch TV in their living rooms. We go beyond household data to measure TV engagement at the person-level. Our data is used by brands, media sellers and data partners to understand TV viewability and attention, to quantify things like co-viewing, and more accurately value programming and ad spots.
