What does Realeyes measure?

Realeyes measures attention, emotions and sentiment.

1. Attention

The attention metric shows at which point your audience attention rises and falls whilst viewing your content. Attention is measured on volume and quality.

2. Emotions

Emotions are tracked with the help of the Realeyes Facial Action Coding System (FACS) used by Paul Ekman to categorise human facial movements.

Facial expressions are broken down into the individual Action Units that make up a specific expression over time. The output of your collected audience emotions is aggregated and displayed within the dashboard as six basic emotion metrics and three proprietary metrics for measuring the emotional experience.

The six basic emotions are: happiness, surprise, confusion, sadness, disgust, scared.

In addition to these basic emotion metrics, Realeyes also tracks a variety of proprietary metrics or classifiers.

These classifiers have been derived through their own research and are:

Engagement – when a participant has an expressive reaction to a stimulus.

Valence – whether a reaction is positive or negative.

Negativity – the percentage of people showing an emotion classified as negative.

3. Sentiment

With the sentiment analysis you can discover how audiences feel about your brand and content, expressed in their own words. Sentiment Analysis uses AI to analyse open ended consumer comments to identify the prevailing emotional opinion within the text, determining whether the overall sentiment is positive, negative, or neutral.
