Media Analytics provides a number of standard dimensions that are based on data that the system inherently gathers from log data and Akamai's EdgeScape service.
Dimension information levels
Before you apply dimensions, you should understand how dimension levels are applied in Media Analytics.
Viewer level. These dimensions refer to a viewer's current session and all future sessions. Dimensions at the viewer level are also available with Visit and Play metrics, whereas metrics at the viewer level are available only with viewer level dimensions. You will have to restrict the number of distinct values per dimension to 5000000.
Visit level. These dimensions refer to viewer playback activity in a certain duration with one or more titles played during a visit. They can also be used with Play metrics.
Play level. These dimensions refer to a single title playback event. Attempts to play back video that resulted in errors are also included. These dimensions can only be used with Play level metrics.
The following standard dimensions are supported:
|ASNUM||Autonomous System Number. This identifies the internet network.|
|CDN||Content Distribution Network. This identifies the CDN used to deliver the content. For example, <>.|
|Connection Speed||The internet connection speed of the viewer.

|Connection Type||The internet connection type. For example, Wi-Fi or cellular.|
|DMA||Designated Market Area.|
|Day of week||Day as per the time zone specified in the Analyzer.|
|Delivery Type||The manner in which media is delivered to the viewer. Available values are:
|Effective Bitrate Buckets||The number of bits rendered on the player. Effective bitrate quantifies the quality of end-user experience.|
|Event Name||Name of the event.|
|Event URL||Stream URL.|
|Format||The format in which the media is delivered.
Available values are:
|Geography||Viewer location. Available granularities are:

|Network||The end-user service provider.|
|OS||The end-user operating system.|
|Player Type||Available values are:

|Startup time Buckets||Total startup time observed for sessions that started in a specific time frame.|
|Stream Name||Name of stream played.|
|Stream Position||Percentage of media played.|
|webpage Referer||URL of the webpage that refers to the page in which the video is embedded.|
