Revolutionising Emotional Analysis with Split Second Research's Video Analysis Platform

Split Second Research’s IMPULSE platform is a revolutionary moment-by-moment testing tool that offers a unique and in-depth analysis of emotional reactions to audio-visual content. The platform is specifically designed for analysing various forms of market research content, including TV and radio advertisements, movie trailers, programme excerpts, online videos, promotional videos, training videos, political speeches, and more.

IMPULSE captures the audience’s moment-to-moment emotional reactions to the content, providing researchers with detailed insights into how each scene is perceived emotionally. The tool can read up to six different emotions during the same test, making it an invaluable tool for understanding how audiences respond to different types of media content.

Capturing Implicit Associations and Emotional Reactions with IMPULSE

One of the key features of IMPULSE is its ability to capture non-conscious associations and reactions. The implicit test is overlaid onto a video or audio track. The respondent’s attention gets captured by key moments in the video, and evokes associations at a subconscious level. This way, the video will speed up or delay the responses in the implicit test. Such faster and slower responses allow us to infer how the respondent felt at each moment when they viewed the content. The test provides an alternative approach to measuring an audience’s emotional response to an audio-visual.

Overall, IMPULSE is a new tool that provides a moment-to-moment analysis of emotional reactions to audio-visual content. By leveraging this tool, researchers can gain a deep understanding of how their target audience perceives and responds to different forms of media content. This information can then be used to inform marketing strategies, improve content development, and increase engagement with target audiences.

The data collected from the IMPULSE market research platform can be easily downloaded in a tabular format, such as an Excel file. This makes it simple for researchers to sort, filter, and analyse the data collected from the different ads evaluated, providing them with a comprehensive understanding of the audience’s emotional responses.

The Excel file includes various metrics, such as the emotional reactions at each moment of the ad, the overall emotional engagement of the audience, and any non-conscious associations or reactions detected during the test. This detailed information enables researchers to identify the strengths and weaknesses of each ad, and make data-driven decisions to optimise future campaigns.

Predicting Why Consumers Buy: Evaluating 5 Key Approaches

Whether developing a new product or launching a new marketing campaign, understanding your customers’ true attitudes is crucial to brand management. The main aim is to make predictions about consumers’ behaviour in the future. So, for example, if we wish to make a change to one of our products, we need to conduct research that will help us predict whether the change will bring about an increase sales, decrease sales, or make no difference to sales. However, it is important to choose the correct way to measure people’s thoughts, emotions, or gut-instincts towards your brand, depending on what you’d like to achieve.

There are five recognised ways to measure attitudes in market research.
