San Francisco, CALIF. - June 14, 2006 - blinkx, the smartest and largest video search engine on the Web allows users to search over 4,000,000 hours of audio, video and TV through a single search box at www.blinkx.tv.
With just one click, users can explore a collection that is both diverse and deep, covering hours of content from a multitude of sources, including the latest bulletins from Fox News or the BBC, popular music from MTV Networks, snippets from favorite HBO shows or the hottest viral video from sites like Google Video, Revver and YouTube. As the number of places to watch video content online explodes, blinkx.tv is the one-stop destination for retrieving video, delivering more content than Google, Yahoo, or any of the popular user-generated content providers. It is simply the smartest way to search.
blinkx uses advanced speech recognition technology to automatically listen to and understand audio and video content, delivering results that are more accurate and reliable than metadata-based keyword services, such as those offered by Google and Yahoo!. blinkx both spiders free content from the Web, and partners with content publishers in order to access repositories and archives that cover the broadest spectrum of interest. blinkx's over 80 content partners include YouTube, Revver, MTV Networks and the New York Times. Powering www.blinkx.com, www.blinkx.tv and numerous partner sites, blinkx now serves over 3.5 million video search queries a day.
"The last twelve months have seen an explosion of online, user-generated content. Straightforward tools and a cheaper, faster Internet have made it possible for everyone to be a producer, an author, a composer, and most importantly, a publisher," said Suranga Chandratillake, founder, blinkx. "First, podcasting and video-blogs, and now short form user-generated content - or what I call 'Garage TV' - have become tremendously popular on the numerous video sharing sites. The volume of this material will soon rival that of online content from the traditional media groups. Just as CNN and the BBC have long been silos of trusted news content, YouTube, Google Video and others are fast-becoming the home for all kinds of Garage TV."
Most video search sites that exist today are silos of content - you can search for CNN footage on CNN.com, or for ITN video at Google. blinkx.tv is the video search engine that aggregates the widest variety of content for users in a single destination site, and delivers the simplest, smartest mechanism for finding the results you're looking for.
blinkx.tv is the world's most comprehensive video search engine. Today, blinkx.tv has indexed more than 4,000,000 hours of audio, video, viral and TV content, and made it fully searchable and available on demand. blinkx's founders set out to solve a significant challenge - as TV and Garage Video on the web explodes, keyword-based search technologies only scratch the surface. blinkx's patented search technologies listen to - and even see - the web, helping users enjoy a breadth and accuracy of search results not available elsewhere. In addition, blinkx powers the video search for many of the world's most frequented sites. blinkx is a privately-held company based in San Francisco and London.
