Blinkx indexes 12M hours of Web content

Share this article:

Video search engine blinkx.com has reached a milestone by indexing more than 12 million hours of audio, video, viral and TV content and making it fully searchable and free to users on the Web.

It marks a notable increase over just a few months ago and is the result of constant growth through successful spidering of the Web.

In addition, in the past year blinkx has made more than 130 media partnerships.

While other video search technologies are based on metadata, blinkx's patented technology includes speech-to-text transcription and visual analysis.

Blinkx says its fast growth can be attributed to the new technological enhancements it has made in the past year. For example, blinkx Remote leverages blinkx's unique speech-to-text transcription and indexing technology to quickly identify full-length TV shows by season and episode, and corroborates search results with information from trusted online sources such as Wikipedia and IMDB.com.

Blinkx is a free tool that enables bloggers to easily insert relevant video streams into their blogs and Web site builders to spice up their sites with video.
