Quintura Selects blinkx for Video Search
SAN FRANCISCO - Quintura, a visual discovery engine, will use blinkx to power video search on www.Quintura.com.
Quintura employs a graphical user interface with an interactive tag cloud to visually navigate and refine searches. Quintura's neural networking technology discovers related search terms to the initial query and presents those terms as the interactive tag cloud. Users can then refine or narrow down their searches by clicking on any word or phrase in the cloud.
Under the terms of the agreement, blinkx will power a video search functionality on Quintura's site, allowing Quintura to leverage results from blinkx's index of over 7 million hours of rich media content.
"blinkx's large video index is a perfect compliment to our graphical user interface," said Yakov Sadchikov, CEO and founder of Quintura. "As the Web becomes more visual and rich with content, people are looking for better ways to find video online. blinkx's video search index combined with Quintura's visual discovery engine provides users with a unique search experience. This new service has become possible due to technology innovations of our companies in visualizing search and indexing online video."
