Blinkx unveils podcast, video blog search
Blinkx also has a Web site that uses voice recognition software to transcribe video and audio data into text for more accurate full-text searching than other search technology, said Suranga Chandratillake, co-founder and chief technology officer. The broadcast channel lets people search from a wide variety of radio, TV and other sources.
Now, the company has indexed and made searchable content from about 20,000 podcast channels, as well as video blogs, which are weblogs that use video as their primary presentation format.
