Microsoft acquires VideoSurf

07.30 Europe/London, November 24, 2011 By Robert Briel




Microsoft has announced the acquisition of California-based video discovery technology company VideoSurf.

Founded in 2006, VideoSurf offers a back-end computer vision technology that sees frames inside videos to make discovering content fast, easy and accurate. Over time, Microsoft will integrate this technology into the Xbox 360 ecosystem and evolve search and discovery of entertainment content on Xbox Live.
VideoSurfs content analytics technology will enhance the search and discovery of entertainment content across our platform, said Alex Garden, director of Xbox Live for the interactive entertainment business at Microsoft. This holiday we will launch voice search across our entertainment partners on Xbox Live. Over time, as we integrate VideoSurfs technology into our system, we are excited about the potential to have content tagged in real time to increase the speed and relevance of the search results.
Microsofts Interactive Entertainment Division is at the leading edge of connected entertainment, said Lior Delgo, CEO and co-founder of VideoSurf. We are incredibly excited to be working together on our mutual passion for creating amazing consumer experiences and reinventing how consumers search, discover and enjoy content on their televisions.
In the coming months, Microsoft will bring nearly 40 TV and entertainment providers to Xbox Live, including Bravo, Comcast, HBO GO, Verizon FiOS and Syfy in the U.S.; BBC in the UK; Telefnica in Spain; Rogers On Demand in Canada; Televisa in Mexico; ZDF in Germany; and Mediaset in Italy.
This acquisition will also make it easier to take full advantage of features such as voice search enabled by Kinect for Xbox 360.
