blinkx deal with AnyClip gives users access to clips from 12,000 films

Video search engine blinkx is partnering with AnyClip for access to searchable clips from over 12,000 feature films.

The deal allows blinkx users to search and watch their favorite scenes and moments from titles owned by Warner Brothers, Universal Studios, Vivendi Entertainment, First Look and Virgil Films.

AnyClip tags, extracts and indexes more than 5,000 individual pieces of metadata from each full-length feature film. Users can search using snippets of dialogue, actors, props, and much more.

"AnyClip has made films incredibly searchable, so we can hit the highlights and find our favorite moments quickly and easily - we're very pleased to partner with another company that puts such importance on improving entertainment with technology," blinkx CEO Suranga Chandratillake said.

AnyClip CEO Oren Nauman said the deal gives his company access to a "bigger movie-loving audience who already expect a seamless and advanced video search experience."

blinkx already has indexed more than 35 million hours of video and audio content to date.
