SAN FRANCISCO - March 26, 2007 - blinkx, the world’s largest video search engine and VideoJug, the hugely popular website for factual ‘How to’ content today announce a partnership whereby blinkx will index the entire library of VideoJug’s films and make them easily searchable at www.blinkx.com.
VideoJug (www.videojug.com) is focused on becoming the leading global provider of educational, factual and self-improvement video content, and already produces hundreds of informative and often entertaining videos every week, across a wide range of subjects, including Relationships, Health, Home, Food & Drink and Sport.
“We’re delighted to be partnering with blinkx to extend the availability of our content,” said Dan Thompson, Global CEO of VideoJug. “With blinkx’s powerful search technology, users will be able to find answers to all the questions life throws at them quickly and easily.”
“People often turn to the Web to answer many of life’s little questions, but the search results can be overwhelming,” said Suranga Chandratillake, CTO and founder of blinkx. “That’s why we’re so delighted to be partnering with VideoJug. Through this partnership, we can provide users with an easy way to find answers and helpful hints to address all of their burning questions.”
As the pioneer in video search technology, blinkx has built a reputation as the smartest way to search new forms of online content such as video. With more than 100 partners and seven million hours of indexed video and audio content, including favorite TV moments, news clips, short documentaries, music videos, video blogs and more, blinkx uses advanced speech recognition technology to deliver results that are more accurate and reliable than standard metadata-based keyword searches.

In addition, blinkx powers the video search for many of the world’s most frequented sites. blinkx is a privately-held company based in San Francisco and London.
