PBS Content Now Searchable on blinkx

Video search engine blinkx has added PBS streaming
video content
to its index. Now blinkx users will find hours of PBS educational, news and public
affairs streaming content online. The searchable content that has been added includes documentaries and other popular PBS programs of high value to consumers and educators. With the addition of this content with its strong public service and educational focus, blinkx adds to the inventory of searchable video content available to and useful for educators. blinkx uses speech recognition technology to deliver results rather than standard metadata-based keyword searches. This approach is quite compatible and complementary to PBS's content-rich documentary and educational content.
