Yesterday, Podzinger announced that it is powering the search for Thames Valley pod.tv This is Podzinger’s first venture outside the United States. Podzinger expects to continue expanding its reach through similar partnerships.
Thames Valley pod.tv is the UK’s fastest growing video podcast webTV site and provides commercially sponsored content in a variety of areas including art, music, cooking, gardening, and business.
Podzinger uses speech-to-text technology that creates a text index of the video sound track. With Podzinger, users through keyword searches can find keyword-specific content anywhere in either audios or videos. The searcher can jump directly to the point where their keyword is spoken without having to listen or view and entire audio or video clip. Instead of relying on a paragraph of text or a series of tags to describe the show, Podzinger directly searches the content.
