Rishon Lezion, Israel – (The Hosting News) – October 22, 2007 – Natural Speech Recognition Ltd., (NSC), will be launching a multimedia search engine, designed with the capability to recognize spoken words in online multimedia files, as the firm seeks to develop partnerships with content providers.
The speech recognition vendor specializing in Automatic Speech Recognition and Key Word Spotting is planning the launch for 2008. Based on NSC’s speech recognition technology, successfully deployed globally, the search engine enables the rapid identification of spoken words and phrases in web-based multimedia files presented in a smart presentation layer to provide the users with useful information and fast sorting capabilities. The company is actively seeking partnerships with content providers
According to the company, due to the ongoing expansion of today’s multimedia environment, there is a growing need for search engines that provide advanced search capabilities for media files. Traditional search engines do not deal effectively with rich media – usually handling only the textual attributes of media files – which leads to poor search results and low query relevancy. In addition, with currently-available search engines, users are typically required to view media files in their entirety – often required to spend time in accessing and viewing the entire media file, prior to determining the relevance of the files.
In response to the current situation, NSC has developed a powerful multimedia search engine that enables Internet users to quickly and easily locate, preview, and gauge the relevance of media files. The smart preview functionality – based on the company’s cutting-edge technology – significantly reduces the time required to browse through media files and sort results, and enables fast identification of the relevant content.
Dr. Ami Moyal, CEO of NSC noted, ”The ability to look for relevant content within online media files not only provides clear benefits for Internet users, but also helps content providers to increase traffic to their websites and increase the visibility of their content by making it searchable from an external source. NSC’s multimedia search engine will enable access to specific points within multimedia content as well as rapid indexing of new material – which will enable users to search and access new content immediately after its release – an especially important for providers of news-related content.”
During the current pre-launch period, NSC is calling on content providers and aggregators to partner with the company on this new initiative, and to make their content searchable and available via the new search engine. In addition to enabling the intelligent and effective search of their media content, partners will benefit from increased traffic to their websites, expanded advertising potential, and exposure of their content well beyond their own sites.
