The functionality features new buttons for better browsing
Blinkx, an advanced video search engine, has unveiled new functionality thereby providing new ways for users to search, explore and discover video on the internet.
Blinkx has said that it is unveiling a new homepage featuring ‘Entertain Me’, ‘Inform Me’ and ‘Give Me My Own Channel’ buttons to offer users a better browsing experience, in addition to the video search technology on the web.
According to the company, the new blinkx.com site allows users to select ‘Inform me’ for a roundup of the top news stories, ‘Entertain Me’ for the popular viral video, or ‘Give Me’ to create a personalized channel. They can then choose either to watch the content in a linear way as a channel, or click ‘More Information’ in the bottom right-hand corner of the screen, to tap into the full potential of blinkx’s search technology.
Suranga Chandratillake, founder and CEO of blinkx, said: Every day, millions of people come to blinkx.com with a specific search in mind – looking for a particular program or video clip. But increasingly, we’re seeing our audience use our site more like a TV: people want to sit back and be entertained, or use the information blinkx can generate about a video to guide their browsing experience. With our new homepage, we’re offering a more enriched viewing experience for the Web’s vast array of video content.
