VideoSurf has created a better way for users to
search, discover and watch online videos.
Using a unique combination of new computer vision and
fast computation methods, VideoSurf has taught computers to “see” inside videos
to find content in a fast, efficient, and scalable way. Basing its search on
visual identification, rather than text only, VideoSurf’s computer vision video
search engine provides more relevant results and a better experience to let
users find and discover the videos they really want to watch.
With over 50 billion (and rapidly growing!) visual
moments indexed from videos found across the web, VideoSurf allows consumers to
visually navigate through their results to easily find the specific scenes,
people or moments they most want to see. Users can now spend less time
searching and more time being entertained!
VideoSurf was founded in 2006 by leading experts in
search, computer vision and fast computation technology and aims to become the
destination for users looking to find, discover and watch online videos. The
company is based in San Mateo, California.
