About Rhythmone, LLC

If you film it, blinkx will show it. The company operates a video search engine that crawls the Web for video. (blinkx differs from video sharing site YouTube in that it doesn't provide a place to host video.) The service boasts about 35 million hours of indexed video from more than 720 partners and serves ads against them. The technology behind blinkx uses speech recognition to analyze and process the video itself, instead of relying solely on text keywords as a search criteria. It powers the video searches for Ask.com, LookSmart, and hundreds of other sites. The firm was launched in 2004 by Suranga Chandratillake, former CTO of Autonomy Corporation. It completed an IPO on the London Stock Exchange in 2007.
