blinkx Launches Mobile Video Search Site

World's Largest and Most Advanced Video Search Engine Now Optimized for Handheld Devices at http://m.blinkx.com/

blinkx, the world's largest and most advanced video search engine, today launched a public beta version of its world-class product that is specifically designed for mobile access at http://m.blinkx.com/.

Starting Wednesday, consumers can access the blinkx Mobile Video Search beta site from any phone with a Web browser that can play MP4s, including the iPhone, Google Nexus One, HTC Desire and Magic, and also the Blackberry Bold 9700 devices. The new site leverages blinkx's extensive network of top tier content partners to enable users to search, browse and play millions of videos from a wide and varied range of broadcasters and media companies, including ITN, CelebTV, HowCast and Lonely Planet.

The m.blinkx.com homepage has been optimized for ease-of-use on a mobile device, displaying a blinkx Video Wall of nine thumbnails of the top stories from around the Web, as well as one-click category browsing, and a large central search bar so consumers can look for videos on any topic they choose; from news and sports, to polar bears, Lady Gaga, or how to make a water gun alarm clock. The videos are streamed to the user's handheld device and play in MP4 format.

"This year, mobile video has hit the mainstream. The number of handsets that are video-enabled has reached critical mass, and combined with the prevalence of high-speed mobile networks and new flat-rate data plans, mobile video finally makes sense for both consumers and media companies," said Suranga Chandratillake, founder and CEO, blinkx. "blinkx's extensive and varied library of shorter form, snackable video is the ideal format for consumption on-the-go. Whether you're watching Britney at the bus stop, or game highlights on your lunch hour, our goal is to enable users to find and enjoy video from any device, anywhere."
