VideoPulp Appliance–The Video Search Meets SAAS Business

Videos will account for 90 percent of network traffic by 2013 and even now, searching for text inside video hasn’t been perfected. Most importantly, a lot of videos have slides in them (like UnPlugd videos) and it’s really difficult to search for text/slides inside the videos.vp

VideoPulp is a Bangalore based startup that has built a product that can process videos, extract slides , and extract text from those slides. By using all the data thus extracted from the videos, the Videopulp platform can index/segment videos and provide a search inside lecture videos.

The startup from ex-Cisco, ex-Slideshare team member has launched Videopulp Appliance – a Hardware box that is also available as hosted SAAS model. The appliance

  • indexes slides in a video, and makes them searchable.
  • creates a listing of topics which link back to the appropriate part of the video (which contains that slide).
  • Provides search for the topics and text for slides in the video

With the ever increasing number of videos , an effective deep search technology is a killer product and is much needed in market segments like Corporates and Universities. In the past we have seen startups in similar space, but failed to crack the enterprise sales – we hope VideoPulp is keen on solving the sales challenge, as they are pretty much creating a new industry (right now all of the transcription is done manually, thanks to cheap labor available in India).
