What IS Video Search?

A new era for both CAV and for search engines everywhere. Colorado Audio Visual, in partnership with Microsearch, have developed Video Search Engine Optimization or Vidse for short. Vidse allows the user to search for specific words or phrases within your videos. When you click on one of the results you are immediately taken to that point in the video. A transcript scrolls next to your video as it plays. At any time you can click within the transcript to jump to that part of the video! There is much more functionality however the core features of a searchable index really open up your video to a wealth of functionality and accessibility. We will soon have a Vidse demo page and video to show you everything we’re working on so stayed tuned!
