Image And Video Searching – www.ditto.com, www.broadcast.com – Company Business and Marketing – Brief Article
Type a word into Ditto.com’s engine (www.ditto.com), and you’ll get a set of nine corresponding thumbnail images; clicking on an image expands it, and takes you to the source page. Ditto uses a picture-to-text-pattern matching technology that crawls around the Web gathering both images and textual information, as well as employing 100 human filters who make sure the images returned are the most relevant.
The addition of MediaSite’s search engine to Yahoo Broadcast Services’ video site (www.broadcast.com) means you can now search for and view multimedia clips from 420 radio and 56 television stations and cable networks.
