    Microsoft aquires VideoSurf for future Xbox Live Intergration.

    Microsoft: "VideoSurf's content analytics technology will enhance the search and discovery of entertainment content across our platform," said Alex Garden, director of Xbox LIVE for the Interactive Entertainment Business at Microsoft. "This holiday we will launch voice search across our entertainment partners on Xbox LIVE. Over time, as we integrate VideoSurf's technology into our system, we are excited about the potential to have content tagged in real time to increase the speed and relevance of the search results." "Microsoft's Interactive Entertainment Division is at the leading edge of connected entertainment," said Lior Delgo, CEO and co-founder of VideoSurf. "We are incredibly excited to be working together on our mutual passion for creating amazing consumer experiences and reinventing how consumers search, discover and enjoy content on their televisions."

    This acquisition will also make it easier for world-class video partners to take full advantage of advanced features such as voice search enabled by Kinect for Xbox 360. With Kinect, users will be able to easily search and discover content across multiple entertainment providers within Xbox LIVE and then interact with and enjoy content in extraordinary ways using voice search powered by Bing on the Xbox 360.
    So, this will bring us the ability to find say a movie or tv show by describing a part of the movie, the set, a scene, etc as one example. Nice.

    I thought it was audio surf when I first glanced at the title.

    I am getting excited about Microsoft's plans for their next-generation box. Sounds like it will have a big focus on multi-media features and user-interface navigation combined with voice and hand/gesture control.
