AOL Canada Inc. has announced new on-line video initiatives to find, explore and experience videos on the Web. Using its video search service, AOL has launched Video Search, available through the AOL service and AOL.ca.
Video Search is designed to deliver a comprehensive repository of high-quality video content on-line in key categories from entertainment to news. Its database draws from its AOL Video on-demand archive of more than 15,000 licensed and originally produced video assets, including broadcast television; more than 1.5 million video assets available on the Internet indexed through Singingfish, a video and audio search engine; and Really Simple Syndication (RSS) feeds from video streaming sites. This combined approach lets people search from one place for high-quality, current on-line video spanning popular music videos, movie features, television clips, news coverage, sports highlights, independently produced videos and more.
As part of its service of on on-demand video, the new AOL.ca Web portal will soon launch an innovative Video Hub that will serve as a central location for music, news, sports and entertainment video programming. This new initiative will be integrated with both the new AOL Video Search and Video Player.
