Search Your TV
from the interactive-TV-again dept
We were just talking about interactive TV, and how I thought any successful interactive TV offering would have some Tivo-like component involved, and here’s an interesting article about a company called Dremedia in the UK. It seems they’re working on a product that let’s you search your TV for certain programs. For example, you could do a search for “Osama bin Laden” and find all the TV shows that are mentioning him. The system works by analyzing all the audio and determining what each show is about. If it works (big if), it could be a pretty cool feature to add to your Tivo. However, I’m not sure how many people would find it useful enough to pay any extra for it.
