Pixsy Announces Visual Search Engine

Apr 11, 2006

Pixsy Corporation, a developer of image search solutions, has announced Version 2.0 of its web-based visual search engine that aggregates and searches RSS feeds. Pixsy has developed a proprietary visual search engine that aggregates RSS feeds, extracts photos and video thumbnail images, indexes and organizes them into categories, and makes them searchable for users.

Pixsy collects content from RSS feeds, resulting in millions of searchable photos and videos. Users can search and browse the latest news photos, the latest sports photos, the latest celebrity photos, etc. Pixsy searches RSS feeds from providers including Reuters, The New York Times, YouTube, C/Net, StupidVideos.com, BusinessWeek, USAToday, iVillage, StarPulse, Variety, Golf.com, the BBC, and more. Instead of hosting and serving the content directly to users, Pixsy drives traffic to RSS feed providers where users can view the material in more detail.
