"Publishing video is exciting, but it's not easy. It requires a hefty infrastructure to store and deliver it, and systems that can manage and organize all of that video content [...] I had a chance to take a look at Delve Networks' offering, and while it offers most of the basic features that others do, it has some pretty compelling aspects to as well. "
"[Video] will be pervasive, it will be the dominant media on the Internet in 10 years "
"Seattle, Nov. 15 - Start with YouTube, but subtract the music videos, the unbridled exhibitionism, the weird, the lewd, the talented and the talentless. Screen the rest for national-security breaches and vulgarity and what are you left with? TroopTube: the Pentagon's new video site launched mainly for service members and their families."
"ABC NEWS - Move over YouTube, it's time for TroopTube."
"Seattle, Nov. 11 - The U.S. military, with help from Seattle startup Delve Networks, has launched a video-sharing Web site for troops, their families and supporters, a year and a half after restricting access to YouTube and other video sites. Part of Delve's work was to build speedy tools for approving and sorting incoming videos. Its technology also crunches video files into several sizes and automatically plays the one that best suits viewers' Internet connection speeds."
"Seattle, Nov. 11 - In honor of Veteran’s Day, Delve Networks has teamed with Military OneSource (a service of the Department of Defense) to launch TroopTube - a YouTube-like site that gives all active-duty military personnel and their families a place to share their videos online."
"Seattle, Nov. 11 - Just in time for Veteran's Day, the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) is launching TroopTube - a new social networking and user-generated content (UGC) site for military personnel."
"Seattle, Aug. 26 - Delve Networks announced today that it has inked a partnership with PLYmedia to integrate interactive video products into its proprietary semantic web video platform. Coupled with Delve's revolutionary platform, which allows users to navigate through hosted content, PLYmedia's web video enhancements will help create unparalleled engagement opportunity for video content consumers."
"The secret sauce behind Delve resides in the search functionality that allows publishers and consumers to find relevant information buried in hundreds or thousands of hours of video content."
"As the ability to search within a video improves, users will be able to find relevant content faster and the amount of time they spend consuming that content will increase..."
"2008 could be the year online video becomes everything advertisers and publishers alike have dreamed it would be."
"The lure of inside-the-video search was enough to hook Intel Capital, Draper Fischer Jurvetson Frontier, and Labrador Ventures into offering $6 million in a first round of funding to Seattle-based Pluggd."
"Alex Castro has been patient. 'I always felt that voice recognition was a technology that would someday be applied to mainstream uses'."
"As a fun technology demo, Pluggd will be processing upcoming President Bush's State of the Union address and the Democratic response on Tuesday... instead of listening to the full speech, you can find the audio clips relevant to you."
"The ramifications are significant, and that's just for starters. Once these audio chunks are analyzed, they can be mixed and mashed up in all manner of ways, pinpointing what users are looking for much for efficiently than text tags ever could."
"This search function enables you to skip to the parts of podcasts you want to hear. The feature is called HearHere... the demo I saw looked remarkable."
"Pluggd provides that 'wow' experience, giving you what you intuitively want when searching video: a way to skip forward to the exact part of the audio or video file you are looking for."
"I was wowed with regards to the "HearHere" technology featured at Pluggd.... I love the heat sensor/color bar in terms of relevance. Very user-friendly and a great visual tool."
"Silicon Valley is swamped with confident entrepreneurs. But confident, candid and humble ones are in short supply- especially at technology conferences, where humility is often treated as a liability. That's why I took an interest in Alex Castro, founder of a Seattle startup called Pluggd. I met the 32-year-old last month at the DEMO conference..."
"Superstar Pluggd, Inc. has a pretty sexy capability to sort through the gazillion hours of audio and video content online in order to find exactly what you want to see and hear."
"If you're listening to a podcast... and want to jump to the part that talks about a particular thing, Pluggd will find it for you... This is a very cool system..."
"For my money, one of the best demos of the show so far is Pluggd's HearHere search technology... What makes Pluggd standout is its "Heat Map" which shows exactly where your queried phrase is uttered, but also shows other warm areas..."
"One of the highlights of the morning session was Pluggd's HearHere software that combines semantic/topic analysis and speech recognition to allow searching of audio files for specific content."
"This is one of the most compelling examples I've seen lately of a growing trend: making multimedia content more granular and letting users take even greater control over the media we consume. We don't just want to consume what we wish, we want to consume it in the way we wish."
"The $100 billion radio and TV ad market is undergoing a revolution. It's moving to the Internet... we're going to capture a big share of that."
"Finally, finally, finally, a podcast directory has made it super easy to subscribe and listen to podcasts... A new service called Pluggd is so freaking easy, there's no more worries about downloading software or anything like that."
"Pluggd offers a few things that really differentiate it from other podcast communities...The Pluggd search engine actively crawls the web for new podcasts to index, instead of relying only on user submissions...The podcast directory space couldn't be much more crowded, but I like this one."
