most advanced video search engine, today announced a partnership with
Dailymotion, the world's #2 website for discovering and sharing videos. Under

varied video content," said S. Brian Mukherjee, CEO of blinkx. "Adding

our index of up-to-date videos and ensure we deliver our video-viewing
audience the very best in entertainment content."

prominent validation of our network's growth, value and reach," said Luc

visibility to the Dailymotion player across their digital network: it means
more content, more time spent and now more monetization."
