blinkx Partners with ExitReality
November 7, 2008
Video search engine blinkx has formed a partnership with ExitReality, the company 'that converts the Web into three dimensions.' Users of ExitReality will now have access to millions of hours of Internet video to view and share in 3D spaces, courtesy of blinkx.
Gartner analysts have predicted that 80 per cent of all active Internet users will have a virtual-world presence by 2011, a potential not lost on either company. It has also been noted that visitors stay longer in 3D virtual worlds than on 2D Web sites, giving media companies and advertisers new opportunities to engage potential customers.
