Mobile Video Search with Vtap
Mobile search company Veveo secured another $14 million in funding this year for their mobile video search tool, Vtap. That brings the total amount raised to $28 million from Norwest Venture Parnters, Matrix and North Bridge Venture Partners.
Vtap is a mobile video search application that attempts to cut down on the amount of time users must spend on a mobile device finding the videos that they want. Using incremental search technology, as the user types in what they are looking for, Vtap continually provides refined results after each character entered. Veveo is talking with several handset manufacturers andmobile service providers, including Verizon. The Vtap service will debut September 10.
