On November 22, 2011, Microsoft has announced the acquisition of California-based video discovery technology company VideoSurf Inc. Founded in 2006, VideoSurf offers a back-end computer vision technology that "sees" frames inside videos to make discovering content fast, easy, and accurate. Over time, Microsoft will integrate this technology across its entertainment platform to augment the Xbox 360 ecosystem and evolve search and discovery of entertainment content on Xbox LIVE. 

Microsoft is currently handling the support for these newly acquired products. Existing VideoSurf customers should contact Microsoft Support to receive support for your products.
