Video Search and Discovery

Help viewers find the right video

Kaltura’s tools make video more searchable and discoverable. Whether through captions and transcriptions via Kaltura REACH , searchable slide text from video presentations from Kaltura Personal Capture, or advanced metadata and search tools in Kaltura MediaSpace, Kaltura makes it easier to find desired content within your video library, all in one place. Kaltura’s industry-leading search functions are the easiest, most sophisticated way to find content inside video in the market.

  • With Unified Search, search within the video title, tags, description, custom data, chapters, slides, interactive video quiz questions, webcast public items (Q&A, polls, and announcements), users, and captions, all from a single place
  • Through Automated Speech Recognition, pinpoint the exact location within a video of the search phrase
  • Use content recommendations to maximize video consumption by presenting related content, video recommendations, featured videos, most-viewed videos, recent videos, and video playlists

Partial Strings, Synonyms, Stop Words, Stemming

In-video search obeys the same rules you’re used to for online search.

  • Partial strings: Ask for a portion of a term you’re looking for and find anything that contains that fragment, including search-as-you-type.
  • Synonyms: Get results for the synonyms of your search terms as well
  • Stop words: Speed up accurate results by ignoring extremely common words like “the” or “of” in your search term
  • Stemming: Search off the stem or root word
