Enterprise Video Search Leader Altus Secures Trademark of vSearch® Name

CAMPBELL, CA--(Marketwire - February 2, 2011) - Altus, a leader in enterprise on-demand rich media solutions for conferences, sales enablement, and knowledge sharing, today announced that the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) has awarded them with a registered trademark for vSearch which serves as the name for the company's highly successful enterprise video search solution.

"We are pleased the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office has granted us the trademark for our vSearch product," said Altus CEO Ted Cocheu. "This is one of a series of expected intellectual property developments we expect to announce over the coming year at Altus."

Altus vSearch transforms enterprise video into a valuable asset for any organization. It combines enterprise video search with PowerPoint synchronization and scrolling transcripts into an accessible and searchable video archive, available from anywhere via a computer, smartphone or tablet device. Using video from any source -- from Flip™ video cameras to web conferencing applications -- vSearch turns previously inaccessible video into searchable data by transforming every word spoken, those on a slide or in the notes, into searchable content. Using familiar search functionality, users can find just the knowledge they need-at the presentation, topic or sentence level -- eliminating time otherwise lost looking for knowledge.
