PureVideo Networks announces updates on PureVideo Search metrics, partnerships and new features.

PureVideo Networks today announced that its new video search destination, PureVideo Search (http://www.purevideo.com), has attracted more than one million users in the first thirty days of its public beta period. This makes PureVideo Search the web's fastest growing video search destination.

PureVideo Search combines multiple partner media indices with its own proprietary index and ranking technology to provide an exceptional video search experience that balances key-word search with browsing and serendipitous discovery. The site provides users with 35+ categorized charts that display the most popular videos from leading sites such as Yahoo Music, Fox Sports, YouTube, MySpace, CNN and many others. PureVideo Search recently added Yahoo Video, CollegeHumor and Revver to its chart section at these companies' requests. Other recently added charts include C-Span, BBC America, IVillage, CBS News, Access Hollywood, and Digg.

From Erik Hawkins, CEO and co-founder of PureVideo Networks, "We at PureVideo Networks would like to thank each and every blogger, podcaster and journalist -- both for the attention they've helped create, as well as for their suggestions on how to improve the product. Generating millions of users was of course our ambition; however, to surpass that goal in just 30 days exceeded all of our expectations. We're thrilled that quality publishers are approaching us to become a part of the PureVideo directory."

PureVideo Search initially launched in beta on October 9, 2006.
