As the choices for entertainment content and devices continue to expand, consumers need tools for finding, sorting, selecting and navigating their available options. Rovi Search Services lets service providers, device manufacturers and developers facilitate content navigation with universal, personalized search across video-on-demand, linear, DVR and over-the-top sources.
Rovi Search Services allows consumers to perform common queries, like program or movie titles, band or album names, track titles and actor/artist names. It can provide results based on users’ implicit and explicit actions, including:
As a result, each user will see results based on past activity in addition to simple text matches, making the search experience even more relevant.
Rovi Search Services uses a deep understanding of the way people make queries to produce relevant results faster via natural interaction. It supports acronyms, abbreviations and misspellings, returns incremental results as users type search terms, and understands abstract concepts and connections beyond typical data types. And, search results can be generated traditionally or through natural conversation for the ultimate discovery experience. Our voice recognition technology can understand complex queries and support context-switching, pronoun use, follow-up questions, negation and ambiguous language.
Rovi Search Services is powered by our comprehensive, enhanced entertainment metadata and built on the Rovi Knowledge Graph engine, a dynamic knowledge base of entertainment metadata capable of understanding trends and conversations. By combining powerful search algorithms, quality reviews by media analysts and extensive catalogs of entertainment metadata, Rovi Search Services provides a seamless discovery experience across platforms and devices.
