Microsoft has acquired California-based video discovery technology company VideoSurf, for an undisclosed sum.

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, says Microsoft.
