The Roundabout Tapes – Frameblast aims to be the Google for TV and video archives

Continuing our series of interviews with companies in the Silicon Roundabout area of London (we’re calling this The Roundabout Tapes), we interviewed Clearer Partners.

Clearer is a specialised tech/media consulting company but is also doing a startup. The soon to launch Frameblast is aimed at SOHO companies who want to handle video in a smarter way along the lines of Media Silo. Companies can upload their archives into the cloud and use it like a Google search engine for their archive, with tags galore.

The ex-Joost team is also working with the The British Parliament on transforming its handling of its huge video archive from a modern approach – as opposed to an older, more broadcast way of doing things.
