Microsoft said it has inked a deal to acquire VideoSurf, a San Mateo, Calif.,-based provider of technology that allows users to conduct visual searches through large volumes of video content, such as movies and TV shows.

Terms of the deal were not announced, though TechCrunch reported that the price was just under $100 million.

Microsoft said it will initially integrate VideoSurf’s technology into its Xbox Live service, so members can search through video content stored on the gaming and entertainment service.

“Over time, as we integrate VideoSurf’s technology into our system, we are excited about the potential to have the content tagged in real-time to integrate the speed and relevance of the search results,” said Alex Garden, director of Microsoft’s Xbox Live unit, in a statement.
