Quintura – Visual search engine startup gets funding

Visual search engine company Quintura has received an undisclosed amount of funding from Mangrove Capital Partners, Luxembourg. Also, Quintura officially launched its Visual Find Engine today that supposedly delivers better search results using advanced Neural Networking techniques. Quintura, headed by Yakov Sadchikov, has offices in Alexandria, Virginia, and software development operations in the Moscow.

“Our team approached the problem of finding Internet-based information and entertainment from the standpoint of the user” said Yakov Sadchikov, co-founder and CEO of Quintura. “We strived to build something that made it as easy as possible for the user to find exactly what they are looking for as quickly as possible. We also wanted to make the user experience very visual and more enjoyable, so we built in visual navigation technologies that are more appealing to users.”

Quintura search works in different way as compared to traditional search. When you search at Quintura, it comes back with a Quintura Cloud that enables users to visually navigate and easily refine their results to find relevant information faster and more efficiently. As you scroll over the result tags, Quintura automatically refreshes the results window with the relevant results for the new tag. Quintura also highlights related tags and provides the ability to select multiple tags to obtain precise results.

Quintura delivers both web and image results and you can easily switch back and forth between the tow result sets. You can also easily bookmark, save, and share the search results obtained. Quintura had initially launched a desktop search client  earlier this year, which is available at Download.com.
