Boris FX ( will partner with Nexidia, a provider of audio analysis and dialogue search technology for the media and entertainment industries, to launch Boris Soundbite, a tool to locate footage by finding any word or phrase spoken in multimedia files.

According to Boris Yamnitsky, president and founder of Boris FX, Soundbite will let you:

° Combine multiple phrases and standard Final Cut Pro metadata terms to search hundreds of hours of media in seconds.

° Preview results in the Soundbite player. Soundbite will search and play virtually any media file supported in QuickTime.

° Place selected clips into a Final Cut Pro project with one click, including markers for each dialogue match and in/out points set in the Soundbite player.

Boris Soundbite — which will be compatible with Mac OS X 10.7 (“Lion”) — will be available in September through the Boris FX worldwide reseller channel and direct from the Boris FX website for an introductory price of US$295. The introductory price will be offered for 30 days; afterward, the suggested retail price will be $495.
