Kaleido Search Adds Faceted Searching Built on dtSearch APIs

Built on the dtSearch Engine APIs, Contegra Systems' Kaleido Search now makes faceted search easily available to content-rich applications and ecommerce sites. Faceted search provides end users the ability to dynamically filter search results by attributes, letting users browse through results selecting criteria relevant to their search.

To date, faceted search has remained out of reach for many businesses because of design and programming costs. Contegra launched Kaleido Search to offer companies an out-of-the-box, attractive user interface with an easy way to deploy faceted search, including "plug and play" operation with existing data sources. Contegra chose to partner with dtSearch for this new product after many years of working with its APIs for clients.

The dtSearch Engine can index more than a terabyte of data in a single index-as well as create and instantly search an unlimited number of indexes. The software offers more than 25 search options, including Unicode support covering hundreds of international languages. Proprietary file format support highlights hits in popular file types. A built-in Spider supports searching of local and remote, public and secure, dynamic and static web data, with WYSIWYG hit-highlighted displays. The dtSearch Engine API supports .NET, Java, C++, SQL, etc., including native 64-bit Windows/Linux support.

For more than 2 decades, Contegra Systems ( has designed and developed search applications for Fortune 500 companies, leading universities, major online publishers, and many other clients. dtSearch ( offers 18 years of experience in text search. The dtSearch product line includes enterprise and developer text search products, meeting some of the largest-capacity text retrieval needs in the world.
