New SmartSearch™ feature generates instant results when users search media libraries.
Laguna Niguel, Calif.—In the latest upgrade to its industry-leading creative workflow and media management platform, Simian has added an advanced, global smart search tool that enables users to get the results ten times faster than ever before. Simian SmartSearch™ includes an auto-complete feature that returns real time results instantly with as few as two keystrokes.
SmartSearch™ is designed to help companies search their content more quickly and generate better results, no matter the size of their libraries. Users can search across a wide range of data fields associated with media files including credits, title, tags, file name, description and even the comments made on individual files. SmartSearch™ also enhances efficiency and flexibility when it comes building demo reels and presentations and varying project management tasks.
“SmartSearch begins returning results when the user types as few as two characters,” explains Simian co-founder Brian Atton. “They instantly begin to see the most relevant video, image and sound files. Users can select the results they want even before they finish typing.”
SmartSearch™ can be used to search the user’s Media Library and within Simian’s Reels and Projects applications. In each case, users can search by a variety of criteria and apply filters to manage the results. For example, results can be filtered by number, date or name.
“We are constantly striving to develop innovative features to help creative companies work smarter and faster,” says Atton. “SmartSearch™ is just the latest example. It allows companies to better access and exploit their media assets in order to improve their sales and marketing efforts and make projects run more smoothly.”
