Dorking, England, March 8th 2012 – Solid Mastermind announces the immediate availability of SmartVS. SmartVS is an intelligent search, locate, and play system for on-line Solid Edge video content.
On-line video has helped revolutionise educational processes and methods. There are a plethora of videos on YouTube and so many other hosting platforms and websites. There are videos of webinars, videos of seminars and classroom training sessions, screen capture videos, instructional videos, bespoke video content. The list is endless. But there is one major problem. How do you find the information you need? Not only the actual video itself, but the location within that video.
SmartVS addresses this issue. It allows Solid Edge users to search for video content using any chosen term or phrase. They can then view the returned result precisely from the point in the video relating to the search term. This makes Solid Mastermind powered by SmartVS an advanced on-line video training and video help system for Solid Edge.
Others have tried and continue to index videos by using the on-screen dialogue, either the spoken word or the subtitles. Whilst this technique may be suitable for finding a specific scene in a movie it is not suited to technical and instructional videos. As an example how would such a search for “waste material” distinguish between “waste material” and “don’t waste material”? Also how would it understand the context of “waste material”? Is it the product that is wasted or the process of wasting?
Those techniques just don’t work for educational or instructional videos. Typically you’re presented with lots of irrelevant results. SmartVS has been developed to overcome those limitations. It uses several innovative patented, and patent pending, techniques to deliver accurate, focused results. This allows Solid Edge users to find and access the video content and information they desire as quickly as possible.

Arthur Sexton Managing Director of Ingenea, the developers of Solid Mastermind, comments: “I wouldn’t like to add up the time I’ve wasted trying to find what I’m looking for within videos. It would be horrendous. So that’s why we are very excited about the release of SmartVS and the unique benefits it offers Solid Edge users.
Imagine if you had access to an invaluable reference book but it didn’t have an index. Would you be prepared to read the book from cover to cover each time you wanted to find some information? So why is it you’re expected to do that with video?
Unfortunately most publishers of video content aren’t providing consumers with an index of any sort. Individuals, bloggers and Solid Edge resellers are flooding the on-line space with video content, but there appears to be little or no regard for how someone can find, and access, the content they need.
The more content there is the worse this problem becomes. You lose more and more of your valuable time trying to find what you desire, as you sift through hours and hours of irrelevant video. That is exactly where SmartVS comes in. It allows you to in essence to ‘search inside’ video content. You can search, locate and view the content you require in seconds.
I would urge every Solid Edge user to try our unique SmartVS system for themselves by visiting:
We are looking forward to expanding our video library to deliver the ultimate on-line video help system for Solid Edge. “
