Percevia (pronounced per-see-vee-ah) is an "perception engine" that offers a new level of sophistication for building searchable interactive media such as television guides, photo albums, cookbooks, buyer's guides, catalogs, field guides, fact books, hotel locators, stamp collections, web sites and much more. Technically speaking, Percevia? uses visual icons and multimedia (sounds and graphics) to allow interactive identification of specific objects in a database. But there is much more to this technology. Under the "hood" Percevia's patent pending algorithm and search protocol prevents searches from giving negative results. Called SAVE (for Smart Attribute and Value Elimination) our engine removes data and attributes that would not help narrow the search. Searches are done step by step rather "all at once" as in most engines, so at each step Percevia? evaluates the remaining attributes and values and discards any that are useless or irrelevant. This may sound like a simple process but it's the main frustration in all search engines today; most users of "all at once" or "I'm feeling lucky" engines end up with zero matches or a thousand matches. Percevia? guarantees a user will never see "sorry no results meet your criteria". You can quickly grasp this distinction by taking one of the visual tours below, which show an example of using Percevia? as a field guide to birds. In this capacity it can locate a particular bird in only a few clicks, where using the book would take much longer and may not even be successful.
