Viditor, developed by Andrew McPherson and Stuart French while still attending UTC, is an open-source, collaborative video editor, leveraging gigabit speed to allow multiple users to create and edit projects in real time and from any device with a modern browser. The only project to apply for and receive funding in both rounds of the Gigabit Community Fund, Viditor has also been accepted into UTC’s College of Computer Science & Engineering Senior Capstone program, where a team of students has joined the duo in adding additional cloud functionality. And while still a work in progress, Viditor demoed at the Creative Discovery Museum during Startup Week, with Andrew live-programming additional camera filters for an enthusiastic audience, as well as at the Fiber to the Home Council conference in Ft. Lauderdale, FL this June. The project has since piloted in an art class at the Baylor School and with beta-testers at the Chattanooga Public Library.
