Use: Find and integrate user-created videos from the same event
Crowdflik is a free app that allows users to shoot video of events and find and edit other videos shot with CrowdFlik from the same event. According to the developer, “CrowdFlik uses the naval atomic clock to accurately time stamp video with 1/10th of a second accuracy. Once video is captured and saved, it is stored in the cloud and recognized by the app in 10 second clips on the event timeline. When a user taps their favorite video clips from an event, CrowdFlik is then able to pull the different event footage from the cloud and synchronize it precisely.”
Although developed initially for use at concerts, weddings, parties, etc., you can imagine news organizations aggregating different video perspectives from the same news event and editing into one package. Of course, that requires that other witnesses are using the Crowdflik app as well.
