GearSprout LLC was started earlier this year by Tommy Tornroos and Marshall Miller who both graduated from Southern Polytechnic State University (SPSU) in Marietta, Georgia. This startup tech-company is not the first for Tornroos, as he started TuneTransfers in 2006 to convert music and video media to CDs and DVDs for customers in Georgia.
“I realized that when converting home videos like VHS or 8mm tapes there were lots of distorted sections that had to be manually removed and there was no software available to do this automatically, so we decided to create it ourselves,” Tornroos explained. The two creators of SproutConverter met at SPSU in 2010 and decided to quit their full-time day jobs in 2012 to pursue their goals to start GearSprout LLC and develop SproutConverter together.
Not only can SproutConverter help do-it-your-selvers transfer their home movies to digital by removing distorted sections, this new software can also convert DVDs and downloaded video files to play on your iPhone, iPad, AppleTV, Xbox 360, PS3 and more. “And this is just the beginning, we are excited to finish the Windows version of our software in the next two months,” added Tornroos.
