Newspapers has been preparing for the royal wedding on June 19th for quite some time
Many newspapers are concerned about how they should have enough time to produce and publish materials. And when it comes to quickly publish photos during the day, many wonder if the 3G network will crash. Some have experimented with 4G dongles and netbooks to quickly send photos and other attempts to gain access to business buildings and apartments with solid Internet connections close of the wedding events. But hey, now there is a solution!

Through an exclusive partnership with Shoot It Live Scanpix now offers a live photo feed to international and Swedish customer sites. Scanpix will have about 40 photographers on location, access to fixed Internet connections in several locations, and unique access to a number of places. As soon as the photographers send a photo it will automatically be pushed out to all sites that bought the live photo feed from Scanpix.
