Live photos from the royal wedding

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.

Shoot It Live – part of Aftonbladet's Super Live

Aftonbladet launched Super Live during the final of Melodifestivalen, where visitors were met by a new landing page with live photos, live web-TV, chat, tweets and live reporting

The Shoot It Live player, which has a customized menu for Aftonbladet, was placed in the Super Lives peak. The first photo was taken at 19:32 and the last picture from the afterparty was shot and published at 04:06 in the morning. 454 photos in total were published on Aftonbladet.se with an average delay of 34 seconds from photo moment until the photo’s publication.

– Super Live was a good case forward and I liked that (as expected) was using off-the-shelf coveritlive. I mostly liked that they pushed out the photos and texts without the need to refresh the browser, says it-personality Joakim jardenberg on his blog http://jardenberg.se

– Awesome reporting from the Globe arena! Great live TV with Josefine Sundström, Bert Karlsson and everyone else! Super fast photos, says Aftonbladet editor Jan Helin on his blog http://blogg.aftonbladet.se/janhelin

Shoot It Live likes to emphasize the Aftonbladet photographer and Årets Bild prizewinner Andreas Bardell, who used Shoot It Live from World Cup in Berlin last summer and became the first photographer in the world to publish photos of Usain Bolt’s world record in the 200m. During the Olympics in Canada Bardell and Aftonbladet.se became the first in the world to publish photos of Marit Bjørgen, Charlotte Kalla and Bjorn Ferry’s Olympic gold races.

– With Shoot It Live I can focus on doing what I do best. It gives me a great advantage against our competitors. Three times I have been the first photographer in the world to publish photos from major championships. To be able to repeat the success with my photo’s of Usain Bolt last summer, not once but twice in one day feels like I took gold in live publishing, says Andreas Bardell, Photographer at Aftonbladet.

– We are extremely happy and proud to be part of Aftonbladet’s Super Live, and all publications of live photos from world records and Olympic golds. This is another example of how Shoot It Live is being used to quickly and easily live publish photos directly to the web, said Martin Levy, Founder and CEO Voogly AB.

Wow, it's live – Aftonbladet SuperLive


Aftonbladet launches SuperLive – a new way to follow the events live

Imagine that you are watching Melodifestivalen tonight – with your notebook in your lap. While Pernilla Wahlgren is on the scene, you have plenty of other back channels started.

You follow the twitter stream, watch live photo slide shows, hanging on behind the stage where the next artist is getting ready. Super Live has its own program manager who guides you where SVT’s cameras do not reach, you’re on the heels of our live-bloggers who have an eye from below, above and outside the loop.

Total here and now – on a single screen.
The premiere takes place tonight at 19.30. And if you then go into aftonbladet.se you’re greeted by a brand new start page.

– Now we combine everything at the same place where we get a massive reader involvement. It becomes something entirely different than sitting on the couch and watch TV. Every time something big happens Super Live is going to be there, says Andreas Aspegren acting site manager. Read more.

Ekstra bladet in Las Vegas

ekstra_web

denmark

At the end of August Shoot It Live teamed up with Canon and went to Copenhagen to meet newspapers and to promote live publishing. The danish surprised us when describing their need to live publish photos and the various creative (but not that successful) attempts in the past.

It didn’t take too long before Ekstra bladet, which is one of Scandinavia’s leading newspapers, signed up to become the first danish Shoot It Live user. And they have recently made their first live coverage with Shoot It Live.

In true Ekstra bladet style, they kicked it off big time as they covered the world boxing champion Mikkel Kesslers fight against the American Andre Ward in a battle in the Super Six tournament straight from Las Vegas.

The photographer Thomas Sjørup managed to publish 26 images before the match suddenly stopped by the doctors as Mikkel Kessler incurred an eye injury. Among the outstanding photos you’ll find the legendary Metallica drummer Lars Ulrich cheering for his fellow countryman.ekstra_web

I slutet av augusti åkte Shoot It Live tillsammans med Canon för att träffa en massa tidningar i Köpenhamn för att promota LIVE publicering, Danskarna överraskade oss genom att vara väldigt intresserade och visade flera kreativa (men dessvärre inte så framgångsrika) försök till LIVE publicering de tidigare gjort. Det var såklart väldigt kul att se att våra grannar i söder är så intresserade av LIVE publicering.

Det tog inte lång tid innan Ekstra Bladet, som är en av Skandinaviens ledande tidningar, signade upp och blev Shoot It Live’s första danska kund. Och de har nyligen gjort sin första live bevakning med Shoot It Live.

I sann Ekstra Bladet style sparkade de igång sin första LIVE bevakning storskaligt när de bevakade boxningsvärldsmästaren Mikkel Kesslers fight mot amerikanen Andre Ward i Super Six turneringen i glammiga Las Vegas.

Fotografen Thomas Sjørup lyckats publicera 26 bilder innan matchen plötsligt stoppades av läkare när Mikkel Kessler fick en ögonskada. Bland Thomas bilder hittar man Metallicas legendariska trummis Lars Ulrich hejades på sin landsman.
