Shoot It Live hit a record in use during the Royal Wedding
Over 25 sites was using Shoot It Live to display live photo feeds, and most sites displayed the player on the landing page, which of course generates a lot of traffic. Our cooperation with Scanpix was a success and we hope to offer similar services in the future.
And in regards to traffic – it was huge!
We have since last Friday pushed out over 60 TB data. That’s 60.000 GigaByte data, consisting of small jpeg images with an average size of 30 KiloBytes each. At the same time we had over 1.7 billion requests (1,704,897,046 HTTP Requests)
In addition to all the photo feeds from the Royal wedding, both Aftonbladet, Politiken and Ekstra Bladet were using Shoot It Live from the World Cup in South Africa.
Aftonbladet also ran ads in the Shoot It Live player for the first time. Since April Shoot It Live supports Videoplaza Monetizer and can show ads as preroll, mideroll or overlay. And because it’s Videoplaza, it’s smart, beautiful and outstanding. I do not know whether or not Aftonbladet or Videoplaza want to go out with statistics on ads served, but I know it was a huge amount.
Among the +25 sites that used Shoot It Live during the weekend there were sites in Germany, Finland, France, Denmark, Norway and Sweden.
