Picture of the week S01E03-04

I didn´t give you a “pic of the week” last week so I´m obliged to give you another double post.
Ok, here it goes!

Sandviken Swedish Champions

Making the most of existing resources is something we strongly encourage. Gefle Dagblad and Arbetarbladet did just that by using live publishing in an innovate way. By allowing the photographer Britt Mattsson to simultaneously publish a live photo feed using Shootitlive to both GD.se and Arbetarbladet.se they saved time, money and resources. Yay!

The fans were torn appart by excitement as the final whistle blew and it stood clear that Sandviken was the Swedish Champions of 2011. While the ice was filled with cheering fans the Sandviken forward Chris Edlund only had eyes for his girlfriend.

Mellodifestivalen grand finale

Last weekend the grand finale of Mellodifestivalen took place in Globen, Stockholm. Having followed this week after week we finally could see all the celebs let go of their inhibitions. The Aftonbladet photographer Magnus Sandberg gave us a detailed live photo feed throughout the night as the champagne flow at the after party.

Danny Saucedo didn´t reach the whole way to Eurovision Song Contest in Germany. This didn´t seem to affect his mood as he was seen cracking a bottle of champagne at the after party.

What a week this has been!
This week has really been serving us with a number of highlights and many amazing photos. To name a few we have Marit Bjørgen who made history by taking three WC gold medals in a row. Petter Northug completely humiliated Marcus Hellner by slowing down and crossing the finish line sideways. Petter really is an impressive athlete and a brilliant showman!

Our Finnish friends Iltalehti and Ilta-Sanomat, brought us the Miss Finland 2011 gala. Aftonbladet, Expressen and DN took us behind the scenes of Mellodifestivalen.

But this week’s picture is when Canada took their first ever men´s cross country gold medal.

Devon Kershaw and Alex Harvey took Canada's first World Championship gold in men's cross country. Alex Harvey sprinted down Ola Vigen Hattestad and silenced the home crowd at the finish line.

This photo was a part of Dagbladet’s Ski WC live coverage. DB.no integrated the Shootitlive json playlist to display photos (live as they were taken) in their custom-built live blog application. Using the Shootitlive API, customers can integrate the feed of photos and video clips into a custom application or a live blog application such as Coveritlive or Scribblelive.

But 99% of our customers are satisfied with using our embedded Media Player – copy & paste FTW:-)

A busy weekend! #os2010 #mel2010

It has been a busy weekend in the name of live coverage.

The Olympics kicked off with the opening ceremony at 6pm on Friday evening in Vancouver, Canada. The Aftonbladet photographer Andreas Bardell live published photos during the Swedish medal hope Helena Jonssons biathlon race. Regardless of her flawless shooting she didnt hold up against her opponents and finished in twelfth place. See the pictures here.

On Saturday at 8pm it was time for the second race in the Melodifestivalen. Aftonbladet.se live published their first photo at 19:46:58 pm and didn’t stop until 02:59:33 am.
The Aftonbladet.se visitors could enjoy 193 photos throughout the evening, night and early morning with more than 70 photos straight from the after-party

GD.se and Arbetarbladet.se utilized the Shoot It Live advantage to embed the Shoot It Live player on several sites. The photographer Madelene Söderblom live published photos from Melodifestivalen straight to the landing page on both GD.se and Arbetarbladet.se

A live-picture is worth more than thousand words!

February is a busy month with many events happening, which means many events with live photo coverage. Shoot It Lives users will continue to send live photos from events such as OS, Melodifestivalen and Let’s Dance.

Det har varit en galen och händelserik helg som gått i direktpubliceringens tecken.

Ingen har väl missat att OS i Vancouver har kickat igång. Aftonbladets fotograf Andreas Bardell bevakade det svenska medaljhoppet i skidskytte Helena Jonsson och direktpublicerade bilder under hela loppet. Trots att hon var felfri i skyttet så orkade hon inte med i spåren och slutade på en tolfte plats. Se Andreas bilder här.

I lördags var det dags för den andra deltävlingen i Melodifestivalen.
Aftonbladet.se direktpublicerade sin första bild från arenan i Sandviken klockan 19:46:58 och fortsatte kontinuerligt fram till klockan 02:59:33.
Aftonbladet.se:s besökare fick ta del av hela 193 livebilder under kvällen samt från den blöta efterfesten.

GD.se och Arbetarbladet.se lät sin fotograf Madelene Söderblom utnyttja fördelarna med Shoot It Lives direktpubliceringssystem. Hon skickade bilder direkt till båda sajterna samtidigt.

En livebild säger mer än 1000 ord!

Februari är en händelserik månad vilket betyder mycket direktpublicering. Shoot It Lives användare kommer fortsätta att skicka livebilder från bland annat OS, Melodifestivalen och Let’s Dance i samma rappa tempo.
