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.

Shoot It Live is a service intended for websites, where on-the-field photographers publish photos of current events live as they unfold, from any location with 3G coverage. Shoot It Live / Voogly AB (previously Livebloggen) was founded 2008 and is today used by Scandinavia’s largest newspapers in their online publications.

GOLD in live publishing

First came Charlotte Kalla then came Björn Ferry
The 31 year old Björn Ferry from Storuman advanced from a eighth place and was able to take a Olympic gold with a 16.5-second lead. Aftonbladet’s photographer Andreas Bardell was once again in the right place at the right time and was able to live publish photos to Aftonbladet.se during the race.

Andreas used Shootitlive for the first time in the summer of 2009 during the World Cup in Berlin, where he was the first photographer in the World to publish photos of Usain Bolts 200m world record. During the first days of the Olympics in Canada, he was able to repeat this not once but twice. He became the first photographer to publish photos from the gold medal race and of the Swedish Olympic heroes. Photos that have already become part of the sporting history.

– 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!

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.
