Royal Wedding Statistics

Shoot It Live delivered the live photo feed to The Swedish Royal Court

Shoot It Live delivered the live photo feed to The Swedish Royal Court

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.

Videoplaza ads
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.

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.
