The company says that its livestream of William and Kate’s wedding topped 300,000 concurrent viewers at 6 a.m. ET on Friday morning. CEO Max Haot tells us that he expects “at least 2 million” unique viewers by the time the broadcast is done. Livestream partnered with the Associated Press, UK Press Association, CBS and Entertainment Tonight for its coverage.
Akamai reports that the event broke broader live streaming records as well. A representative for the company — whose network hosts some of the web’s largest news sites — reports that “concurrent live streams of Royal Wedding on Akamai surpassed the 1.6M peak set by World Cup in June of 2010.”
However, the event does not appear to be the biggest news event in web history. While the 4.6 million page views per minute reported on the news sites Akamai delivers content for this morning surpass the total for Barack Obama’s presidential election victory, they fall well short of the 10.3 million page views per minute record set last June when a World Cup qualifying match and the longest Wimbledon match in history took place simultaneously.

Livestream’s CEO Max Haot says he’s expecting “at least 2 million” viewers tuning in by the time the broadcast is complete.
Not only has the royal wedding broke records for the company live stream, but it’s broken Internet live streaming records in general, and according to reports, its “concurrent live streams of Royal Wedding on Akamai surpassed the 1.6M peak set by World Cup in June of 2010.”
Impressive! Then again, this doesn’t surprise us!
Who WOULDN’T want to tune in for such an exciting, momentous occasion???
Did U watch a live stream of the royal wedding on the Internet?
P.S. Be sure to watch Perez as he hosts “Will + Kate Forever,” the only royal wedding special worth seeing, airing tonight, April 29th at 7pm/6c on Wedding Central and also at 9pm/8c on WE tv.
BOSTON, March 24, 2011 /PRNewswire/ – Berkleemusic, the online continuing education division of Boston’s renowned Berklee College of Music, and Grammy®-award winning guitar virtuoso Steve Vai, have set the Guinness® World Record for the world’s largest online guitar lesson. Held at leading streaming media platform Livestream Studios in New York City on March 3rd, Vai brought together nearly 7,000 members of the international guitar community in a celebration of online music education. Guinness certified the record based on Berklee having recruited 4,455 students over the first 15 minutes to the lesson. Berkleemusic also announced a donation of $7,000—one dollar for each student certified as taking part in the lesson—to the Steve Vai Online Scholarship Fund at Berkleemusic, which rewards and assists outstanding students.
“I’m very happy and proud to announce that Berklee College of Music was officially awarded the Guinness World Record for the world’s largest online guitar lesson,” said Berkleemusic Chief Marketing Officer Stefanie Henning. ”This was an amazing collaboration of all the teams here at Berkleemusic with tremendous support from Berklee College of Music President Roger Brown, the College faculty and students, and the day’s guest of honor, Steve Vai.”
Berkleemusic and Steve Vai have also co-authored a new twelve-week online course: Steve Vai Guitar Techniques. The course helps students gain a deep understanding of Vai’s playing styles, repertoire, techniques, and musical concepts from anywhere in the world, and to incorporate their learnings into their own playing. The next course begins on April 4th, 2011. For more information regarding enrollment information, and sample instructions, visit Berkleemusic.com.
Vai, a Berklee alumnus and passionate advocate for music education and exploration, is finishing a new solo album and preparing for a world tour to coincide with its fall release.
“I hope this record encourages players to continue to cultivate their own unique style and spirit on the guitar,” Vai says. “I think this record really showcases the interest that exists in guitar education worldwide. It was a true pleasure working with an institution like Berkleemusic, who shares my interest in helping to bring more skilled musicians into the world.”

For broadcasters seeking to provide a high quality live stream, untethered to an Internet connection and a PC, Livestream has just introduced a device from Teradek called the Cube.
Yesterday we visited CEO Max Haot for an explanation of the new device which works with the Verizon 4G LTE nextwork and gets uploads at better than 8 mbps where the network is available.
The Cube, which attached to top of the camera, is an Internet device which is programmed to stream directly to a user’s Livestream channel. There is no need for a PC. Very cool.
The device costs from $1600 to $2000 depending on options. It works with WiFi. It only works on the Verizon 4G network, but will expand to other service providers in the U.S. and abroad, Haot says.
