Sky News claims world record for general election live video streams

Sky News has claimed a Guinness World Record for the most concurrent web video streams from a single live event.

The broadcaster carried online feeds from 138 locations on the night of the 7 May UK general election using technology from LiveU.

Sky News deputy head of technology Richard Pattison said: "Getting the confirmation email was fantastic and an enormous relief.

“I had to provide a great deal of evidence to the Guinness World Records team to validate the attempt so I was slightly worried that what evidence we had might not meet their stringent criteria, but in the end it only took them a couple of days to ratify the attempt, which is great news."
