With the royal wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton just a few hours away, a local company has taken the role of bringing the fun and party of the wedding to the web.
Metia, a digital marketing agency has developed a video player to stream the event for MSN starting friday 3 a.m. PDT.
The MSN video player intends to create a large social gathering by featuring live commentary and real time updates on Facebook and Twitter.
“The concept we tried to focus on there is, in the UK there are a lot of people who will be having street parties and general kind of festivities (to celebrate the wedding), so we tried to create that kind of global online street party online,” said Andrew Martin, vice president of the the North American division of Metia.
With the digital media bringing every event at your fingertips, the royal wedding is expected to have a global audience of 2 billion people.
