Not only the traditional media brace themselves for the announcement of the marriage between the English Prince William and Kate Middleton. Mobile operators expect to process tens of millions of photo uploads in a matter of hours. And Youtube also broadcasts the event live.

Perhaps the live stream from London will be the biggest broadcast that Youtube Live will receive in its still short existence. The international interest in the princely wedding is immense. 8, 000 journalists are walking around the English capital.

The live broadcast of the YouTube Symphony Orchestra was a dress rehearsal for the Google subsidiary. Then it had to process 33 million streams simultaneously, of which 2.8 million were generated via mobile phones.

Youtube involves the video images of the BBC and puts them live, without the spoken commentary.

In another way, Google is emphatically present at the wedding ceremony. IT company Accenture was appointed by the English royal family to create the website Officialroyalwedding2011.org. That site is fully managed from Google App Engine.

English mobile operators have doubled the capacity of their digital infrastructure. They have teams ready to increase the mobile bandwidth if necessary. Telecom company O2 gambles that it will surely have to stow 65 million photos tomorrow by the mobile broadband pipes in the air.
