Hot on the heels of Microsoft’s successful collaboration with Move Networks to provide live, Silverlight-powered coverage of the Democratic National Committee Convention, neither company is showing signs of slowing down. Move Networks has already announced plans to build on the Microsoft media platform, and together, the two companies are hard at work on delivering the best user experience and delivery platform for media companies.
So what’s next for Microsoft Silverlight? Microsoft will be highlighting some of its latest Silverlight customer wins – including European customers France Television, iTV, L’EquipeTV, MSN UK, NRK, RTL, SBS, Setanta, and TF1 – this week at the International Broadcasting Convention (IBC) Conference in Amsterdam. The company will also be previewing H.264 support in Silverlight at the show, which means content owners will have even more choice and flexibility for delivering audio and video via the Web, broadcast and devices.
