NBC Olympics

Bill Gates announces at CES that NBCOlympics.com will be powered by Silverlight. This is pretty good news for adopting Silverlight as it will be installed on more individual PCs.

Here are the important notes from the press release, "As a result of this unprecedented alliance, "NBCOlympics.com on MSN" will deliver: 

  • 2,200 hours of live event video coverage, with more than 20 simultaneous live video streams at peak times
  • More than 3,000 hours of on-demand video content including full-event replays, highlights, features, interviews and encore packages.
  • An "enhanced playback mode" powered by Silverlight that gives users the choice of a high-quality full screen viewing experience that is as good or better than anything on the Internet today
  • Unique metadata overlays powered by Silverlight that enable fans to have access not only to high quality video, but also to the wealth of related content including results, statistics, comprehensive bios, rules and expert analysis from NBC's Olympic digital media team in Beijing
  • Live video alerts so fans can stay connected to the events and teams they care most about
  • Social networking features that enable fans to share aspects of their Olympic experience with friends
