    In this article you can read how NBC USA, CTV Canada, France TV, and NRK Norway have used Silverlight and Smooth Streaming technologies during the Winter Olympics.

    The 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver marked the sixth of seven consecutive Olympic Games broadcast by NBC Universal and presented the opportunity to build on the success of the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing. NBC teamed with premier technology vendors, led by Microsoft, to cover 4,485 hours of 2010 Winter Olympics events in HD via Microsoft Internet Information Services (IIS) Smooth Streaming to a video player based on Microsoft Silverlight. In addition to pleasing sports fans, the programming offered an audience of more than 15.8 million unique visitors to the many advertising partners of NBC. The exceptional capability of IIS Smooth Streaming and Silverlight technologies gave technology vendors the tools they needed to deliver midstream ads while providing an engaging experience for Olympics enthusiasts.

    Ola Karlsson has published this post in which he shares his experiences with Smooth Streaming development.

    Over the last year, a rather large part of my development work has included working with IIS Smooth Streaming, especially in relation to Silverlight. When I started looking at Smooth Streaming, about a year ago, there were not many places around the web where you could find Smooth streaming development related resources. And although the pictures is somewhat better today, there’s still not a whole lot of good material around, so I thought I’d try and putt together some posts sharing my experiences with Smooth Streaming development.

    Jit Ghosh has a great post about Smooth Streaming with Silverlight and adding context data to your video.

    There are two primary requirements for enabling a glitch-free viewing experience in Web-based, high-definition digital video delivery. First, the video provider needs to support high video delivery bit rates over the network. Second, the client computer needs to support continuous availability of processing capacity to decode the video at its fullest resolution.

    In this post Gavin Wignall announces that Metia have just finished producing not only one of the first ever Silverlight banners for MSN, but the first banner to incorporate Deepzoom and Smooth Streaming and be expandable.Image

    The Smooth Streaming allows users to view the video at the highest quality possible based on their internet connection and CPU speed. If the users connection drops to a slower speed during the video, the Smooth Streaming seamlessly adapts to keep the video stream consistent and free of buffering.

    Mike Ormond has put together a short video showing how easy it is to get started creating and delivering content with IIS Smooth Streaming.

    This takes you through a condensed version of the why, how and what do I need to do of Smooth Streaming. If you want to try it for yourself you’ll need either IIS 7.0 or 7.5 (so Windows Vista, 7 or Server 2008), Expression Encoder 3 with Smooth Streaming (unfortunately the trial download doesn’t support Smooth Streaming) and Silverlight for the Smooth Streaming enabled player.

  • Silverlight Featured in Sunday Night Football Extra

    John Papa announces that the NFL and NBC will be delivering the entire Sunday Night Football season by using Silverlight 3.0 and IIS Smooth Streaming.

    It’s just a few minutes into the opening night game and I am watching it side by side with my HD TV to get a comparison. The HD broadcast in Silverlight is quote impressive! But the features built into the Silverlight app are even more impressive. There is a chat window for fans, stats, videos, and game information on the right hand side of the video. There is also a button at the bottom named “Key Plays”. When clicked it displays an area that is reserved for recapping key plays in the game. The video, of course, has DVR features too.
