Move Networks, the little start-up in Utah, has impressed many in the industry with super high quality streaming technology that does not appear to hog too much bandwidth. To see how great it looks, check out ABC.com — that’s the Move player on the videos.
Last month, Microsoft announced an alliance with Move to integrate its new Silverlight Web plug-in.
Earlier this week at NAB in Las Vegas, Microsoft gave the first demonstration and the purple channel was there.
Microsoft’s Steve Sklepowich gave us a little preview. He describes it as a "DVD-like interactive experience." The implementation of Move and Silverlight will be announced soon, Steve said. I bet we’ll see it on the Summer Olympics which will stream in the U.S. on MSN using Silverlight.
