Microsoft’s Silverlight, which will power online video for NBC Sports Olympics coverage, will have a number DVR-type functionalities and will offer bloggers and others the opportunity to grab the embed code of certain videos.
NBC is not permitting the sharing of competition clips but of the “color,” personality, feature video coverage of the Olympics.
We spoke with Microsoft’s Jason Suess about the implementation of Silverlight for the Olympics. He is principal technology evangelist at Microsoft. This is the second of our two interviews with him. We interviewed in Redmond via Skype.
