DNC powered by Silverlight and Move

After all the Olympics madness I nearly forgot the “other” big Silverlight video event happening right now: The Democratic National Convention.

Check it out at:

The DNC website is providing live streaming HD video coverage of the convention using Silverlight 2 Beta 2 and Move Networks plugins. This is a great example of Move providing their own adaptive streaming technology and integrating it with Silverlight. I don’t have the exact encoding specs available, but it looks like video is being streamed in true HD – at least 720p in full screen, as far as I can tell. It’s really amazing video quality – and it’s live!
