Microsoft at NAB 2009: IIS Smooth Streaming Released to Web

Last day here at NAB in Las Vegas, so it’s a perfect time to take a look at what we’ve done at NAB this year. Ben Waggoner has put together an excellent summary on his blog:

So the big news is: IIS Media Services 2.0 (featuring on-demand Smooth Streaming) has been officially released to Web, a mere 6 months after first announced at Digital Hollywood as a technology preview! We expect IIS Media Services 3.0 (featuring Live Smooth Streaming, currently in beta) to be released later this year.

Now we watch Smooth Streaming completely change the rules of media delivery on the Web.
