Barack Obama’s inauguration as US president next week will be broadcast online using Microsoft’s Silverlight browser-based media player.
Microsoft said Friday that Obama’s Presidential Inaugural Committee had selected Silverlight to stream live coverage of his swearing-in from its site, scheduled for Tuesday in Washington DC.
It’s the second Obama outing for Silverlight. Obama’s speech accepting his party’s nomination as candidate for US president was streamed via Silverlight from the Democratic National Convention last August.
And this is the third high-profile win for Silverlight, which last year streamed online coverage of the Olympics for US broadcasting giant NBC.
