Microsoft unveils Silverlight Video Playback Plug-in for Websites at NAB show

Microsoft unveils Silverlight Video Playback Plug-in for Websites at NAB show

Microsoft Silverlight Logo

[Best Syndication] Microsoft displayed their new plug-in called Silverlight at the National Association of Broadcaster (NAB) tradeshow in Las Vegas. NAB is running from April 14th through the 19th and focuses on all that is happening in the audio and video broadcasting industry.

Silverlight is a plug-in that will work on both Mac and PC compatible Web browsers. It is similar to Adobe Flash and is much better than Apple’s QuickTime.

In order to implement Silverlight into a website there is a toolkit called Expression Media that will help to deploy the content. Expression Media is comparable to Adobe’s Creative Suite 3 software. You can download a preview of Expression Media on Microsoft.com. Expression Media won’t be shipping until sometime in June.

DownLoad HD Movie In One Second - IBM Unveils 160 Gigabit per Second Optical Chip Set At Anaheim Fiber Optic Conference

Smaller Than Dime

(Best Syndication) Anaheim CA - IBM scientists announced a prototype optical transceiver chipset at the 2007 Optical Fiber Conference in Anaheim California on Monday. The new chipset is capable of reaching speeds at least eight times faster than the optical components available today, according to the company.

The chipset will move information at a rate of 160 Gigabits per second (or 160 billion bits of information in a single second). This breakthrough technology may allow for a lightning fast one second download of a high definition feature-length film. Compare this to 30 minutes or longer with current technology.

Optical technology uses light pulses rather than electrons. The idea is to combine this technology with fiber-optic cable technology to provide a “new era of high-speed connectivity that will transform communications, computing and entertainment.”

Apple TV Product is now Shipping - High Definition Widescreen Support - DVD player gone High-Tech

Apple TV Product is now Shipping - High Definition Widescreen Support - DVD player gone High-Tech

Apple TV

Technology is merging into multimedia center points and Apple TV is just another example of connecting the computer, internet, and television together. Apple TV is now shipping and it will make it more attractive and for people to watch internet downloaded movies, listen to music and look at you digital photos on your TV set. Apple describes their new product Apple TV as a DVD player of the future.

One thing that I can say about technology is that if it isn’t intuitive it won’t be used, and this time I think Apple TV is addressing a problem with people watching movies and videos on the internet. It just didn’t make sense at all to download a mega huge movie rental off the internet when you would have less stress going down to rent the video from your local video rental store.
