The Microsoft MIX conference is in full swing in a little city in Nevada right now, and our sister site Visit MIX07 has been Joshua Allen’s soapbox to bring the show beyond Vegas. The technological marvel of the show has been Silverlight. The CBS Digital Media group has built an application for media consumption that could aptly be described as FutureTV. Moving through user-generated content that includes rich metadata is a seamless viewing experience, even with targeted advertising integrated. The kids here have worked long and hard to provide incredible and futuristic online experiences. The Netflix video-on-demand player was combines your online experience with movie-viewing in a way that is simply amazing. Even Major League Baseball has got into the business in an attempt to provide baseball fans with an aggressive online experience. The way in which MLB.com shows off live games has changed drastically since they started in 2002 thanks to Microsoft. The new Silverlight MLB site player provides the smoothest presentation of baseball’s ocean of statistics and multiple simultaneous sporting events anywhere.
