quem trabalha em ambiente corporativo sabe o quanto Multicasting é uma mão na roda, permitindo servir vídeo para a empresa inteira sem sacrificar demais a infra-estrutura.

temos uma boa notícia: agora é possível, graças a uma tecnologia desenvolvida em parceria com a Microsoft, servir em Multicast.. em Silverlight:

This new Multicast Plug-in, developed in cooperation with Microsoft, allows enterprises for the first time to deliver live video broadcasts via multicast across the network to thousands of Silverlight-based players simultaneously. In addition to being delivered in Qumu’s commercial products, the plug-in components are also available to third party ISV’s and end-users as open source code on http://projectstarlight.codeplex.com/

viram só?  código aberto e tudo  :)   e o post original explica as diferenças entre Unicast e Multicasting:

veja quais sao as vantagens desse novo recurso:

Key Points for the Silverlight Multicast Plug-in:

  • Leverages the existing Windows Media Services (WMS) multicast infrastructure broadly deployed among Enterprises – no server or network changes required
  • Great example of how Silverlight is “Extensible by Design,” enabling partners to innovate and add value to their Silverlight-based solutions
  • Requires the install of a single ActiveX or NPAPI plug-in to the user’s desktop
  • Integrates transparently with Silverlight applications, no end-user action necessary
  • Works wherever Silverlight works - Mac and Windows, IE, Safari, and Firefox
  • Available as open source on Codeplex enabling other companies to develop their own commercial multicast products for Silverlight
