Maximum TV just launched an amazing Silverlight site for US-based Spanish language speakers as their prime audience. This is an amazing ad-supported experience that uses IIS Smooth Streaming. One thing that I really like is the live video wall that they created that uses mouse over to determine which audio to play back. In the image below, all 12 videos are playing back simultaneously with great quality.
Here’s what they used to create it:
- Silverlight 3
- Microsoft Internet Information Server
- Microsoft SQL Server 2008
- Microsoft Expression Encoder 3
- Microsoft Expression Blend 3
- Visual Studio 2008
I first met the team from Maximum TV at the NAB Show earlier this year in Las Vegas and they showed me the prototype running beautifully on a tiny netbook. I expect to see great things from this company!
