Halo3 HD videos on silverlight

  • Comments 0

The new high definition live action videos for Halo3 are  available in Silverlight at http://halo3.msn.com/videoshd.aspx

My observations:

  • Check the video playback quality ...  wow!! 
  • The player (transports, chapters, closed captions, etc).. looks like a straight up customization from the skins shipping with Expression Media Encoder; kudos to that team on a highly reusable template ...  
  • The videos are stored and delivered via Silverlight Streaming services...  very nice!!

Congrats to those who built the site and the teams that deliver the technologies that made it possible!
