The Presidential Inaugural Committee (PIC) has selected Microsoft Silverlight technology to enable live and on-demand video streaming of the official inauguration swearing-in ceremony on the PIC Web site at http://www.pic2009.org. As part of its efforts to hold the most open and accessible inauguration in history, on Saturday, Jan. 17, the PIC will also stream video of a Baltimore event on the Whistle Stop Tour that will take President-elect Barack Obama and Vice President-elect Joe Biden to Washington, D.C., from Philadelphia.

Meanwhile, CNN is going to use Microsoft Photosynth to record the inauguration for posterity.  It’s asking anyone attending to send them a photo which they’ll then input into Photosynth to create 3D experience of the inauguration.
