    nbc1 If you are attending MIX 2010, be sure to plan to come to Jason Suess’s session on Tuesday where he’ll demonstrate the RCE, a Silverlight video editing application. We worked closely with Microsoft, NBC and Canadian TV to create this application that broadcast editors used in the recent Vancouver Winter Olympics to create highlights and online replays of Olympic events.

    Built upon the Composite Application Guidance for WPF and Silverlight (aka PRISM), the application is modular and extensible, allowing you to easily use it with custom content systems and workflows. Hope to see you there at Jason’s session!

    This session will provide an overview and technical details of the Silverlight Rough Cut Editor.  This open source tool provides real time editing for Silverlight Smooth Streaming content, and has been used to create content for high profile events such as the 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympics and Sunday Night Football.  Content publishers can use this tool to create real-time highlights, control dynamic meta-data (ad insertions and content meta-data), and create a modular approval & publishing workflow for live and on demand media content (CMS integration).  This session will review the core architecture (modularity, UI composition, services, and data providers) and detail how this tool is being used to meet the needs of content providers worldwide.
