Ramblings from another nerd on the grid

Keep reading to learn more about the new features, or install it now.
This IIS Media Services release centers on new functionality for the live and on-demand IIS Smooth Streaming components. Building on over two years of industry usage, IIS Smooth Streaming has become the primary HTTP adaptive streaming technology for delivering content online. Broadcasters worldwide have used it to deliver on-demand content and live events, such as the World Cup, Sunday Night Football, the Tour de France, and the 2010 Winter Olympics.
With another year of customer wins and input on what would make it even better, the feature set in IIS Media Services 4.0 addresses some specific themes, focusing primarily on expanded iPhone support and a broad set of new live streaming features.
