On October 29th, Billboard will broadcast the first of a thirteen-week series of live concerts scheduled for Thrusdays nights. This series uses Microsoft technology and can be watched worldwide, free of charge.
On the backend, it uses IIS Live Smooth Streaming running on Windows Server 2008 and Silverlight on the client side providing access to the signal from five High-definition cameras. The experience is further enhanced by integrating Facebook, Twitter and Flickr to the user interface.
The first of these concerts starts at 6.00 pm PST (1.00 am GMT) and will count with the presence of R. Kelly. Future artists scheduled to participate are Imogen Heap, Nora Jones, Alicia Keys, Usher, Daughtry and John Mayer.
