Mirror Image Internet, a leading provider of content delivery solutions powered by a patented global network, today announced that it will provide support for Microsoft Silverlight, a new cross-browser, cross-platform plug-in for delivering the next generation of media experiences and rich, interactive applications for the Web. The announcement was made this morning at the Streaming Media East Conference & Exposition taking place at the Hilton New York, NY.
Microsoft Silverlight, previously called Windows? Presentation Foundation Everywhere (WPF/E), integrates with existing Web technologies and assets to provide higher-quality experiences with lower costs for media delivery. Delivered to end-users through a seamless, fast installation, Silverlight offers consistent experiences to both Macintosh and Windows users on a variety of browsers including Internet Explorer, FireFox and Safari.

Hart, Vice President, Sales and Marketing at Mirror Image Internet. ?With today?s consumers expecting immediate, uninterrupted access to online content and rich media, Mirror Image is constantly keeping pace with new technical developments so that our patented global network can deliver unprecedented reliability and performance, regardless of a user?s platform, operating system or browser.?
