NASDAQ's popular stock ticker display — seen by hundreds of thousands of investors daily at the NASDAQ MarketSite in Times Square and used as backdrop for its television broadcast to a variety of broadcast outlets worldwide — "is getting a hi-definition redesign with Microsoft Silverlight. NASDAQ OMX selected Microsoft Silverlight for its ability to dynamically connect to standard Web services for content and data as well as its ability to easily extend to the organization's other platforms in the future, such as the Web or mobile devices," revealed Microsoft.

The newly launched NASDAQ stock ticker can be seen daily as the NASDAQ Market Site's studio and will also be displayed in the lobby at Broadway and 43rd Street in New York.
