The Star Awards is, of course, MediaCorp TV's annual gala event celebrating and recognizing Singapore's own TV celebrities.
This year, for the first time in the show's history, the live TV broadcast will be complemented by an online experience. The Star Awards "LIVE" Update site will provide supplementary event experience with simultaneous updates of on-scene and backstage media content (blogs, photos and videos.)
Microsoft Silverlight is used to deliver an interactive photo and video viewing experience over the web, integrating with MediaCorp's content management back-end.
The MediaCorp IT team did a great job -- learning about Silverlight and delivering a great looking site in about two months. Thanks also to my erstwhile colleague John Eldridge who worked closely with the MediaCorp team .
