"Microsoft looks forward to working together to provide customers with the highest quality interactive experiences with Silverlight and IIS Smooth Streaming," said Steve Sklepowich, director for Silverlight at Microsoft, in a statement.

Other initial CDP participants include Adobe and Cisco Systems.
