SURF Communication Solutions Announces Support for Microsoft Silverlight

SURF's flagship SURF Engine and TranSURF systems fully support Silverlight to power video systems for high capacity delivery to all screens.

Yokneam, Israel(04 May 2010)

SURF Communication Solutions (www.surf-com.com), a leading provider of video and voice enabling technologies, today announced its support for Microsoft Silverlight.  SURF's flagship SURF Engine and TranSURF systems fully support Silverlight to power video systems for high capacity delivery to all screens.

Avi Fisher, SURF's CTO explained, "The demand for video across all screens has never been higher and continues to grow exponentially.  Experts have forecast that video over IP will account for more than 91 percent of global consumer traffic by 2013, and by that time almost 64 percent of the world's mobile data traffic will be video.  In order to support this growing demand, system developers need to integrate platforms that will provide high-capacity transcoding, transrating and enrichment in real-time.  SURF's work with Silverlight facilitates this need."

"Microsoft is pleased SURF Communication Solutions has invested early in supporting Silverlight and the next-generation application development platform," said Steve Sklepowich, director for Silverlight at Microsoft Corp. "Products like TranSURF and the SURF Engine help developers use their existing skills to create unique experiences that run across many and varied devices."
