Today I updated my Surface Demo  (original source from Silverlight examples ). Well, there are only some small changes since last beta 1.1. So I have added a DeepZoom  control (MultiScaleImage) to the demo :

To prepare my laptop for the next weeks I reinstalled my last image to get rid of all the beta software I tried the last months.

In one of my last posts  I wrote about the Silverlight Surface  demo of the "photo table". If you had a look on the live demo  you only see images, no video. I have added this because it is a very great idea to do it with Silverlight and the high media support inside.
