The Republican National Convention has tapped Microsoft to provide a range of technology services during the 2012 convention in Tampa, Fla.

Microsoft will be the RNC's "Official Innovation Provider," and will provide services like Skype video communication, Kinect, and other technology and consulting.

"Technology is changing the way we plan and conduct conventions," convention CEO William Harris said in a statement. "We are working with Microsoft to identify new ways to improve the convention experience for not only attendees in Tampa, but interested individuals across the country."

Last week the RNC announced a partnership with Google for live streaming videos as well as use other Google technology to publicize the events.
