Hi Please check the below:

Silverlight is a new cross-browser, cross-platform implementation of the .NET Framework for building and delivering the next generation of media experiences and Rich Interactive Applications(RIA) for the web. It runs in all popular browsers, including Microsoft Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Apple Safari, Opera. The plugin required to run Silverlight is very small in size hence gets installed very quickly.

It is combination of different technolgoies into a single development platform that allows you to select tools and the programming language you want to use. Silverlight integrates seamlessly with your existing Javascript and ASP.NET AJAX code to complement functionality which you have already created.

Silverlight aims to compete with Adobe Flash and the presentation components of Ajax. It also competes with Sun Microsystems' JavaFX, which was launched a few days after Silverlight.

Please visit the below URL, where you can find the simple examples and good explanation about this concept.

Please let me know if you need any training videos on this concept.

Silverlight is a new Web presentation technology that is created to run on a variety of platforms. It enables the creation of rich, visually stunning and interactive experiences that can run everywhere: within browsers and on multiple devices and desktop operating systems (such as the Apple Macintosh). In consistency with WPF (Windows Presentation Foundation), the presentation technology in Microsoft .NET Framework 3.0 (the Windows programming infrastructure), XAML (eXtensible Application Markup Language) is the foundation of the Silverlight presentation capability.

Silverlight is:

(1) A programming model for developing and distributing rich Internet applications (RIA) that use graphics, animations or video within the .NET framework.

(2) A plug-in from Microsoft for delivering media created with Silverlight. The Silverlight plug-in is both cross-browser and cross-platform. Notably, this makes it interoperable with Apple's OS X and both the Safari and Firefox Web browsers, along with Windows and Internet Explorer.

Silverlight allows the distribution of multimedia as an integral part of an application, in full screen and with a support for partial high definition (HD) video at 720p resolution.

Silverlight's introduction can be interpreted as a direct challenge to Adobe's Flash application, with some industry pundits going as far as to call it a "Flash-killer." As Flash dominates the market for rich Internet media creation software, Microsoft will have a significant hurdle to clear in convincing both the development and designer communities to adopt the new platform.

Silverlight aims to compete with Adobe Flash and the presentation components of Ajax. It also competes with Sun Microsystems' JavaFX, which was launched a few days after Silverlight.

For regular internet users, Silverlight is a browser plug-in that supports video, audio and animations.

For web developers, Silverlight offers much more. Silverlight supports video and audio files without need of much programming. It allows them to handle events from web pages (like handle start/end of video playing etc)

Minimum Requirements:
for windowsXP sp2 Internet Explorer 6.0 or more
