Dom Robinson is an independent consultant trading as 'D2Consulting'
He first got involved in the sector when, while working as an event promoter, he produced a webcast with Netscape and the Ministry of Sound in 1996.

He has Professed as a Streaming Media Consultant and Pioneer and Webcaster since the end of 1996. He has worked for many of the largest webcast consumers, service providers and technology providers in the sector and likes 'big himself up' as being at the forefront of the industry.

Over the years he has worked with a number of ventures spanning all layers of the vertical markets around streaming, from telecoms and routing, through CDN, Serving, Management, integration, front end, ASIC, Set Top Box, DRM, Payment, Advertising, production, editing and development.
He is a proper little know it all :)
From 2004 until 2008 he was Founder and CTO, and then from 2008 until 2010 he was Chief Executive Officer at Global-MIX (a UK CDN specializing in Multicast and Live content delivery on the Internet), taking it to winning the StreamingMediaGlobal.com 'Best Delivery Network in Europe' Readers Choice Award, before winding the company down voluntarily after a very tough trading year.
He was added to StreamingMediaGlobal.com's Dream Team and the European Conferences 'Advisory Board' in 2009.
He speaks and and writes on streaming media technology for Broadcast Engineering, ISP World and Streamingmedia and other Information Today publications. He is helping to coordinate the 2010 European Content Delivery Summit.
He provides 'front-line' streaming journalism from his European based professional life. He is mad about streaming - particularly Live Streaming—and also enjoys evangelizing about it—he wants nothing more than people to take a deep interest in the industry and, above all, enjoy and benefit from streaming products and services.
Please leave him shouts (good and bad) by email (firstname.lastname@example.org email@example.com), on the comments with the articles or on the advanced list (where he spends a little too much time to be healthy!)
