Dan Rayburn is recognised as the voice for the streaming and online video industry. He is a principal analyst at Frost & Sullivan and a prolific blogger and author. In a recent investment report he wrote:
"the worldwide video CDN revenue will be a little more than $400 million in 2008, increasing at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of more than 30%...we expect the worldwide video CDN revenue to grow to more than $1.4 billion by 2012".

"But one thing ties them all together: A passion for online video that goes beyond merely advancing their own personal and professional agendas to pushing the entire industry forward. They're all superstars, but they're all team players, too."
