  • Dave McIlroy is widely recognized as a pioneer of the streaming media industry.  He was pivotally responsible for establishing the level of success presently enjoyed by INSINC, a well known Burnaby-based service provider.  As Director of Media Technology he built the company quickly from a startup in 1998 to a well respected national service provider a couple of years later.  He then worked diligently to establish a stout international reputation as well.  Now highly sought after as an Internet Broadcast Expert, Dave's company which is based in Vancouver, BC, Canada has accumulated many successes and the respect of industry leaders.

    Dave pioneered live audio play by play webcasts for sporting events by simplifying the technical processes that delivered high quality programming to their online audience.  He went on to do the same for live video webcasts launched internationally from remote locations by MCSI in 2001.  This was accomplished by leveraging the easy-to-use interface he created.

     As the recognized leader in webcasts for sports leagues in Canada and the US, Dave established the first viable Pay-Per-View offerings thereby transforming the industry into a profitable entity by allowing his clients to not only offset the expense of a webcast but to actually generate positive revenue from subscriptions.

     All and all, this imaginative and hard working pioneer of the streaming media industry has earned and richly deserves his impeccable reputation for innovation and quality customer service.

    Clients are saying...

    "It was a pleasure to again work with Dave McIlroy and his crew who produced the Internet Broadcast for the Major Midget All-star Game. Dave operates professionally, knows our demands are high and always delivers beyond our expectations. I highly recommend his services."

    ... Barry Petrachenko | BC Hockey Executive Director

    "Dave McIlroy approached me and asked if I would like to place an ad about SPI Hockey in front of some Internet Broadcasts his company was producing. He told me that the target audience were hockey fans, players and parents and that it was an excellent way to create awareness for my new web site SPIhockey.com and my hockey school. I had never done any advertising like this prior so I was not sure what to expect. Dave’s team produced the fifteen second video ad for SPI Hockey which played before every broadcast. He told me that it was seen about 3500 times in the span of a few weeks.
    As my phone began to ring and email arrived we asked how the callers and mailers had heard about us. Overwhelmingly the response was as a result of that fifteen second ad placed on HockeyBC’s Major Midget League playoff broadcasts.

    I am convinced that this is a powerful way to reach a highly targeted audience. The value for the response was exceptional. I would not hesitate to do this again or recommend to others who are trying to create awareness for their product or service."
