About Us

Mediate Solutions Ltd is a broadcast consultancy focused on assisting large broadcasters on major process and technology change projects. This typically begins with analysing the problem, inefficiencies or opportunities, designing the solution and working with international solution vendors, developers and testers to implement the solution. This process culminates in training the users and ongoing support of the solutions implemented to ensure it remains a success for its entire lifetime as part of the guarantee of the high standard of service we provide.
We believe in honesty, integrity and the highest level of service for our clients. Mediate Solutions has a strong reputation and partnerships in London, Stockholm and LA, as well as links elsewhere in the UK and Europe. We have worked with all major broadcasters, including the BBC and BSkyB on their largest change projects.
We currently have staff on multiple projects, project managing a large innovative hybrid cloud solution for a client, performing strategic consultancy and supporting live cloud-based production systems.

About Me: Damon Neale

I have over 10 years experience in the Media Industry, working in Production, Business and New Media Technology.

For the past 5 years I have worked as a Senior Consultant, Solution Architect and Systems Integrator with the most complex formats such as video and graphics in the most challenging area of broadcast. I have played a key role on the largest and most complex technology change projects in the broadcast industry for the biggest broadcasters including the BBC, BSkyB and Sony Pictures Television. I am also a professional photographer, videographer, editor and graphic designer with a deep understanding of the respective workflows.

I apply these skills, knowledge and experience to projects to ensure that the solutions delivered will work for the end user and deliver the required results to the business.

I also enjoy photography, acrobatics, scuba-diving, skiing and sci-fi!

What Can I Do For You?

I am a project intermediary, liaising and translating between the business stakeholders, end users and solution development / delivery teams to mediate a solution that achieves the desired business benefits while remaining fit for purpose for the end users. Over the past 5 years I have been hired as an Analyst, Consultant, Technical Project Manager, Solution Architect or Systems Integrator to fulfil this important role to ensure a common understanding, that all parts of the solution align and continue in the same direction towards a common goal.

I industrialise the production process by utilising the latest technology and business processes, simplifying unnecessarily complex tasks and automating workflows. This allows teams to deliver content in new ways and to more platforms whilst freeing up user time to focus on the creative process.

I also assist in industry research and defining the strategy to launch/improve new products and services into the industry.

If you need someone capable to assist with your project, big or small, I have in-depth knowledge of media formats and workflows with experience on a variety of change projects.
