About High Green Media

Media business technology expertise

High Green Media is a specialist consultancy for the broadcast and media technology industry.

We work with broadcast and media companies and their technology and service suppliers to provide strategic business and technology advice, research and content creation.

Founded by Rob Ambrose in 2016, High Green Media delivers high-quality projects effectively and efficiently—work that would cost 3-4 times more, and wouldn’t be as good, it was delivered by a traditional “big” consulting company.

Where we focus

Our work enables clients to respond to the ever-changing and challenging digital media market and falls into three main areas:

  • Strategic business-technology advice for broadcasters and media companies including operational transformation, technology vendor selection and technology due diligence.
  • Market strategy and content for media technology suppliers including custom research on brand positioning and market perception, white papers, and marketing and pre-sales support.
  • Strategy and events for industry organisations, including exec producing the high-profile IBC conference, and architect of the definitive media tech industry model, the BaM Content Chain.

We work directly with clients, and also in association with leading industry names including Ampere Analysis and Cognizant.

Our encyclopaedic knowledge of the industry spans the entire content chain from camera lens to consumer screen with an understanding of a whole array of technology suppliers and content companies. We have particular expertise in media business systems, workflow, content supply chain and cloud.

We’re in contact with a huge network of industry though leaders around the world, and have a deep understanding of the dynamics of the consumer media market, meaning all our projects are rooted in the realities of the current media tech industry—underpinned by an effective, proven methodology.
