Mainstream Media is the go-to company for Streaming Services in Chicago. We have been working with them over the last 7 years and it has been a real inspiration to see them grow into the mainstay they are today. All of which is do to their constant attention to detail, clarity in communication, and vigor with which they approach ever single job. Truly professional and constantly looking for the best possible solution for each client. We fully recommend them!Craig, Equipment Rental and Video Production

Village Enterprise' experience with Mainstream Media was 5-star, in every respect! The Mainstream Media team was available, responsive, and took great care to understand the priorities for Village Enterprise - from attendee engagement, to budget, to re-usable resources, and everything in between. I would highly recommend engagement with the Mainstream Media team.Christine, Non-Profit
