Media Production is committed to innovation. We believe that media should be touchable, interactive and available to anyone, anywhere. For the last 10 years we have aggressively pursued cutting edge media delivery systems that allow our viewers to see and hear our message from their television, projector, desktop, laptop, cell phone, or table. When we started producing content for the web and social media, we frequently had viewership in the single digits. We now average over a 1000 visitors per live event.
