Anaheim, California (May 5, 2021) - Mohammad Salleh Eusoff Angullia, an expatriate Sunni Muslim merchant from India, established the Angullia Mosque in 1890 in Singapore’s Little India. It has been a religious and social gathering place for locals and foreign workers ever since. The mosque completed a major renovation in 2020 that doubled the prayer space to accommodate up to 2,500 congregants. A key goal was to make worship more accessible for those at the mosque, as well as those attending over the internet. In furtherance of that goal, The Islamic Religious Council of Singapore engaged pro AV consultant Hazelbayu Studios Pte Ltd and Avitcom System Pte Ltd to design and install the Mosque’s AV system. The AV system relies on Extron switching, distribution, streaming, and control products to distribute audio and video to public and staff spaces throughout the mosque and surrounding grounds, as well as streaming to the internet for remote worshipers.
According to AV system design consultant Hazelbayu Studios Pte Ltd, “Extron’s AV switching, streaming, distribution, and control products were the best choice for Angullia Mosque. Extron offers a mix of products that exactly fits the system requirements, with video processing that provides superior scaling capability to accommodate all the projectors and flat panel displays throughout the mosque."
A DTP CrossPoint 108 4K matrix switcher with HDMI and DTP inputs and outputs is the backbone of the AV system. Content is sourced from cameras, PCs, mics, and audio mixers. Switcher outputs are routed to over a dozen projectors and flat panel displays in reception areas, prayer halls, classrooms, meeting rooms, an auditorium, and outdoors. An Extron SMP 111 streaming media processor sends worship services live to the internet via hosting services like Facebook and records content for later use. The control system is designed for operation by non-technical clerics and assistants. An intuitive touchscreen graphical user interface is accessed on TouchLink Pro touchpanels in key locations around the mosque. An Extron IP Link IPCP Pro 350 control processor commands all AV system functions. Python programming under Extron’s Global Scripter integrated development environment makes the control system customizable, flexible, and futureproof.
