Case study of the Mosque

The Mosque and Islamic Centre of Brent came into being in 1976.  The mosque has a large hall accommodating 600+ worshippers and a smaller hall which is used for the 5 daily prayers that accommodates about 300 people.

The Islamic Centre’s main focus is the community. To assist in delivery of its message The Mosque and Islamic Centre of Brent engaged DomeStream to install Live Streaming facilities.

OBS is installed on a small form factor PC to provide high-performance real-time video/audio capturing and mixing.  The software allows the user to create scenes made up of multiple sources including images, text, webcams and more. Finally, OBS creates the output required by DomeStream's media server to distribute to viewers.

DomeStreams affordable streaming solution runs on their own CDN (Content Distribution Network). They have control from end to end. Viewers tuning in to the Live stream from The Mosque and Islamic Centre of Brent could view the output on their browser or on the custom-built App provided by DomeStream.

While the Coronavirus pandemic prevented DomeStream installers access to the Mosque for final detailed installation they were still able to get the Mosque staff to setup and be able to create their first live stream on the eve of Ramadan 2020.

 

At this particular time the presence of streaming facilities had added importance and helped deliver proceedings to those who were unable to attend in person.
