Electrovision helps Bandar Abbas Central Mosque find its voice


Electrovision Company has designed and installed the sound and video systems at the new Bandar Abbas Central Mosque in Iran’s Hormozgan Province. When it is completed, the mosque will accommodate more than 21,000 people and host Jumu'ah, also known as Friday Prayer or Congregational Prayer. It will reportedly be the largest mosque in the world.

Inside the main hall, Electrovision installed Electro-Voice EVU-2082/95 compact two-way loudspeakers on each of the room’s columns. These are powered by CPS 2.9 amplifiers and managed from a Midas M32 digital mixer located in the control room. The speaker setup ensures that everybody can hear sermons clearly as the imams speak into beyerdynamic M59 and M88TG wired microphones, as well as Electro-Voice R300-L lapel and R300HdD handheld wireless mics.

Outside, in the yard, PI waterproof versions of Electro-Voice’s ZX5 15-inch passive speakers have been deployed along with Aimline ALW 8.2C speakers. Electro-Voice EVID speakers have been installed in the portico, and CPS 2.12 amplifiers deliver power to the outdoor setup.

‘We knew that during this project we would face some acoustic challenges given the structure of the building and its domes, which act as a trap for soundwaves,’ said Ali Rezaie, project manager at Electrovision. ‘As well as solving the reverberation and other acoustical issues, it was necessary to ensure that sound reaches all areas of the mosque equally with the same quality that was realised by accurate engineering calculations and the use of audio-sensing instruments.’

On the visual side, Electrovision designed a Datavideo setup comprising PTC-120 HD PTZ cameras, an SE-700 digital video switcher and an HDR-70 digital recorder. The video solution is used to provide visual reinforcement during ceremonies and events via Panasonic Pt-RZ570 video projectors in the main hall. The projectors also playback video clips and photographs.
