The Mediaroom was covered in the Grand Openining Documentary DVD

How is the instant visual relaying is done?

Many who have visited the mediaroom have commented that they had thought the visual translations are automatic to match the wordings of the recitor. This is not so, as it is important to match the wordings of the recitor to what is relayed on the screen and this cannot be possible if the speed vary or otherwise.

The mediaroom operates with the involvement of two to three committed persons who need to control the mediaroom by changing the translation paragraphs to match what is recited.

Softwares used include Microsoft office especially powerpoint.

How Arabic was introduced in the translations?

Initially, the translations were in english only and this was making it difficult for the operators to show what is in the screen to what is being recited. One of their members, Muhammad Shaban got this idea of having arabic together with the english translations and he found out some of such powerpoint presentations from the web while others were provided by Abdul Datoo and while others were made by Media Room team themselves.
