1.0 BACKGROUND INFORMATION
This project is based on proposed multi-purpose studio hall off Oke Ose community central mosques Ilorin.

Stage lightning rigs and the associated controlling equipment.
Several video monitors for visual feedback from the production control room (PCR).
A small public address system for communication
A glass window between PCR and studio floor for direct visual contract is usually desired, but not always possible while a production is in progress, people composing a television crew work studio floor.
