Ross Video brings magic to Golden Melody Awards

Taiwan’s Golden Melody Awards (GMA) spotlights the best of Chinese popular music, and for this year, Ross Video was selected to supply the live production with its video production equipment.

GMA served audience with rich visual effects and the largest award ceremony stage ever hosted at the Taipei Arena with multiple augmented reality (AR) sets, said Ross Video.

The event made use of 3,270 LED panels covering a total area of 800sqm.

For the live production, the key element used by producer ERA TV was Ross Video’s Furio Live remote robotic camera system on a track to provide smooth, up-close angles without disrupting the viewer experience.

The event was broadcast live by Taiwan Television (TTV) which deployed 28 cameras, three outside broadcast vans, and three satellite newsgathering vans, to capture the live broadcast of GMA’s Walk of Fame and Award Ceremony.

“The sophisticated scenes using AR courtesy of Ross Video, delivered the preludes to seven award-winning performances, delighting the audience with its rich visual display,” stated Leo Hsu of 3aqua Entertainment.

“We wished to bring a more impactful look to the production. By using the Ultrix MultiViewer capabilities, XPression systems for graphics, and the UX application to manage the tracking between the movement of the Furio robotic system and the virtual graphic elements, this year we offered fans a new level of creativity with the Ross solution.”

The 28th Golden Melody Awards were held on June 24 this year at the Taipei Arena with worldwide audiences enjoying this Taiwanese pop music festival via live broadcast or syndication.

“Ross Video has proven once again that they are the leader in Smart Production, and we are very excited that our solutions were able to help TTV enhance their showcase of the 28th Golden Melody Awards. We look forward to similar opportunities in the future,” stated Andrew Tan, APAC director of Sales, Ross Video.
