China Central Television (CCTV)

Spring Festival Gala

Beijing, China

The most watched TV program in China, worldwide broadcasting, over 1.2 billion viewers would watch this show on every Chinese new year's eve for celebrating the Spring Festival and New Lunar Year

My position: Asst. Sound Engineer & Mic Technician


This is the new year's gala in China. And it's also the TV program with the highest viewing rate every year. As a member of the audio group, I participated in the broadcasting of 2019 & 2020 Spring Festival Gala.

During the period of rehearsal and preparation for more than one month, I assisted my colleagues to complete the construction of live sound reinforcement system in CCTV's No.1 Broadcasting Studio.


And during the joint rehearsal and formal performance, I was responsible for checking and set wireless microphones for the actors. Every time I'll do the frequency scan in the area and carefully check the frequencies assignment and gain of the lav mics and put it on the most suitable positions for the actors. As a show watched by more than a billion of people worldwide there can't be any mistake in broadcasting. 


The four-and-a-half-hour gala includes

singing, dancing, drama, magic and other forms of performance.

And there are all kinds of microphones being used.

To achieve good pickup effect, the cooperation of the entire audio team is extremely important.

There are also many technical problems appeared in PA and broadcasting. In the spare time, I often chat with CCTV's technicians and engineers for advice on the skills that I haven't learned from school.

I also had a further understanding of the broadcast security of this kind of large-scale live programs.

This work has made me gain a lot of experience.

On Chinese New Year's Eve in 2019 and 2020, as the day of family reunion,

I was not with my family.

But I made effort for the Spring Festival Gala, bringing the happiness of Spring Festival to more families in China. This is the most meaningful work I have ever done.
