China Central Television (CCTV) has adopted Merging Technologies’ systems for critical parts of the infrastructure, including installing Merging’s Ovation systems with MassCore at several important locations.

China Central TelevisionIn CCTV’s 800m² television studio, a Merging Ovation system is linked to Lawo mc² audio production console using Ravenna AoIP transport to provide multichannel playback during live programmes – and, given the size of the viewing audience, there is a second Ovation MassCore system mirroring the master machine.

Another location where Ovation can be found is in the studios located in E-Zone of the ‘new’ CCTV building. This building is no longer that new but it is no less impressive for that (it was selected as one of the top ten architectural miracles worldwide by Time Magazine in December 2007 and is still winning awards with the more recent prizes for Best High-Rise Building in 2013 by the Society of High-rise Urban Architecture (CTBUH) and one of the top ten contemporary buildings in April 2014). The E-Zone studio group is mainly used for recording music programmes, and here Ovation is connected with a Hapi networked audio interface to perform multitrack reverberation and other live effects.

Studio E02 is being set up for live broadcast and they are planning to use the Show Control capabilities of Ovation to combine the control of audio, video and lighting. This involves connecting the video switcher and the lighting console, which is already controlling audio.

The advantages of IP in an OB Van have been fully realised in what was the first 4K all-IP truck in China. Here the Ravenna/AES67 network features Merging’s Pyramix connected to the Lawo mc² audio console for capturing high quality multitrack recordings of various TV programmes.

Pyramix and Ovation are also currently in use in many prestigious live venues, museums and art galleries and theme parks across Mainland China, as well as a wedding hall. Its ability to control the whole show as well as providing an immersive sound experience has been key to this success.
