At the turn of the year in China, the country’s major provincial TV stations compete for audience ranking at their New Year's Eve televised celebrations. These are variety shows that attract immense viewership across China and feature popular celebrities and artists. Six channels competed this year in the New Year's Eve Gala. Jiangsu TV’s broadcast won the top audience rating of the evening.
Jiangsu TV’s 2022 New Year’s Eve Gala was held at the Macao Cotai Arena on the Cotai Strip in Macau, China. The show was broadcasted globally this year for the fifth time. Jiangsu TV has been recognized over the years for its beautiful stage designs and astute application of innovative technology. This year, high-end technology was essential for the setup. State-of-the-art camera and lighting equipment was utilized including four sets of ARRI’s Stabilized Remote Head, the SHR-3, which helped to capture various perspectives. The lighting crew wanted to push the limits on using film lights and selected 80 ARRI SkyPanel S360-C professional flat panel lights for this massive undertaking.
