The Golden Melody Awards (GMA) take place annually and are regarded as the equivalent to the Grammys in the Chinese-speaking world. Inaugurated in 1990, the awards recognize outstanding achievement in the field of popular music production and performance. They are organized by the Ministry of Culture of Taiwan, China. The ceremony, which takes place in June at the Taipei Arena, is broadcast on Hami Video, TOUCH TTV, YouTube, MOD, UFO Radio, StarHub (Singapore), Astro (Malaysia) and Tencent Video (Mainland China).

“DPA’s 4098 Supercardioid microphones offer much clearer and more transparent sound than the microphones we were previously using, plus the miniature capsule is so slim and so amazingly small that is doesn’t block the faces of the speakers,” says Andy Chen, president of Winly Production Services International Corp and production manager for this event. “This is really important, especially for the female artists.”
