The reasons why a maj上海千花坊nt companie

 saw a drop in profit can be complicated. On one hand, last year’s tax crackdown and tightened regulatory policies in taxes have ce

rtainly struck some major players, costing them both time and money to pay the fine and restructure their上海千花坊

businesses,” said Chen Shaofeng, a professor in culture and entertainment at Peking University.

上海千花坊女神会所”On the other hand, China’s film box office market is heading toward saturation, which m

eans that the profit surge that many entertainment companies saw in the past is less likely to happen,” Chen added.

Data from the National Radio and Television Administration

showed box office revenue in the first half of 2019 in China stood at 31.17 billion yuan, down 2.7 per上海千花坊

cent year-on-year. Cinema visits dropped 10.3 percent year-on-year to 808 million visits within the same period.

Chen believes, though, the companies will bounce back.

上海千花坊女神会所”The industry is still likely to see a boom in the near future as there is more market pote

ntial to be tapped, such as film derivatives (toys and figure models), various genres of intellectual properties or t

rans-media storytelling (presenting the story with multiple platforms like films, TV shows, and games),” Chen said.上海千花坊

“Such approaches to IP development can be an effective way to generate more revenue for entertainment companies,” he added.

Wanda and Huayi said in their statements that losses were due上海千花坊女神会所

to a lack of projects premiering in the first half of the year. Most of Huayi’s film projects such

as The Eight Hundred directed by Guan Hu would premiere in the second half of 2019.

“It’s common that entertainment companies adjust their film distribution plans based on market de上海千花坊

mand, and choose to release their films during a certain period of time to maximize their profits,” Chen said.

“But it is certainly not the reason why a majority of entertainment

companies saw a drop in profit. Although it is common for entertainment companies to premie上海千花坊女神会所

re their major film projects in second-half seasons with peak demand, it is unlikely for most of them to do so at the same

time, as the first half of the year also has many peak movie-going seasons,” said Chen.

Guangdong province, an economic powerhouse in South China, is accelerating development of 5G, with 8,949

上海419论坛品茶微信base stations already established by the end of June according to sources at an industrial conference.

According to the 5G Innovation and Development Conference, which was held on上海419论坛

Sunday in the provincial capital of Guangzhou, Guangdong‘s 5G companies — Hu

上海419论坛品茶微信awei Technologies and ZTE Corporation — occupy up to 75 percent of the nation’s 5G market.

The province’s 5G industrial output is expected to reach more than 300 billion yuan ($43.6 billio

“As part of booming technologies, the 5G will be used more in the internet of things

上海419论坛sector,” said Sun Yu, an academician with the Chinese Academy of Engineering.

In Guangzhou’s Huangpu district, 5G has already been implemented in commercial secto

The district is expected to build 5,000 5G bases by the end of 2019, according to sources with the district government.

Honor, one of the two signature smartphone brands from Huawei Technologies Co, announced on Monday that it上海419论坛

will unveil a smart big-screen product in August, marking Huawei’s officially entrance into the TV sector.

“We hope to leverage our years of innovation in smartphon

上海419论坛品茶微信es to reshape the role of TV in our lives,” Zhao Ming, president of Honor, said.

In addition to the entertainment features of traditional TVs, Honor’s smart-screen product w

ill function as a center for information sharing for families and a center for multi-device interaction.

“We never meant to blaze off a bloody road in the fiercely competitive market. Instead, we aim to bring new value,” Zhao said.上海419论坛品茶微信

According to Zhao, the new product also will have big potential for industrial use, given its stro

Restoration gives classi上海乌托邦as a new lease on

Have you ever been bitten by the nostalgia bug and tried to look up your favorite childhood

TV dramas and watch them? Often it’s the case that you soon find the fuzzy images and the awkward co上海乌托邦

lor so unbearable that you drop the show after watching it for no more than three minutes.

上海乌托邦女神会所However, recently a special film viewing marathon was held by Youku, a video streaming site owned by Alibaba, at a cinema in B

eijing. The event featured nonstop episodes of a digitally-restored version of the 2006 hit TV dra

a Soldiers Sortie, and attracted a large crowd of diehard fans, many born after 1995.上海乌托邦

Although the intensive viewing was quite a test of physical strength, much to everyone’s s

urprise, the greatly-enhanced definition of the restored version stood the test of the big screen.

上海乌托邦女神会所With the advent of the Ultra HD era characterized by enhanced set-top boxes, ever-evolving virtual reality technologies, and

display devices nearly all with an aspect ratio of 16:9 – when many of the original classical TV and film pro

ductions made with the 4:3 aspect ratio – they now look like “running mosaics” on today’s much wider screens.上海乌托邦

To top it all, due to multiple transfers of the original video file over the ye

上海乌托邦女神会所ars, the edges of picture have become serrated. Plus, stored for decades, negatives of tho

se classic shows have all been subject to severe color shift that calls for correction.

he good news is that digital restoration of classical TV dramas spearhea上海乌托邦

ded by China’s top video streaming websites, like Youku and iQiyi, is now in full swing.

Protecting and restoring old films has always been under way, but previously the job was mainly funded by the gove

rnment. By the end of 2011, as much as 265 million yuan ($38.6 million) had been appropriated for digital restoration wo上海乌托邦女神会所

rk, giving a new shine to a total of 4,810 old films, said Luo Jianhui from Chi

na Netcasting Services Association at the 7th China Internet Audio-visual Conference held in May.

when its performanc上海品茶微信 created a sensati

The first time the POB visited Shanghai was in 2005, when its performance of Giselle created a se

nsation in the city, says Zhang Xiaoding, general manager of Shanghai Grand Theatre.上海品茶微信

“It is very difficult to have the company come to China, because the cost is really high,” Zhang says.

上海品茶微信女神会所”We decided to make the best out of the opportunity, and prepared lectures, workshops and othe

r educational programs to allow the artists to communicate with the public in Shanghai.”

Tickets to the four Swan Lake shows sold out quickly, and the theater added dozens of temporary seats for each performance.

The two gala shows are selling very well, too,” she said before the shows.上海品茶微信

“Shanghai audiences not only enjoy classical ballets such as Swan Lake but have also show

上海品茶微信女神会所n a great deal of interest in contemporary dance. That’s why we made the request for the POB to present the

gala show featuring contemporary dance in Shanghai when we first discussed its tour plans.”

The gala show consists of three choreographers’ works. Blake Works I marks the first collaboration between choreo上海品茶微信

grapher William Forsythe and English musician James Blake. In the Night by Jerome Robbins is a romantic dan

上海品茶微信女神会所ce, consisting of three elegant duets to Chopin’s nocturne pieces. And The Seasons’ Canon features group dancing by

Crystal Pite to music from Antonio Vivaldi’s The Four Seasons, rearranged by Max Richter.

The POB is widely recognized for its excellence in classical ballet, but the company上海品茶微信女神会所

is equally strong in its interpretation of contemporary-dance works, Moglia

says. Contemporary dance productions now make up half of the POB’s performance programs.

oday, the POB has 154 dancers, including 17 danseurs etoiles (上海品茶微信

star dancers), a title awarded to only the most outstanding principal dancers.

上海品茶微信女神会所While most of the POB dancers come from the Paris Opera Ballet S

chool, the institution also recruits aspiring dancers from all over the world.

“We have dancers from 14 different countries,” Moglia says.

“One of them is from China, who used to study in H

ong Kong, and after three years of training at our school, he is now a dancer with the POB.”

One of the oldest ballet companies in the world, the POB is an integrated part of the Pari

s Opera. The ballet originated from earlier dance institutions and practices of the court of Louis XIV. The P

OB represents an important branch in the evolution of ballet, which originated from t

he royal courts of the Italian Renaissance. It was in France that ballet turned into an independent theatrical form

of art. After that, the Royal Danish Ballet and the Imperial Ballet of Russia also began to flourish.
