- Content Is King
A variety of premium content is produced every day, such as movies, TV shows, news, magazines, and books. Good content creates benefits such as advertising, subscription, and traffic. Therefore, how to manage and make good use of content holds a key for success.
To appeal more subscribers, major media companies are investing intensively to create quality content for enhanced user loyalty and new profit growth.

Mango TV is one of the four largest multimedia platforms in China. It stands out in the fierce market competition with its premium variety shows. In particular, the variety show Sisters Who Make Waves 2 was produced using Huawei's 4K cloud production and broadcasting system, which reduced the production costs by more than 10 times from CNY tens of millions to millions. The cloud significantly boosted the production efficiency of 4K programs, with the production of each episode completed within 12 hours. The time and costs needed by Mango TV for producing 4K UHD programs are equivalent to those for producing HD content. The significant improvement in 4K content productivity marks a huge leap for variety shows.
