"Through our cloud-based digital display terminals, program highlights and public information from the spectacular Peony Festival can be broadcast live to a larger audience at more places. At the Festival, we will showcase the exciting capabilities in promotion, presentation and information dissemination of our cloud-based new media solutions, and look forward to bringing new dynamics to traditional cultural events through the use of internet technology.
