A Defining Moment: Maison Martell Presents the Daring New Martell XO

PARIS, Oct. 23, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — Maison Martell has unveiled its emblematic Martell XO cognac with a striking new design that further enhances its prestige. The distinctive arch-shaped bottle – so famous that, in some countries, it is referred to simply as “the arch” – has been thoroughly updated, with cleaner, more dynamic lines and refined brushed-gold trim conveying the energy and elegance of Martell XO. https://prnewswire2-a.akamaihd.net/p/1893751/sp/189375100/thumbnail/entry_id/1_2k19n5dq/def_height/400/def_width/400/version/100011/type/1

The daring new Martell XO was revealed on 18 October 2019 in Shanghai. With its bold, contemporary design and uniquely intense, powerful taste, Martell XO is an expression of the audacity of Maison Martell, which – throughout its 300-year history – has challenged convention in order to set new standards. This spirit speaks to cognac lovers whose own drive and daring have set them on the path to success. Indeed, the advertising campaign which accompanies the new design evokes those “defining moments” – audacious decisions and decisive actions – which can change the course of a life.

Martell XO is Maison Martell’s signature interpretation of the prestigious Grande Champagne terroir. The power and intensity characteristic of Grande Champagne eaux-de-vie are uniquely revealed by the House’s specific double distillation of exclusively clear wines and ageing in barrels of fine-grained oak. Their forceful character is balanced by the elegance of eaux-de-vie from the rare Borderies cru, with which Maison Martell is historically associated.

Martell XO is thus instantly recognisable for its exceptional combination of power and finesse: on the nose, it is distinguished by a piquant, spicy sensation with notes of black and pink pepper and coriander, rounded out by rich aromas of fig, walnut and sandalwood; on the palate, intense notes of fig, red fruit and blackcurrant bud lead into an exceptionally long, robust finish.

The launch in Shanghai was attended by the acclaimed actor, singer, entrepreneur and chef Nicholas Tse, who has recently been named a Martell Ambassador in Asia. His charismatic personality and outstanding achievements embody the daring spirit of Martell XO, the cognac that marks life’s defining moments.

South Korea is well known for its K-pop and street dancing culture, but imagine dancing with your favorite idol anywhere, anytime.

This is made possible by one of South Korea’s leading telecom operators. LG Uplus recently introduced an augmented reality (AR) service that allows users to dance along with a K-pop star by using a 5G smartphone.

This app is called AR Live. It features a range of AR content allowing users to see prerecorded moving holographic avatars. While using the app, users can record themselves dancing right next to a virtual image of their favorite star.

Groove-K: I used to practice the choreography of my idols by watching TV, but now, I can practice with them at the same time using this app. This is so much better. Using a smartphone, I can now watch, memorize, and practice the dance routine. It’s much more convenient.

ZTE Demonstrates the First 5G Slicing Store in Europe

SHENZHEN, China, Oct. 23, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — ZTE Corporation (0763.HK / 000063.SZ), a major international provider of telecommunications, enterprise and consumer technology solutions for the mobile internet, today announced that it has partnered with Hutchison Drei Austria to demonstrate the first slicing store in Europe. It boasts the first end-to-end network slicing operation in the industry.

In the 5G “Slicing Store”, consumers or enterprise customers can select the predefined slice template and set the SLA parameters according to the characteristics of the user or individual industry requirements. After the user logs into the online sliced based service store, the user can choose services with different SLA, such as guaranteed bandwidth, maximum latency, etc. Then, the specific service can be put in the cart for checking out. Once the payment is completed, this service can be activated immediately as requested. If the number of users increases or the KPI performance decreases, the system can automatically adjust its resources to maintain KPI. This slicing solution can be widely used in vertical industries to meet variable requirements and ensure the SLA, regardless of the vertical market type.

This innovative solution can accelerate the commercialization of 5G slicing and help operators achieve success in a variety of vertical markets. By exposing the customized slices to vertical industries, operators can transform from single B2C traffic operation to B2B, B2B2C, and B2B2B diversified slice operation. As a result, in-depth integration between 5G and vertical industries becomes possible and 5G value space is stimulated by allowing the network requirements of each vertical industry to be individually met.

The 5G slicing store solution invites vertical industries to participate in the orchestration and life cycle management of the network slice. Based on the orchestration and exposing capabilities for vertical industries, this solution features SLA customization, real-time KPI monitoring, enhanced charging and network slice lifecycle management. The wide-ranging benefits of this solution can greatly promote the commercial process of 5G, help vertical industries to reduce TCO, and enhance end-to-end user experience.

ZTE is a provider of advanced telecommunications systems, mobile devices and enterprise technology solutions to consumers, carriers, companies and public sector customers. As part of ZTE’s strategy, the company is committed to providing customers with integrated end-to-end innovations to deliver excellence and value as the telecommunications and information technology sectors converge. Listed in the stock exchanges of Hong Kong and Shenzhen (H share stock code: 0763.HK / A share stock code: 000063.SZ), ZTE sells its products and services in more than 160 countries.

ZTE has so far obtained 25 commercial 5G contracts in major 5G markets such as Europe, Asia Pacific and MEA (Middle East and Africa). ZTE commits 10 per cent of its annual revenue to research and development and has leadership roles in international standard-setting organizations.

“Africa Link Union (ALU)” provides news services to more African media outlets

CASABLANCA, Morocco, Oct. 23, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — CCTV Video News Agency (CCTV+) signed agreements with three more African media outlets on October 21, to provide them news services under the framework of “Africa Link Union (ALU)”. As of now, 29 mainstream media organizations from 26 African countries have joined the union.

Media representatives and experts from 15 African and Chinese media organizations attended the meeting.

A signing ceremony for Today Africa, a program of tailored world and China news packages produced by CCTV+, was held on the same day, adding five more broadcasters of the program.

The ceremony was held during the 4th “Africa Link Union (ALU)” Council Meeting in Casablanca, Morocco, co-hosted by CCTV+ and 2M TV, the first state-owned public TV station in Morocco. Media representatives and experts from 15 African and Chinese media organizations attended the meeting.

“It is the first time that the ALU Council Meeting has been held in Africa since its inception in 2016,” said Gao Wei, Managing Director and Editor-in-chief of CCTV+. “This year, our ALU members have made great efforts on developing news sharing, tailored trainings, and news program exchanges to expand the alliance,” Gao added. He also thanked 2M TV for providing support for the event.

As the co-organizer, Cheikh Salim, General Manager of 2M TV, placed expectations on ALU members to take full advantage of this opportunity and strive for achievements in improving the ALU cooperation mechanism and promoting common progress for alliance members.

Driven by the ALU, CCTV+ has become a significant source of news content for African media outlets in the past year. Last year, CCTV+ pushed more than 20,000 news stories on China and the world, with scripts in English, Arabic and French. And members have uploaded more than 2,000 pieces of African news material through the ALU mechanism.

CCTV+ is China’s first and leading video news agency. It offers news products and services to global professional media organizations, via its online Global Distribution System (www.cctvplus.com) and works in cooperation with world-leading distributors of professional news content.

ALU was initiated by CCTV+ and media organizations across Africa in June 2016, aiming to promote media cooperation and exchanges between China and Africa, and boost the global communication of African news content.
