"The arrival of the 5G era will lead to upgrades in communication infrastructure. With high bandwidth, low latency, and ubiquitous connectivity, new opportunities will be created for the video streaming industry and enhance the quality, production and innovation of videos," said Wang. 5G technology will further enhance the cloud and remote cooperation abilities, giving rise to upgrades in content collection and editing patterns. In addition, improved transmission efficiency and broader connectivity will allow new forms of video consumption to emerge, enabling users to have a faster, more personalized and immersed consumption experience of high-definition content. iQIYI has been continuously enriching its technology in the field of 5G, and has for the first time deployed cloud-based technology that enables end-to-end streaming, providing users with livestreaming and VR content of lower latency. Currently, iQIYI has formed partnerships with the country's top three networks that hold 5G commercial licenses including China Unicom, China Telecom, and China Mobile. It has also successfully provided "5G+4K+VR" panoramic live broadcasting for the 2019 Beijing International Film Festival. Driven by a combination of technology and content innovation, by the end of the third quarter of 2019, the number of iQIYI's total subscribing members was 105.8 million, up 31% year on year.

iQIYI not only uses technology to empower its own entertainment content creation, but also deploys it to provide high-quality entertainment service for global users. Multiple iQIYI original productions, such as original drama series The Thunder and Hot Blooded Youth, as well as original variety show The Rap of China, were distributed globally. Recently, iQIYI formed a strategic partnership with Malaysia's leading media brand Astro to launch more localized operating and marketing campaigns based on Malaysia's market environment and user needs.
