BEIJING - The scale of China's ultra-high-definition video industry had exceeded 3 trillion yuan (about $431.8 billion) by the end of 2022, industry data showed.

Of the total, South China's Guangdong province accounted for 600 billion yuan, according to the China Center for Information Industry Development (CCID) under the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology.
