China is doubling down on its push toward ultra high-definition video.

On Friday, Miao Wei, Minister of Industry and Information Technology, visited Beijing’s Ultra High-Definition Video Production Technology Collaboration Center to tout its uses and reiterate government support.

A national development and action plan published in March estimates the scale of China’s ultra HD video industry to exceed 4 trillion yuan ($581 billion), with its users reaching 200 million people by 2022.

But to do so, China must strengthen the core technology and product research of ultra HD video, accelerate breakthroughs in sectors such as virtual reality and artificial intelligence chips, and promote the application of ultra HD video in various industries, said Miao.

4G internet has enabled the success of China’s short video and livestreaming industry, which thrived partly due to the high-speed mobile internet. Now that China is stepping into the 5G era, ultra HD video is expected to gain market popularity.
