    I don't think you're the one that started it, and I don't mind regardless, just trying to get your question in front of the largest audience possible!

    Adbear isn't wrong. You should expect that this won't be an easy thing to accomplish given that there aren't many 55" monitors in the world, and TVs often run at lower refresh rates.

    One thing to check for is the existence of an HDMI 2.0 port. TVs don't generally have DisplayPort connections, and HDMI 2.0 is required if you want to view 4k60p over HDMI. Generally, if they don't specify, assume it's an older 1.4 port. So, if you're looking for a *TV*, look for HDMI 2.0 -- sporting an HDMI 2.0 port may not be sufficient, but it's probably a decent indicator that it can at least accept a 4k60p stream. Whether it will display it well or properly is another matter entirely.

    [Ed: I'd also add that your videocard has to be able to output signal over HDMI 2.0 as well -- older cards don't.]

    My other suggestion would be to start a thread of your own with a more suitable title. I don't mind the topic drift at all as Jerry has already addressed my main point and I've happily participated in the drift, but you might get more responses from others if you ask them which 4k monitors people are using, rather than restricting the pool of people to those who use Vistitle in 4k.

    My (work) experience with really large monitors tells me that I tend to ignore the top and bottom sixth of the screen, so I can't help with a 55", but a coworker of mine uses one of these at his home: http://www.seiki.com/content/40-sm40unp-4k-monitor That said, we're programmers, not videographers, and I haven't seen it myself, so, definitely do some research first. Hope that helps!

    Either buy a proper computer monitor, or if you are looking at buying a TV check the manual to see if it does 60Hz when connected to a PC

    I'm pretty sure the Ovivo 55 is a TV not a monitor and even though they claim 120Hz it actually runs at 30 which is why you get the jerkiness. I've seen others have the same problem. Did you check in display settings to see what refresh rate Windows was assigning to the screen?

    I bought a 4k monitor Ovivo 55" for my editing computers because Edius 8 interface was optimized for a 4k monitor, I had to switch back to a HD 55" monitor Vizio because I had issues with the movement of the mouse on the screen, the mouse moved slow even though I tried all kinds of mouse.I use a Iogear 4 port DVI switcher so all my editing computers use one monitor. I even hooked a mouse directly to the 4k monitor but the movement of the mouse was hell for me. So I am back to a HD monitor. I also tried different scaling but no luck.

    you will need to give lots of money to GV to view 4k 60p, but it is possible

    As a software guy, I find it mind-boggling that it would take two years to deal with a change in resolution. You're right, but it's no less mind-boggling. Too much UI talent on web development nowadays, I guess.

    I would use a 4k TV connected to a dedicated 4k output card such as BM for just video viewing and keep smaller res mon for PC desktop
    Nope, not unless GV wants to let me run 4k60p that way. Really, it's okay too, because I don't have the physical space for a fourth monitor. I just got done suspending the 23" HDMI/Component monitor on a swing arm so that it can live snug up under the shelves holding the legacy playback machines. As long as I'm running one of my two desktops at 4k, it makes sense to run 'em both that way*.

    But, if you'd prefer, think of me as one of the sacrificial front-runners that live life at the bleeding edge so you don't have to :)

    * If I was running Win10, I might have experimented with running two different monitors at different DPIs. I could have run a 1440p 27" next to the 4k 27" @ 150%, but I haven't seen how well that sort of display mixing works in practice. The computer is getting upgraded early next year, though, so :shrug: Sometimes it's just a matter of timing.

    Yeah, well, 300% would be silly, I guess. I'm actually planning to run them at 150% (and am currently running it at 125%). If you figured that a good resolution was similar to the 300 dpi that you generally print documents at, you might wind up with a different answer, though. For me, I want a 4k monitor so I can monitor 4k footage, and it just makes sense to run both monitors at the same resolution :shrug:

    I stick with my 2560x1600 at 100% scaling, crystal clear all the way and all plugins are just fine
    Yes, at the tiny-font settings that programs on Windows generally run with, 2560x1600 would be a more appropriate resolution. Oddly, our phones seem to deal better with resolution independent interfaces than our computers.

    this sounds crazy to me

    Vistitle has been contacted concerning this. They are not the only 3rd party developers dealing with scaling issues.

    started a topic 4k display-friendly Vistitle?

    4k display-friendly Vistitle?

    I was more than pleased to see Edius 8.3 drop the same week as my 4k monitor arrived. Opening Vistitle, however, made me a bit concerned. Does anyone know if Vistitle is still seeing active development? Is there a list of high dpi-friendly plugins that someone might have compiled at some point?
