Early tests with cheap 4K TV monitor

We received our cheap 4K TV monitor, a SEIKI 4K LCD model SE50UY04, that you can find online for less than $1,500. It’s driven up to 30Hz with a single HDMI cable (limit of the HDMI spec).
Driving it from a computer is easy from an Nvidia card at 3840×2160@30Hz (or 24Hz).
Here are pictures from some tests to drive it from a HDSDI codec. The blackmagicdesign converter (4x SDI to HDMI 1.4a) has still some issues to talk to the panel (timing issues), but hopefully fixed soon with a firmware update.

Once in 4K mode, it looks gorgeous!
