Lots of companies now make 4K monitors, for half-a-house sort of prices.

What are people actually doing on set these days? HD monitoring and occasionally zooming in? Using one of the huge Quad HD displays? Which ones? Most of the types available at the moment look to be effectively aimed at the home TV market, crazily, although I suppose that never stopped anyone putting things in a flight case and renting it out for $500/day before!

Well don't quote me on this because it's a 'friend of a friend' thing but some monitors produced this year have 4K built into them and require a firmware update to unlock 4k. But cnet has confirmed 4K will be released on monitors for cheaper prices.

Personally I think 4K will be good for massive size monitors,
I hate 54"+ monitors they all look really stretched out you'd have to sit 15 meters away for it to look good imho.
I think 44" is ideal for HD.
