    It would be a “whopping” $35,000 to buy one for each of his editors.

                    For $7,000.00, I'd expect them to get the "disabled / enabled" thing right 'disabled is enabled, and enabled is borked.' Yeah, some Q.A. officer should have lost his job.

                                          Question: Did you even try video output from the Red card? I think they may have had those video outputs for a reason as they can handle a better signal that would prevent CPU/GPU bottlenecking? Sorry if I'm wrong just throwing it out there, you guys are awesome!

                                            Ever see those Graphics cards for medical monitors (Barco MXRT and similar) Those are quite pricey as well. Of course some of them drive a 4200 x 2800 pixel monitor that costs $30k. (MDMC-12133)

                                                Why in the first place do you need 8K?
                                                4K is where i would say its the limit
                                                And who even has an 8K display? i dont

                                                          Just asking, but why would you even use the raw footage over the whole video? I mean as an editor you don't just sit down and start working, you figure out where you wanna do which edits. And instead of then constantly fighting the load of using the raw footage, you could already pre-render it and use the raw only on those parts of the edit where you actually need it.
