Post production companies don't overpay for everything, the margins are tight for small/mediium outfits. If they overpaid for everything their wouldn't be dedicated server farms operating specifically for the film industry, they'd be rendering everything in house on 4k+ cores.

Like anything creative, it's a very competitive industry so every penny counts.
Small / medium outfits also rent their equipment. I'm talking the big players that can buy a million+ dollars of new equip for each new project.

How many will be sold without a stand? Like trying to buy a shop truck without power locks and windows, cheaper to just buy it with it. Kind of suprised they don't roll it into the price and just make it $6k.

I think that is the real mind boggling part. If they had just included it and said 6k monitor, no one would blink
