4K Monitor for Avid Mediacomposer

Hi guys,
I have just bought a Samsung UHD TV MU6740 CLASS.
I want to use it as a third monitor from my Mac Pro using Media Composer 8.3.1

When the sequence plays back, it looks a bit 'steppy' like it can't catch up.
Every time there is a movement, such as a car driving past, it steps a bit, the picture kind of splits a bit like.

Also I have noticed the movement of the mouse does the same thing.
Even at desktop level the cursor doesn't move in a smooth glide, it steps.

I am using OS X Yosemite on a mac 10.10.5
Connecting to the TV via the HDMI output from the mac to the TV.
Media composer 8.3.1

Any advise would be great as I may need to take it back if it's incompatible.
Many thanks in advance.
Dan.

You need an IO device e.g. BlackMagic UltraStudio 4K etc...

Thanks for your post Eric.
I had a very confusing chat with the tech guys at Curry’s about the HDMI ports on modern tv’s. He said that on HDMI ports on modern tv’s there is a block that stops computer signals. It’s to stop illegal streaming.

I’m just wondering wether an io box would solve this or wether it’s just for latency issues.

Im not sure why they would mention that unless you were planning to "try" and hook-up a digital cable receiver into your Avid to record television feed.
If you're only using your HDMI Display as a viewer from your computer (Avid or whatever), you dont need to worry about that.
