But looking at the 12 inputs:

It has four "12G-SDI" (12G meaning it supports a 12Gb/s bitrate) inputs, plus an HDMI one. The SDI ones are IN/OUT so you can chain different equipment.

SDI is a common interface type for professional video equipment - unlike HDMI/DP/etc. it's not encrypted (no DRM), thereby usually not available on consumer equipment because it would allow to easily copy the data stream...

I'm surprised there is no DP input. (My graphics card can output 10bit only to DP...)
You'll just have to buy one of these: https://www.blackmagicdesign.com/products/decklink or similar from other brands.

Looking at the SDI inputs, could this theoretically be an HD multiview monitor?

Yep, appears that it can display four HD sources in a 2x2 mosaic. Or if all of those are 12G-SDI as the press release implies, four 4K sources downsampled to HD?

Correction: $20,000.002

That extra two thousandths of a cent matters- just shows their dedication to precision is matched in the retail cost  ;D

Thousandth of a dollar, not cents. The proper name is mill.
