Like the title says, this display has a feature built-into the TV called micro dimming ultimate (which cannot be disabled) and dynamic alters contrast, color, and sharpness in 500+ zones. Would this affect calibration and if so, what special considerations would need to be taken?

Note: this feature does not include local dimming of the edge-lit LED backlight.
