I believe much like the C8000 the C9000 will have Pinpoint Dimming which includes thousands of microshutters that controls dimming much more precisely or so one would think.
Unfortunately no one has actually observed and tested this new Pinpoint Dimming as to it's effectiveness versus Local Dimming and so I think we'll have to await testing and reviews to determine whether it's marketing hype or = or surpasses Local Dimming or sucks - I'm thinking it's going to work like an IRIS does with an SXRD or Qualia in theory. Both the Sony and Samsung should be excellent panels but the C9000 price factor seems rather outrageous at this point.
