Yes, Sony's OLED monitors all use scanning, and the newer ones also have the option of a flicker-free mode.
Unfortunately - as far as I am aware - they are limited to a maximum of 60Hz and have just...

Right, because they're projecting at 48Hz, not 24.
The point is that you can't do strobing at 24Hz because of the flicker that introduces.

48Hz is about the point where flicker is still very...

Just because they're projecting film doesn't change how our vision works.
I have to assume it's done for the same reasons: to minimize flicker and increase light output at the expense of introducing...

I'm sure the set will be using 120Hz for a 24p input - or at least some multiple of 24.
What I meant is that RTINGS' testing must have been at 60Hz (and actually reading the comments confirms this)...

Plasmas rely on persistence of vision to create full-color images, just like DLPs.
They switch the pixels on and off at varying rates in order to create shades.

I'm not sure that's true when comparing against Sony LCDs if you have backlight scanning active, or other LCDs which use a single strobe.

Plasmas have "phosphor lag" issues which manifest as...

There are no flat panels with great motion handling. None.
They all have one sort of problem or another.
The only displays with great motion handling were CRTs - and they were not perfect either.

A 10pt white balance control is effectively a 10pt gamma control as well, since you can raise or lower all three R/G/B values together for each point to adjust the gamma.

Well it doesn't look anything like you saw on the stream, because that's due to the way that the flicker interferes with the camera.

That's not how local dimming works.
