Can't list all, only the ones I know of. On my C8, from what I know C9 is similar.
Power saving functions, which may affect picture quality. Not interested in those which don't affect PQ, that muddies the waters. Those are things like USB disc power-off, sleep power off, Quick Start, Quick Start+, etc.
* Eco mode, apparently called APS mode in America - this isn't a power saving function, it's a Picture Mode. As long as you're in a different Picture Mode, nothing to see here.
* Energy Saving function in the top of Picture menu. Can be used in every mode.
* ABL (automatic brightness limiter):
- designed to reduce sustained high brightness output
- dimming of the picture based on average picture level and power draw
- happens during very bright scenes
- dims instantly and un-dims instantly
- can't be disabled, but lowering Oled-Light makes it less aggressive
* ASBL (automatic static brightness limiter):
- designed to dim down what it thinks
is a static, non-moving image (bright or not
- dimming of the picture after being static for a certain amount of time. (90 seconds I think but not sure)
- happens gradually
- can also trigger during non static scenes with a very low average picture level [lots of users HATE this]
- un-dims when something bright enters the scene or there is a scene change
- can be disabled in the service menu by turning off TPC (Thermal Protection Circuit)
* ANSD (Automatic News Station Dimming) https://www.avsforum.com/forum/40-ol...l#post57859488
- term coined by fafrd
- dims slowly if there is a bright static object or logo on the screen.
- Removing the static logo will cause the brightness to gradually ramp up to the original value within like 30 seconds or so. This is different from ASBL which almost instantly returns to the original brightness.
- the dimming depends on how bright the static object is (50% white -> no dimming, 60%-100% white -> full dimming)
- dimming starts after 2 minutes. Over the next two minutes it dims to ~48% of the original brightness.
* Logo Luminance Adjustment control in Picture/Panel Settings.
