What makes IMAX different?

There isn’t one thing that makes IMAX the most immersive movie experience in the world; it’s a combination of many proprietary technologies and architecture – almost all of the inventions that are unique to IMAX. This is called the IMAX Experience® and is the culmination of the following elements:

  • IMAX manufactures the highest resolution cameras in the world and provides them to the most ambitious and accomplished filmmakers
  • IMAX’s Digital Re-Mastering process, which enhances the image and sound of the movie
  • IMAX’s revolutionary projection system which delivers lifelike, crystal clear images
  • IMAX’s powerful sound system which delivers laser-aligned sound you can feel
  • IMAX’s customised theatre design which puts moviegoers in the action 
  • When integrated together, the result delivers and experience so real you’ll forget you’re in a cinema
