A spectacular format

First of all, let’s get back to the starting point: what is IMAX, concretely? It was originally a film format that made it possible to go from the classic 35mm to a 70mm reel: the largest medium ever invented in the history of cinema.

IMAX films deliver 26% more image: where the classic format “cuts” the image in its verticality – IMAX uses a ratio of 1.90 and sometimes even 1.43, thus allowing spectators to see the space traditionally cut by classic formats.

IMAX also uses screens that are up to 40% larger than conventional cinemas: the canvases in IMAX theaters can indeed reach 375 m², or around 2 tennis courts. A show that gives the spectator a complete immersion, regardless of the row in which he is seated.

Beyond the size of the screen, it is the whole room that is created to measure by IMAX. Premium seats, projectors calibrated daily, the most powerful speakers on the market: the design and acoustics of the room are tailor-made to offer a superior immersive experience to the public.

Unparalleled image quality

IMAX is not just an XXL format, it is above all a total visual experience: if we had to compare IMAX film to a classic digital format, we estimate that the definition would be around 18K!

Thanks to the DMR process used in post-production, IMAX increases the image quality of the film tenfold. Everything is magnified by the laser projection system which offers a chromatic range that is as wide as it is precise and superior performance to the bulb projector found in conventional rooms.

The director’s vision preserved

The visual power of the IMAX makes it possible to transcribe a breathtaking image, and above all, the director’s vision. From the power of the sound to the details of the image, the IMAX teams work daily with the filmmaker to ensure that the film preserves its vision in every detail.

Powerful and precise sound

Perfect sound regardless of the place in the room: this is the promise of IMAX. Always with a view to optimizing the cinematographic experience, nothing is left to chance. The adjustment is meticulous: the precision of the sound is aligned and calibrated every morning. Whether a character is whispering or an entire city is exploding, all of the film’s sound elements will send shivers down the spine of the viewer.
