IMAX Corporation Continues Roll-Out of its Next-Generation Laser Projection System at the Smithsonian and Pacific Science Center

IMAX Corporation announced it is launching its new laser projection system in the Airbus IMAX Theater at the Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center in Chantilly, Va., and in the Boeing IMAX Theater at Pacific Science Center in Seattle, Washington on May 1, 2015 just in time for the release of Marvel's highly anticipated film, Avengers: Age of Ultron. The ground-breaking technology will provide audiences at the theatres with unparalleled brightness, contrast, color and sound. The new system also includes IMAX's next-generation sound technology that delivers even greater power and precision for ultimate audio immersion. It has been upgraded to 12 discrete channels plus sub-bass, and includes additional side channels as well as new overhead channels that will improve the system's ability to position sounds around the audience and further ensure every seat is the best in the house. IMAX has signed more than 71 laser system deals to date with iconic venues such as AMC Theatres' Lincoln Square 13, Universal Citywalk Stadium 19 and Metreon 16 IMAX locations, the Empire Leicester Square IMAX, the Darling Harbor IMAX, as well as several upcoming Wanda IMAX locations in China. The IMAX release of Marvel's Avengers: Age of Ultron will be digitally re-mastered into the image and sound quality of An IMAX 3D Experience with proprietary IMAX DMR technology. The crystal-clear images coupled with IMAX's customized theatre geometry and powerful digital audio create a unique environment that will make audiences feel as if they are in the movie.
