ts. As part of the arrangement to sell or lease its theater systems, the company provides advice on theater planning and design and supervision of installation services. Theater systems are also leased or sold with a license for the use of the IMAX brand. The GT, SR, IMAX MPX and IMAX digital systems are ‘flat’ screens that have a minimum of curvature and tilt and could exhibit both 2D and 3D films, while the screen components in dome shaped theaters are 2D only and are popular with the company’s institutional clients. As of December 31, 2013, the company had entered into joint revenue sharing arrangements for 645 systems with 38 partners, 382 of which were in operation. IMAX Flat Screen and IMAX Dome Theater Systems: As of December 31, 2013, there were 82 IMAX flat screen and IMAX Dome theater systems in the IMAX network. IMAX flat screen and IMAX Dome systems primarily have been installed in institutions, such as museums and science centers. IMAX 3D GT and IMAX 3D SR Theater Systems: IMAX 3D theaters utilize a flat screen 3D system, which produces realistic 3D images on an IMAX screen. To create the 3D effect, the audience uses either polarized or electronic glasses that separate the left-eye and right-eye images. The IMAX 3D projectors could project both 2D and 3D films, allowing theater owners the flexibility to exhibit either type of film. As of December 31, 2013, there were 59 IMAX 3D GT and IMAX 3D SR theater systems in operation. IMAX MPX Theater Systems: The company launched a large-format theater system designed specifically for use in multiplex theaters. Known as IMAX MPX, this theater system had lower capital and operating costs than other IMAX theater systems and is intended to improve a multiplex owner’s financial returns and to allow for the installation of IMAX theater systems in markets that might previously not have been able to support one. The IMAX digital theater system has supplanted the IMAX MPX theater system as the company’s multiplex product. Accordingly, all IMAX MPX theater systems have been upgraded to IMAX digital theater systems. IMAX Digital: Xenon Theater Systems. The company offers a proprietary IMAX xenon-based digital projection system that it delivers imagery compared with other digital systems and that is consistent with the company’s brand. As of December 31, 2013, the company had installed 696 xenon-based digital theater systems, including 130 upgrades, and had an additional 345 xenon-based digital theater systems in its backlog. IMAX Digital: Laser Theater Systems: One of the company’s key initiatives is the development of a next-generation laser-based digital projection system, which it plans to begin rolling out in 2014. The company’s the IMAX laser projectors would present greater brightness and clarity, a wider colour gamut and deeper blacks, and consume less power and last longer than existing digital technology, capable of illuminating the largest screens in the IMAX theater network. As of December 31, 2013, the company had 62 laser-based digital theater systems in its backlog. Films Film Production and Digital Re-mastering (IMAX DMR) The company developed a proprietary technology to digitally re-master Hollywood films into IMAX digital cinema package format or 15/70-format film for exhibition in IMAX theaters at a modest cost that is incurred by the company. This system, known as IMAX DMR, digitally improves the image resolution of motion picture films for projection on IMAX screens while maintaining or improving the visual clarity and sound quality to levels for which The IMAX Experience is known. In 2013, 38 films were converted through the IMAX DMR process and released to theaters in the IMAX network by film studios. These films were The Grandmaster: The IMAX Experience (Jet Tone Films and Sil-Metropole Organization, January 2013, China only); Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters: An IMAX 3D Experience (Paramount Pictures, January 2013); Top Gun: An IMAX 3D Experience (Paramount Pictures, February 2013); Journey to the West: Conquering the Demons: An IMAX 3D Experience (Bingo Movie Development Ltd, February 2013, China only); A Good Day to Die Hard
