system components, which are specifically designed for IMAX theaters. It holds patents on the geometrical design of IMAX theaters. The company’s arrangements for theater system equipment involve a sale, sales-type lease or joint revenue sharing arrangement. As part of the purchase, lease or other acquisition of an IMAX theater system, the company also advises the customer on theater design, supervises the installation of the theater systems and provides projectionists with training in using the equipment. The company’s typical arrangement also includes trademark license rights whose term tracks the term of the underlying agreement. For a separate fee, the company provides ongoing maintenance and extended warranty services for the theater system. The company also offers certain commercial clients IMAX theater systems under joint revenue sharing arrangements. The company has two basic types of joint revenue sharing arrangements: traditional and hybrid. Under a traditional joint revenue sharing arrangement, the company provides the IMAX theater system in return for a portion of the customer’s IMAX box-office receipts and, in some cases, concession revenues, rather than requiring the customer to pay a fixed upfront payment or annual minimum payments. The company retains title to the theater system equipment components, and the equipment is returned to it at the conclusion of the arrangement.

As of December 31, 2014, the company had installed 817 xenon-based digital theater systems, including 138 upgrades, and has an additional 326 xenon-based digital theater systems in its backlog. IMAX Digital: Laser Theater Systems: As of December 31, 2014, the company had 71 laser-based digital theater systems in its backlog. IMAX Flat Screen and IMAX Dome Theater Systems: As of December 31, 2014, there were 72 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. As of December 31, 2014, there were 45 IMAX 3D GT and IMAX 3D SR theater systems in operation. Films Film Production and Digital Re-mastering (IMAX DMR) The company has 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. This technology, known as IMAX DMR, digitally enhances the image resolution of motion picture films for projection on IMAX screens while maintaining or enhancing the visual clarity and sound quality to levels for which The IMAX Experience is known. Various films have featured select sequences shot with IMAX cameras, including Transformers: Age of Extinction: An IMAX 3D Experience, released in June 2014 and Interstellar: The IMAX Experience, released in November 2014, which featured an hour of footage shot with IMAX film cameras. In addition, movies, including Guardians of the Galaxy: An IMAX 3D Experience, released in August 2014 and I, Frankenstein: An IMAX 3D Experience, released in January 2014, has featured footage taking advantage of the larger projected IMAX aspect ratio.

In 2014, the company released seven local language IMAX DMR films, including six in China and one in India. In 2014, 40 films were converted through the IMAX DMR process and released to theaters in the IMAX network by film studios as compared to 38 films in 2013.
