IMAX 101: DMR (Video)

Por IMAX en la Enero 30, 2013

When seeing a movie in an IMAX® theatre, it’s like seeing a different movie altogether. Everything from the movie itself to the theatre’s technology and design has been developed and customized to make you believe you’re part of the action. One of the key ingredients to creating The IMAX Experience® is IMAX® DMR, or digital re-mastering.

There are two ways to create an IMAX movie. It can either be captured with the extremely high resolution IMAX® cameras or go through IMAX’s proprietary DMR process to enhance the film’s image and audio.

So what exactly does IMAX’s DMR process entail? Check out our latest IMAX 101 featuring DMR technology to find out:

3D has certainly become a popular format over the past few years and many of this year’s most highly-anticipated films will be presented in 3D. The format was designed to make you feel like you’re part of the movie, however, all 3D experiences are not the same.

IMAX has been revolutionizing the 3D moviegoing experience for more than two decades and we would like to take a moment to show you what makes IMAX® 3D movies so different.

Watch Coco as she discusses how we see 3 dimensions in our everyday lives and what it takes to create an immersive IMAX 3D experience in our most recent IMAX 101 video on IMAX 3D.

IMAX 101 Series: A Deeper Dive Into DMR

Por IMAX en la Septiembre 12, 2012

IMAX is Believing

Now that you’ve been formally introduced to our DMR technology, (if you haven’t, please click here to catch up) we’d like to dive a bit deeper into what happens behind the scenes during this transformative process.

As we’ve mentioned in other posts, your experience in an IMAX theatre is entirely different from any other theatre. One of the key reasons is because the content being shown in an IMAX theatre is significantly better than the content playing down the hall.

Want to know how it’s really done? Below we discuss the step-by-step process:

IMAX 101 Series: DMR (Digital Re-Mastering)—The Secret Sauce Behind The IMAX Experience®

For more than 40 years, IMAX has been in the business of creating experiences that take you beyond the edge of your seats to a world you’ve never imagined.

We started out as a large-format documentary maker focused on museums and science centers - taking audiences on adventures from the depths of the ocean to the outer limits of space.

While our documentary roots continue to be a key part of our business, we started to wonder what would happen if we brought The IMAX Experience to Hollywood?

Aspect Ratio: Your Point-of-View 

Experiencing your favorite movie in IMAX consists of plenty of speechless moments but isn’t quiet at all. It’s filled with breathtaking gasps and frightening shrieks as you assume the part of the hero or even the villain; taking death-defying leaps that make you clinch the hand of your neighbor and close your eyes before you hit the ground. Yes, IMAX is that real and there are several elements that go into creating those moments that you’ll never forget.

But what is it that makes you nearly lose your lunch from looking down from the world’s tallest building, the Burj Khalifa, with Tom Cruise in M:I4 or swinging from New York’s skyscapers with Spider-Man? Well it’s actually several things that go into creating that experience, one of which is the aspect ratio of the scene, which helps bring you into the action of the film.
