IMAX 3D glasses use linear polarization, and are not interchangeable with RealD glasses.
IMAX 3D uses dual 2K or 4K projectors on screens from 80 to 120 feet wide.
RealD can use single or dual 2K or 4K projectors on screens from 40 to 100 feet wide.
For the brightest 3D image, dual projectors are best.
Is there a difference between 3d glasses and IMAX 3d glasses?
The glasses for IMAX Digital 3D are larger to accommodate for the larger screens while the RealD 3D are just the standard size of 3D glasses. The audio in the IMAX 3D is uncompressed and therefore seems to be of a better quality as opposed to RealD 3D whose specifications on sound are not standard but vary by theatre.
Is IMAX and 3d the same thing?
IMAX 3D: The difference between IMAX 3D and regular 3D is as vast as the difference between an IMAX movie and an ordinary one. 3D requires two images – one for the left eye and one for the right eye – to be projected onto the screen at the same time.
Will 3d glasses work in any cinema?
Can 3D TV glasses work at the cinema? If the 3DTV requires active shutter glasses, then no, they won’t show any 3D effect at the movie theater.
Are all 3d glasses the same?
Each set of 3D glasses is compatible with a particular frequency. There’s no real reason why all TV/glasses manufacturers don’t use the same frequency – other than capitalism. They make money on the glasses, just like they make money on the screens.
