How is IMAX different from 3d?
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.
Do IMAX 3d glasses work on normal 3d?
IMAX 3D glasses use linear polarization, and are not interchangeable with RealD glasses. 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.
What is difference between 3d 4dx and IMAX 3d?
4DX uses the 3D technology that the Multiplex Chain uses, which is generally RealD 3D. IMAX 3D is more immersive than RealD 3D, because it tends to let the 3D effects come out of the screen, while RealD 3D creates more depth behind the screen.
Are IMAX 3d movies worth it?
Digital IMAX is far less of an impressive experience, but it can still be worth it for a number of people, especially when viewing a movie in 3D. In the near future though, dual 4K laser IMAX should make the Digital IMAX experience a fair bit closer to the traditional, analog IMAX. Exciting times to be a movie goer.
