This in my mind is a good thing – theaters with IMAX screens get stuck with IMAX ‘films’ – good or bad, if it’s an underperformer, their stuck with it. Theaters that have their own speciality large screens have the upper hand with presenting more films than what IMAX has licensed to show. Add to the fact that Christie has laser projectors in the pipeline for theaters to install and boost the brightness for 3D features; and speciality screens can feature more speakers and/or Dolby Atmos, Auro 11.1 sound – IMAX seems antiquated.

The higher education market was an early adopter of the technology, being attracted by its low cost of ownership and minimal maintenance. For example, one of the biggest business schools in the UK chose to upgrade projectors across their seven major 70-seat lecture theaters. Concerns over the need for continuous lamp changes and filter cleaning on ceiling mounted projectors for happy status and the favorable ROI drove the decision towards laser technology.
