IMAX Corporation and iZ Technology announced that IMAX will incorporate iZ Technology's playback engine in its next-generation audio-playback systems for distribution by IMAX to theaters worldwide.
"The IMAX Experience is unlike any other theatrical motion-picture experience in the world. It is the world's most immersive movie experience, and part of what makes it so unique is the exhilarating sound provided by state-of-the-art sound systems coupled with our giant screens," commented Jerry Sokol, IMAX Corporation's director of technology. "The RADAR System has the proven reliability and exceptional sound quality required to blend perfectly with our existing technologies and to provide theater-goers with the quality of performance IMAX patrons have come to expect."
"You couldn't find a better fit," said Barry Henderson, president and CEO at iZ Technology. "Our passion is and always has been high-performance, high-reliability audio recording and playback. Having RADAR technology as part of the IMAX Experience is very exciting for us as a company."
