IMAX or Image MAXimum is known as a system of high-resolution cameras in film making and in film formats. In the late 1960s and early 1970s Graeme Ferguson, Roman Kroitor, Robert Kerr and William C. Shaw developed the first IMAX cinema projector. Unlike other standard projectors, IMAX’s high-resolution cameras provide greater width which gives movie-watcher more than 40% extra image than normal size. Now IMAX screens in India also available in different cities.

When IMAX was introduced, it was a radical change in the movie-going experience. Viewers were treated to the scene of a gently-curved giant screen more than seven stories tall (75 feet (23 m), with the tallest measuring 117 feet (36 m)) and steep stadium seating that made for a visually immersive experience.
