IMAX Singapore vs GVMax Singapore Comparison: Image Screen Quality and Sound system

Quick Comparison between IMAX Lido Singapore vs GVMax Vivo City Singapore. Image and Screen Quality, Sitting Arrangement and Sound System. 

GVMAX vs IMAX Singapore Screen Size. 
GVMAX Singapore - Vivo City
GVmax is currently holding the largest Cinema Screen in Singapore with its width 22.4 meters 

IMAX shaw lido is 19m x 9.5m. even though it's smaller by 3.4 meters but it will appear larger than GVMAX because of the seating arrangement. 

GVMAX vs IMAX Singapore seating arrangement. 
Nothing new for the GVMax seating arrangment, in the nutshell it's just a normal seating arrangement. IMAX’s customised their seating arrangement based on theatre geometry, which maximises your field of view. The high-gain screen results in exceptionally bright images and unparalleled 3D effect. The screen is also slightly curved and sits closer to the audience, creating a larger effective screen, which is equivalent to a 20% to 230% increased in screen area. 



GVMAX Singapore is much better than IMAX Singapore with its Dolby Atmos (64 unique speaker feeds)
Dolby® Atmos™ introduces powerful new listening experiences for the movies, with sound that truly envelops you and allows you to hear the whole picture. With Dolby Atmos, filmmakers can now precisely position and move sounds anywhere in a theatre—even overhead—to heighten the realism and impact of every scene. watch the video about Atmos here

IMAX Singapore is using laser-aligned digital surround sound 7.1 and IMAX®’s patented theatre geometry are to deliver the world’s most immersive movie experience. watch the video here

IMAX Singapore has a higher image resolution compared to GVMax because of the dual projectors design. 
The integrated suite of proprietary IMAX ® technologies with dual digital projectors, laser-aligned digital surround sound and IMAX®’s patented theatre geometry are to deliver the world’s most immersive movie experience.

All Imax Digital 3D theaters, on the other hand, use either Christie or Barco (since early 2012) 2K dual-projector systems which give twice the resolution of full-HD and a brighter 3D image. What this means is that RealD 3D auditoriums with 4K projectors can provide a visibly sharper image, especially with movies shot on similarly high-resolution cameras.

RealD 3D  projectors like Sony's 4K Digital Cinema models use a special lens to project 3D visuals which can provide viewers with up to four times the resolution of full-HD 1080p. However, not all RealD 3D auditoriums have 4K projectors--many feature 2K digital projectors (GVMAX Singapore)--so you may have to check with your favorite cinema chain's Web site to find out which they use.

This is another controversy, people calling it "Fake IMAX", the true IMAX has a screen 23x30m (Square format) take a note also that the IMAX Singapore is not the true IMAX, it's the digital IMAX with the resolution 19 x 9.5m .
