About IMAX Corporation
IMAX Corporation operates as an entertainment technology company worldwide. The company specializes in motion picture technologies and large-format film presentations.
The companys principal business is the design and manufacture of large-format digital and film-based theater systems (IMAX theater systems) and the sale or lease of such IMAX theater systems or the contribution of IMAX theater systems under revenue-sharing arrangements with its customers. The companys customers who purchase, lease, or otherwise acquire the IMAX theater systems are theater exhibitors that operate commercial theaters (particularly multiplexes), museums, science centers, or destination entertainment sites.
The company is also engaged in the production and distribution of original large-format films, the provision of post-production services for large-format films, the conversion of two-dimensional (2D) and three-dimensional (3D) Hollywood feature films for exhibition on IMAX theater systems worldwide, the operation of four IMAX theaters, and the provision of services in support of IMAX theaters and the IMAX theater network throughout the globe.
The companys theater systems include a specialized IMAX projector, advanced sound systems and specialty screens. Its activities include the sale and lease of, and provision of services related to, its theater systems; films (production and digital re-mastering of films, the distribution of film products to the IMAX theater network, post-production services for films); joint revenue sharing arrangements (the provision of its theater system); theater system maintenance (the provision of maintenance services related to its theater systems); theater operations (owning equipment, operating, managing or participating in the revenues of IMAX theaters); and other activities, which include the sale of after market parts and camera rentals.
IMAX Systems, Theater System Maintenance and Joint Revenue Sharing Arrangements
The companys primary products are its theater systems. Traditional IMAX film-based theater systems include a rolling loop large-format 15-perforation film frame, 70mm format (15/70-format) projector; a 6-channel, digital audio system delivering up to 12,000 watts of sound; a screen with a proprietary coating technology; and 3D glasses cleaning equipment. As part of the arrangement to sell or lease its theater systems, the company provides advice on theater planning and design and supervision of installation services. Theater systems are also leased or sold with a license for the use of the IMAX brand. IMAX theater systems come in five configurations: the GT projection system for the larger IMAX theaters; the SR system for smaller theaters; the IMAX MPX and IMAX digital systems, which are targeted for multiplex complexes; and a fifth category of theater systems featuring heavily curved and tilted screens that are used in dome shaped theaters. The GT, SR, IMAX MPX and IMAX digital systems are flat screens that have a minimum of curvature and tilt and can exhibit both 2D and 3D films, while the screen components in dome shaped theaters are generally 2D. As of December 31, 2009, the IMAX theater network included 430 theater systems (309 commercial, 121 institutional) operating in 48 countries.
IMAX Flat Screen and IMAX Dome Systems: IMAX flat screen and IMAX Dome systems comprise approximately 103 of the companys opened theater base and primarily reside in institutional settings, such as museums and science centers.
IMAX 3D GT and IMAX 3D SR Systems: IMAX 3D theaters utilize a flat screen 3D system, which produces realistic 3D images on an IMAX screen. To create the 3D effect, the audience uses either polarized or electronic glasses that separate the left-eye and right-eye images. The IMAX 3D projectors can project both 2D and 3D films, allowing theater owners to exhibit either type of film. The company has launched a smaller IMAX 3D system called IMAX 3D SR, a patented theater system configuration that combines a proprietary theater design, an automated projector, and specialized sound system components. As of December 31, 2009, there were a total of 139 IM

SWOT, which stands for Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities and Threats, is an analytical framework that identifies the internal and external factors that are favorable and unfavorable for a company.
Enhanced SWOT Analysis
Enhanced SWOT is a 3×3 grid that arranges strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats into one scheme:
- How to use the strengths to take advantage of the opportunities?
- How to use the strengths to reduce likelihood and impact of the threats?
- How to overcome the weaknesses that obstruct taking advantage of the opportunities?
- How to overcome the weaknesses that can make the threats a reality?
Upon answering these questions a company can develop a project plan to improve its business performance.
PESTEL (also termed as PESTLE) is an ideal tool to strategically analyze what influence different outside factors – political, economic, sociocultural, technological, environmental and legal – exert on a business to later chart its long term targets.
Being part of the external analysis when carrying out a strategic assessment or performing a market study, PESTEL gives an overview of diverse macro-environmental factors that any company should thoughtfully consider. By perceiving these outside environments, businesses can maximally benefit from the opportunities while minimizing the threats to the organization.
Key Factors Examined by PESTEL Analysis:
- Political – What opportunities and pressures are brought by political bodies and what is the degree of public regulations’ impact on the business?
- Economic – What economic policies, trends and structures are expected to affect the organization, what is this influence’s degree?
- Sociological – What cultural and societal aspects will work upon the demand for the business’s products and operations?
- Technological – What impact do the technological aspects, innovations, incentives and barriers have on the organization?
- Environmental – What environmental and ecological facets, both locally and farther afield, are likely to predetermine the business?
- Legal – What laws and legislation will exert influence on the style the business is carried out?
IFE, EFE, IE Matrices
The Internal Factor Evaluation matrix (IFE matrix) is a strategic management tool helping audit or evaluate major weaknesses and strengths in a business’s functional areas. In addition, IFE matrix serves as a basis for identifying and assessing relationships amongst those areas. The IFE matrix is utilised in strategy formulation.
The External Factor Evaluation matrix (EFE matrix) is a tool of strategic management that is typically utilised to assess current market conditions. It is an ideal instrument for visualising and prioritising the threats and opportunities a firm is facing.
The essential difference between the above mentioned matrices lies in the type of factors incorporated in the model; whilst the latter is engaged in internal factors, the former deals exceptionally with external factors – those exposed to social, political, economic, legal, etc. external forces.
Being a continuation of the EFE matrix and IFE matrix models, the Internal External matrix (IE matrix) rests upon an investigation of external and internal business factors integrated into one suggestive model.
Porter Five Forces Analysis
The Porter’s five forces analysis studies the industry of operation and helps the company find new sources of competitive advantage. The analysis surveys an industry through five major questions:
- What composes a threat of substitute products and services?
- Is there a threat of new competitors entering the market?
- What is the intensity of competitive rivalry?
- How big is the bargaining power of buyers?
- How significant is the bargaining power of suppliers?
VRIO stands for Value, Rarity, Imitability, Organization. This analysis helps to evaluate all company’s resources and capabilities and bring them together into one aggregate table that includes:
- Tangible resources
- Intangible resources
- Innovation and Creativity
- Organizational capabilities
The result of the analysis gives a clear picture of company’s competitive and economic implications, answering the questions if the resources mentioned above are:
- Costly to imitate?
- Organized properly?
