"What makes an IMAX Enhanced TV different from a regular 4K UHD TV?.
IMAX Enhanced displays must meet additional requirements over and above what most 4K UHD TVs deliver today in order to receive the IMAX Enhanced program certification.
The IMAX Enhanced program features the best displays that meet the program’s standards across proper calibration, resolution, color, brightness, contrast, scale of image and sound capabilities. The carefully prescribed set of the highest audio and video specifications are defined by a certification committee of IMAX and DTS engineers and Hollywood’s leading technical specialists to ensure the devices that feature the IMAX Enhanced logo deliver flawless playback of picture and sound as the filmmakers intended."
"What are the recommended and minimum channel count requirements (including the number of subwoofers)?
For optimal playback of IMAX Enhanced content, the recommended speaker layout for an IMAX Enhanced system is 7.2.4 with seven speakers in the horizontal plane, two subwoofers and four height speakers. 5.1.4 is the minimum layout for IMAX Enhanced A/V receivers and processors. Due to various constraints, consumers may opt to install fewer speakers than the recommended and minimum layouts noted above. In such cases, the spatial remapping engine included in the DTS:X decoder will properly render and remap audio to the available speakers.
The 5.1.4 speaker layout includes the following physical speaker locations: L, C, R, Ls, Rs, Lh, Rh, Lhr, Rhr and one or more subwoofers (LFE). In a 7.1.4 system, the speaker locations are as follows: L, C, R, Lss, Rss, Lsr, Rsr, Lh, Rh, Lhr, Rhr and one or more subwoofers (LFE). For specific speaker locations, please refer to the following table:"
