CHINA PARTNERSHIP: Imax is partnering with Chinese TV maker TCL to design and manufacture a high-end home theater system aimed at China's growing ranks of affluent movie fans.

LAUNCH IN 2015: The joint venture is expected to launch the new system in China and other markets starting in 2015. The home theatres will feature "Imax-enhanced" films delivered straight to homes through a secure system.

PRICEY SETUP: Financial terms and the "premium" system's selling price were not disclosed, though Imax said it would cost less than the company's existing Private Theatre system, which retails for $2 million.
