IMAX links with Laser Light Engines (LLE)

IMAX formed a strategic partnership with Laser Light Engines through equity investment.
As stated previously in this post, Laser Light Engines announced they had solved the laser speckle problem. There were rumors about potential customers interested in the LLE laser technique, now we know who this customer was.

In a press release, IMAX announced that it has signed a memorandum of understanding with Laser Light Engines, a leading developer and manufacturer of ultra-high brightness, laser-driven light sources. Under the terms of the agreement, IMAX plans to make an equity investment in Laser Light Engines, and Laser Light Engines would develop a custom version of its laser light technology for exclusive use in IMAX digital projection systems. Laser Light Engines would additionally provide outsourced research and development for new features designed to further enhance and distinguish The IMAX Experience for IMAX theatre operators, film studios and moviegoers.

Richard Gelfond, CEO of IMAX, said that he sees Laser Light Engines as an ideal partner for IMAX. Doug Darrow, chief executive officer of Laser Light Engines, is thrilled to be tapped by IMAX Corporation which, he thinks, is strong validation of Laser Light Engines' technology.
