Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The Wikipedia machine says that 35mm Academy format and Imax 70mm compares like this:

... and while searching for that, I saw somewhere online that IMAX Digital is 4K.

I've been accused of being a Marxist, yet while Harpo's my favourite, it's Groucho I'm always quoting. Odd, that.

And it's perhaps worth mentioning that 4K is a vast amount of data - it's about 2.5TB for a 90 minute movie.

Uncompressed, the data rate is nearly 500MB/s.

2K is more manageable. You can do 2K editing on a fast home PC now.
