IMAX DCPs (both 2D and 3D) must be differentiated from conventional DCPs. There are three places in the Naming Convention where this should be done: The Title, the Resolution, and the Facility Code.
IMAX should appear in the Title. The resolution should read:
4K as appropriate.
IMX should appear in the Facility Code. Adding
IMAX to the title may be difficult given the 14 character limit, so
IMX can be used instead. Hyphens can also be eliminated if necessary.

Since a 3D feature often has both a 2D and a 3D trailer, the stereo or monoscopic denotation needs to be in both the Title and the Content Type fields. If a 2D feature has only a 2D trailer, no
2D denotation is necessary.
