μ-VIS on "Attenborough and the Sea Dragon"

The Ichthyosaur at μ-VIS
The Ichthyosaur at μ-VIS

Our 3D imaging capabilities brought a long-extinct 200-million-year-old ichthyosaur to life.

"A remarkable 200-million-year-old fossil - the bones of an ichthyosaur, a giant sea dragon - has been discovered on the Jurassic coast of Britain. David Attenborough joins the hunt to bring this ancient creature's story to life. Using state-of-the-art imaging technology and CGI, the team reconstruct the skeleton and create the most detailed animation of an ichthyosaur ever made." [source]

The show was aired on Sunday 7 January, 2018 on BBC One
