Mediastation, a UK firm that specializes in computer generated imagery and 3D production, has just launched a product for aviation that lets airlines produce entirely CGI videos of cabins, aircraft etc.
Why is such a service so important? Well airlines hate taking aircraft out of revenue service for film shoots for obvious reasons. However, they frequently want to show what some aspect of their product looks like, such as American Eagle’s new CRJ700 first class section.
Mediastation’s new Digital Aerospace product lets airlines’ create lifelike movies entirely from photos and design drawings – the aircraft is never used. You can see the just released American Eagle movie here:
