Photorealistic imagery of the Parthenon created by Paul Debevec and his team at the ICT Graphics Lab can be seen in an upcoming Nova documentary, “Secrets of the Parthenon.”
The footage was built from digital photography, lighting measurements and three-dimensional laser scans captured in Athens, London, Paris and Basel to accurately record the structure and appearance of the Parthenon and its sculptures. The final imagery – realistically depicting the structure as it stands today and its appearance during the golden age of ancient Greece – relied on numerous technological innovations in high dynamic range imaging, realistic lighting simulation and surface reflectance measurement. “Secrets of the Parthenon” will air Tuesday, Jan. 29 at 8 p.m. on PBS.
