It’s not unusual for our IM3™ (Inuktun Multi-Mission Modular) technology to end up on television, and with this week’s season premiere of History Channel’s Curse of Oak Island, we take the opportunity to highlight how our robotic crawlers and inspection cameras have captured the spotlight.
Most recently, Inuktun’s Spectrum 90™ pan, tilt and zoom (PTZ) inspection camera was rented for season six of The Curse of Oak Island; the team reported back that they were happy with the camera’s performance and even extended the rental period. Were they able to find the long sought-after pirate treasure? Only time will tell!
From hunting for gold to swimming with the sharks, the Spectrum 120HD™ high definition PTZ camera exercises its flexibility for working in a variety of atmospheres. And with its appearance on an episode of Discovery Channel’s Shark Week, the Spectrum 120HD™ proved that it really can handle the most inhospitable circumstances – even a shark bite! Check out its brave appearance in these posts here and here.
No stranger to Discovery Channel, Inuktun’s pipe inspection vehicles and miniature magnetic crawlers have also been filmed for Daily Planet, a series that explores the newest and coolest scientific developments that impact us every day. See the VT150 Vertical Crawler™ and MicroMag™ robotic inspection crawler featured in an episode here.
Elementary, a CBS series starring Jonny Lee Miller and Lucy Liu in a modern take on Sherlock Holmes living in New York City, previously featured Inuktun’s Versatrax 150™ pipe inspection robot crawler when Holmes and Watson needed to investigate a tunnel for clues. Check out the on-air #InuktunInTheWild sighting here.
While most often deployed for industrial remote visual inspection (RVI) and nondestructive testing (NDT) activities across the petrochemical, oil and gas, nuclear and marine sectors, our IM3™ technology provides reliable data collection results from places where humans can’t or shouldn’t go. With options to purchase or rent, inspectors truly have the power to capture meaningful video footage. No model release form necessary, says the ‘bots.
