How did roku make their fish tank background

I was wondering how Roku made their fish tank background
It has a 3d environment, animated fish, and seems quite complex.

I highly doubt a roku device can handle that good of graphics with 3D fish and background, animations, it just seems to complex for a roku

My thought was they rendered a looped video in blender and then simply play that on the screen

Does anyone know how it was really made?

Re: How did roku make their fish tank background

If I remember watching the screen I don't think this was a looping video, but being that this was developed by Roku themselves I would assume this is coded at the core of the device (like Brightscript is) or done in the NDK as Roku would obviously have free access to it.  I would be extremely surprised if this was done in Brightscript.

Re: How did roku make their fish tank background

This has been discussed multiple times.   If I remember correctly they didn't develop it; they got it from someone else, but I can't remember the details.  It wasn't originally developed for the Roku platform.  Someone posted the developer way back when, but I can't find it now.
