2nd Logo (May 14, 2002-May 25, 2004)[]

PDSC Logo 2

Logo: A globe zooms out and comes into focus. A laser then goes around the globe and fades out, revealing the logo with the "PDSC" text on top. It looks identical to the Panasonic Disc Manufacturing Corporation logo, but the disk is more hollow, is with grey and gold, has the text in silver, and the name has Services instead to go with the logo.

FX/SFX: The globe zooming, and the laser.

Music/Sounds: Same as the 2002-06 PDMC logo.

Availability: Very rare. It debuted at the end on 20th Century Fox DVDs such as the 2002 "Directors' Limited Edition" release of From Hell, and can also be seen on the Hot Shots! films, Super Troopers, Johnny Dangerously, the first release of The Day the Earth Stood Still (1951), a reissue of Dr. Dolittle, The Mary Tyler Moore Show: The Complete First Season, and Wizards. It can also be found on the 2002 Universal DVD of Butt-Ugly Martians: Boyz to Martians and Lions Gate's 2003 DVDs of Irreversible and Pokémon: Johto League Champions, Volume 3: Distance to the Johto League Championship.

Editor's Note: The CGI is very dated, but it's way better than the 1st logo.
