Background: RPC-TV is a television network, and is headquartered in Panama City, Panama, with repeaters throughout the country. The station broadcasts in NTSC format and in Panama City also in DVB-T format. Founded on late 1958, RPC is the oldest commercial TV station in Panama and Central America overall, airing imported shows, programming for kids, and local and international sporting events. It didn't use a logo until 1960.

1st Logo

RPC

(1960-1968)

Logo: TBA

FX/SFX: Unknown, as it's logo for now is only a capture for it's long-lost existence.

Cheesy Factor: TBA

Music/Sounds: TBA

Availability: Long since extinct. We are unsure if there's a video of this logo, as their first of it's broadcasting days are for now history.

Scare Factor: Low. The text and the camera may upset some, but this is nothing compared to it's follow-up.

2nd Logo

(1968-1983)

RPC-0

Logo: TBA

Trivia: RPC's iconic logo came from a pre-Columbian piece called Huaca.

FX/SFX: None, which makes this logo more ominous.

Cheesy Factor: TBA

Music/Sounds: None, which -unfortunately- adds to the scare factor.

Music/Sounds Variant: On startups and closedowns, they used it's national anthem (Himno Istmeño) as it's music. Sometimes it would use it's stock music, "Lamento" composed by Avelino Muñoz.

Availability: Extinct.

Scare Factor: It ultimately depends on how you feel of the subject matter.

  • Low to nightmare for the silent/standard variant, It's the Huaca's design which makes you the chills, or the still but somber nature of the background and the logo itself. Sadly, they managed to transmit to all those poor Panamanians, which would jump for watching this sudden sequence from nowhere, which undeniably raises the scare factor.
  • Medium for both musical variants, the somber nature and the Huaca are still there, but just the fact that they added music would be tamer than the first logo.
  • However, it's low for those who used to it.

3rd Logo

TBA, and so are the rest.
