Closing Logo Group

1st (known) Logo



Videomax 1998-2003

Logo: On a black background, we see several rounded colored rectangles, each with a different object animating inside of them (blue features three play-symbol buttons and a tape symbol, teal has a series of pink balls spinning around in a circle, pink has a film canister bouncing down a staircase made of clapperboards, etc). The camera rotates to the top of the rectangles as laser beams strike the rectangles (lighting up some of the animations) and filmstrips fly around. Once we are fully at the top, the scattered rectangles come together, and after a flash, transform into a rounded box containing color bars, which zooms out. A shiny purple/blue/gray bar zooms out underneath the color bars and emits light before turning into "VIDEOMAX". It shines for a brief moment and then stops. 

FX/SFX: Pretty impressive CGI for late 90s standards.

Music/Sounds: A synthesized fanfare with laser sounds.

Availability: Uncommon, seen on movies and TV shows on VHS and DVD, including Videomax's dub of Detective Conan. It was also spotted on a 1996 Spanish VHS of Corrina, Corrina.
