AB Vidéo (France)

From CLG Wiki

1st (known) Logo

(1990's-2005)

Logo: On a black background, we see the AB logo zooming in, with the outline of the same logo zooming out. A spot shines through logo, then multiple outlines stretch out of the logo's center. After a few seconds, "VIDEO" zooms in with a trail effect. The text "présente" falls off the top of the screen and passes through the logo, until it disappears.

FX/SFX: The logo moving and zooming.

Music/Sounds: A bang, then a futuristic synth pad theme completed with whooshes, ending by a drum roll.

Availability: Rare. Seen on some releases of the company, as most of them have the TF1 Vidéo logo instead.

Editor's Note: None.

2nd Logo

(2005-)

Logo: We see various blue, white and red light streaks flying all over the screen, then forming the AB logo. It ends up flashing, and "VIDEO" appears below it in a trail effect. The logo slowly zooms out on a star/space-like background, while "PRESENTE" flashes below the logo.

FX/SFX: The flashing lights effects and the logo forming.

Music/Sounds: A simple electronica tune.

Availability: Seen on most current releases from the company. If you own French DVD and/or Blu-ray releases of animes like Dragon Ball and its sequel Dragon Ball Z, Seinto Seiya, Fist of the North Star, or even Sailor Moon, you'll most likely see this logo.

Editor's Note: None.
