1st Logo (1987-1990)

Nicknames: The A and the Fan, "The Stylised Fan"

Logo: On a black background, a flash brings forth four spheres of light which move to all 4 sides of the screen. They move to form a box, which reveals theletter "A" and a "fan" via a Venetian blind effect. Another sphere of light places a line under the "A" and the "fan". As the word ATLANTIC appears via a Venetian blind effect, the background turns into a blue-black gradient and a (R) trademark symbol appears to the upper right of the "fan". A small flash of light brings forth the word V I D E O, colored in tan.
