Audiovisuales (Columbia)

From CLG Wiki

Background: Audiovisuales was the state programadora in Colombia, founded in 1976 by Inravision and the Colombian Ministry of Communications. In 1995-2003, it gained more and more hours from the failed programadoras, up to the point they were the only programadora on Canal A. After its death in 2003, both Inravision and Audiovisuales were liquidated.

1st Logo (January 1, 1984-March 19, 1989)

Nicknames: "The RGB Triangles", "The Droning Triangles"

Logo: On ablack background, a RGB triangle outline (tilted down to give the illusion of depth) emerges from the background and flips around before resting in the background. 2 more copies emerge and flip to their positions, each getting higher and bigger until it forms a row of triangles. Below it "AUDIOVISUALES" flips in below as "Ministerio de Comunicaciones" fades in.

FX/SFX: The logo forming, the text flipping in. All very cheap animation.

Music/Sounds: A droning synth tune with ringing piano noises and an announcer at the end.

Availability: Extinct.

Editor's Note: None.

2nd Logo (March 20, 1989-December 31, 1991)

Nicknames: "The RGB Triangles II", "The RGB Pyramids"

Logo: On a black/white gradientbackground, a RGB triangle is seen close up with a small opening, before it zooms out while stretching and expanding. Another triangle emerges and spins around before doing the same thing. A 3rd triangle flips into position and does the same. 2 white walls then fly down and zoom out revealing to be the same text as before. The same subtitle fades in as well.

FX/SFX: The triangles forming and changing, the text zooming out. Better than before, but still pretty cheap.

Music/Sounds: A more heroic sounding fanfare with the announcer as before.

Availability: Extinct.

Editor's Note: None.


3rd Logo (January 1, 1992-July 1, 1997)

Nicknames: "The RGB Triangle", "The Penrose Triangle"

Logo: On a zooming space background, several translucent red, green, and blue panels appear from all over the screen and come together to create 3 corner blocks, which start to spin around. As they line up to form a jagged ring, they spin around the screen and start to take position. The background goes into hyperspace with streaks as the pieces solidify and form a thick Penrose triangle, as well as "AUDIOVISUALES" flipping in one by one in gold. When the streaks disappear, "MINISTERIO DE COMUNICACIONES" fades in below and the text briefly shines.

FX/SFX: The pieces forming, the spinning and formation of the logo, the text flipping in.

Music/Sounds: Starts with a rising synth, along with a short horn tune. A bell and xylophone tune then plays, before ending with drums and a small fanfare. Sometimes, an announcer is also heard.

Availability: Extinct. Editor's Note: None.


4th Logo (July 2, 1997-2004)

Nicknames: "The RYB Triangle", "The Penrose Triangle II"

Logo: On a space background, stars zoom towards the screen as a piece from the 3rd logo emerges, but with yellow instead of green. As it spins, another one emerges and flips, as well as a 3rd one. They keep spinning until it reaches the center, where they form the same Penrose triangle as before. Below it, the same text animation occurs below, but slower and giving off particle effects as the letters flip in.

FX/SFX: The pieces spinning, the text flipping.

Music/Sounds: A majestic orchestral fanfare. An announcer may or may not be heard.

Availability: Extinct.
