1st Logo (1979-1980)

Nicknames: "The (Still) M-Circle", "(Still) Mirrored M-Circle"

Logo: On a buff background, we see the "Mirrored M" (in black and brown) from the American Magnetic Video logo behind the words "MAGNETIC VIDEO" in a white Microgramma Bold font, set in the center of the screen.

FX/SFX: None.

Music/Sounds: None.

Availability: Very scarce. It might be spotted on eBay UK (or any country's website where PAL tapes are sold, like Australia and Germany). It was seen on the PAL releases of The Making of Star Wars and 100 Rifles.

Editor's Note: None.

2nd Logo (1980-1981)

Nickname: "Magnetic Text"

Logo: On a black background, the text "Magnetic Video" in red is seen at the top of the screen. Below that, there is a copyright notice in yellow text. Then, the screen changes to have "Magnetic Video" centered and a bit larger, and gains the byline "A Twentieth Century-Fox Company" below in white. The whole text is set in the middle of the screen. The text stays on the screen for a few seconds before it cuts out.

FX/SFX: Just the text changing.

Music/Sounds: None.

Availability: Extremely rare. Tapes with this logo might turn up on eBay UK (or other sites) sometime. The Magnetic pre-cert release of Alien might have this.

Editor's Note: None.
