Unknown, but certainly a technology used in theaters to present stereo to 35mm films. It was created in 1984 as a competitor to Dolby Stereo, but mostly used on low budget and DTV movies.
1st Logo (1984?-1990s?)
This logo and/or video contains loud noises.
Please ensure your volume is turned down before watching videos of this logo.
Logo: We see a blue star with a gold outline zooming out on a space background. "ULTRA STEREO" (with the two words separated by a star) in a pink-blue gradient font zoom in and flip on the background. The star causes the logo to shine, and the shine resonates across the logo. "PRESENTED IN" (in a Century Gothic-type font) wipes in above.
FX/SFX: The animation in the logo. This is impressive CGI for the time, but the effects are sort of cheap and typical of the time.
Music/Sounds: A loud whoosh to begin the logo. A pound when the star hits the logo, along with dreamy synth music afterwards.
