Background: VCX (Video Cassette X-Rated) is a pioneering adult video distributor formed in the late 70's by Norman Arno, who had known connections to the Peraino crime family responsible for funding the production of the infamous 1972 porn chic hit Deep Throat. VCX transferred many adult films, such as Debbie Does Dallas, to VHS and Betamax in the early days of video. Some of these titles made it to laserdisc through Image Entertainment. The company also made video history by being one of the first to market and sell blank video cassettes (with the VCX brand) in partnership with TDK. Today, VCX still exists, albeit under different ownership, specializing in repackaing the "classics" of the VCX library to DVD.

1st Logo
(1980-Late 90's)

VCII / VCX - CLG WikiVCII / VCX - CLG WikiVCX - Variant (A)
VCX - Variant (B)
Logo: On a space background, we see the words " the future is... ". Then, the letters V (in red), C (in yellow), and X (in blue) zoom out with trail effects, and disappear. Then the same thing happens again, only this time, a flash brings forth "VCX" in silver letters, and a yellow spark wipes in the words "...is the future". Then the whole thing disappears and we zoom in on a symbol, which looks like two bent lines forming an X (><) with a red triangle in the upper half. The words "THE FINEST IN ADULT ENTERTAINMENT" fly in from the bottom.

Variants: Later versions of this logo omit "The future is/is the future." We start over a starfield without text before the VCX letters trail out. The yellow spark writes in "THE FINEST IN VIDEO CASSETTES" in a silver Impact font. The rest of the logo plays out as before. Sometime in the mid-to-late 90's however, a version would omit the second half of the animation with a cheap chyron screen on a blue background (looking like a VCR menu of the time) with the address and URL of VCX.

FX/SFX/Cheesy Factor: Everything; choppy animation, cheap chyron, and that bad zoom-in. Additionally, it doesn't take a genius to figure out "The future is... VCX ...is the future" is redundant.

Music/Sounds: A deep 4-note synth tune that repeats itself for the whole duration, plus some whirring sounds when the letters animate, and a space-like synth flourish for the ending. Later videos used a stock track composed by Keith Mansfield known as "World Champion;" used in other places such as the late 70's CTV Special Presentation bumper. Some versions of this logo feature a female voiceover: "This is a VCX video presentation."

Availability: Uncommon. VHS tapes from the company continued to have this logo up into the late 90's. The version with "World Champion" should be easier to come by as it was the "theme" for VCX during much of its history. VCX still exists as a company to this day, specializing in re-releases of 70's/80's adult film classics on DVD, touting itself as "Home Of The Classics." However, they utilize a different logo animation. This is also on a few mainstream (read: R-rated) tapes from VCX, including Stamping Ground, a concert film featuring, among others, Pink Floyd and Santana.

Scare Factor
: High for the VCX music and medium for the "World Champion" version.
