Logo description by SnowflakesOmega

Background: D-Theater is the certificate mark of D-VHS (as LaserVision is to LaserDisc). D-Theater tapes consisted of pre-recorded home video D-VHS releases distributed around 2002 and 2004 with the last film released on the format being 20th Century Fox's I, Robot. D-VHS/D-Theater tapes were special compared to traditional VHS and even DVDs due to their capabilities in HD playback (4 years before HD-DVD and Blu-Ray Disc) at 720p and 1080i. D-Theater tapes were only released on the United States and they were not distributed around Japan and South Korea, the other two countries mostly using the NTSC format. Most D-Theater tapes come with DTS audio.


Logo: On a black background a blue light draws in a metallic "D". The D then moves to the left for a white flare to bring up "THEATER", with the characters increasing their size into an eastern perspective. Two diagonal lines then wipe in between the vertical sides of "THEATER", and all the components are metallic. The whole logo zooms into the screen.

Variant: On a D-Theater demo the logo zooms up and turns into a plain 2D logo. A disclaimer then fades in below.

FX/SFX: The lights and items being drawn in.

Music/Sounds: A laser-like sweeping sound, followed by a reverbing choir.

Availability: Appears only on D-Theater tapes distributed across the US. D-VHS players are very rare but can be occasionally obtainable on EBay. D-Theater tapes are distributed by 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment, Universal Pictures Home Entertainment,DreamWorks Home Entertainment, Artisan Entertainment, Magnolia Home Entertainment and a few other companies.
