1st (known) Logo

European Video Corporation (Netherlands) - CLG WikiEuropean Video Corporation (Netherlands) - CLG WikiEuropean Video Corp. (1980s)

Left: The first part of the logo.
Middle: The last part of the logo.
Right: The variant used on some tapes, minus copyright screen.

: Against a
white background, we see the text "(c) EUROPEAN VIDEO CORP." with "NIJKERK THE NETHERLANDS" below that, both in a blocky yellow font. Below that is a scrolling strip of blue ticker (like the one used on news programs to present extra information) with several of the words "!!! EVC PRESENTS" written on it, in the same color and font. After a few seconds, it cuts to some random stock sports footage, eventually ending with a dual-bordered white rectangle with "EVC", in a "segmented" black font, zooming up, and the sports footage zooming out in the top right of the screen.

Variant: There is a variant that skips the first part altogether, and instead opts for a large blue ticker with "E.V.C. PRESENTS !!!." in a different yellow font, which scrolls throughout.

FX/SFX: The scrolling ticker, stock footage, and other effects...

Music/Sounds: A rather dreamy string tune plays on the first screen, and a jazzy disco tune with horns, bass & percussion plays during the sports footage.

Availability: Rare; may be seen on old European tapes from the time such as UK, Netherlands, etc.

Editor's Note: The music is pretty cool to listen to!
