Nickname: "The Red Circle-V"

Logo: Same as the 1986 Vestron Video logo, except the word "INTERNATIONAL" is added under "VESTRON VIDEO".

  • On releases from Spanish-speaking countries in Latin America, "INTERNATIONAL" is replaced with "ESPAÑOL".
  • Another version has a violet Circle-V.

FX/SFX: Same as the 1986 Vestron Video logo.

Music/Sounds: Same as the 1986 Vestron Video logo.

Availability: Rare. This international version of the logo can be seen only on PAL versions of Vestron Video VHS tapes. This logo can be seen on NTSC tapes from (at least) Canada, Mexico, Brazil or Japan and SECAM tapes from France or Russia. The "ESPAÑOL" variant has been spotted on a Spanish-subtitled cassette of Into the Fire (also known as The Legend of Wolf Lodge). The "ESPAÑOL" variant was also, according to a YouTube comment, seen on a 2005 Spanish-dubbed TeleFutura airing of the 1986 film Salvador before the Hemdale logo (possibly because TeleFutura used the Spanish VHS's master).

Editor's Note: Same as the 1986 Vestron Video logo.
