1st Logo (Early-Mid 1980s)

LwULU1MjLGTaWJjvg0RX Q11789.jpeg

Logo: On a black background, we see the words "DELTA" in a futuristic font with "HOME VIDEO" written below in ITC Busorama, the same font as the old CTW logo. Both words glow in green and pink colors that move toward the center from both ends into a diamond shape. After a few seconds, a copyright scroll occurs. When that finishes, the logo reappears.

Technique: Scanimation.

Music/Sounds: "Star Games" by George Fenton and Kenneth Freeman, a synthesized disco tune off of KPM's Handplayed by Robots production music album.

Availability: Rare. Seen on old PAL tapes from Australia and New Zealand.

Legacy: A very ugly logo from the time, both in text and colors. The music's pretty cool, though.

2nd Logo (Mid 1980s)

Logo: On a space background, we see dust, then we transform one of the dust pieces into the rainbow colored word "DELTA" in the same style as before. A diamond shine appears from left to right, and then disappears, leaving out only the rainbow "DELTA" text.

Technique: 2D animation.

Music/Sounds: An ascending synthesizer theme, with two synthesized whooshes, ending in a synth hit.

Availability: Seen on the Australian VHS release of Marbella, as well as other Delta Home Video titles.

Legacy: Better than before, but at least the text is still a bit ugly.


3rd Logo (Mid 1980s)

Logo: On a black background, an curved orange filmstrip with shining sprocket holes swirls in. Then, several maroon and white squares fly in from the right onto the strip, forming a white D on its edge. Then, "VIDEO DELTA", with "VIDEO" in a much smaller size on the top right of "DELTA", fades in below. The words then shine with a cheap sparkle wipe effect and the filmstrip shines on the edges.

Variant: A still version exists, with the "DELTA" text in yellow and the entire top half of the background layered with diagonally-placed "DELTA"'s in grey.

Technique: Standard computer effects.

Music/Sounds: A six-note synth guitar tune accompanied by a rapid series of electronic sounds as the squares form the D.

Availability: Same as before, but should be easier to find. Seen on The Oracle.

Legacy: A much better effort than before, even with the weird naming positioning (though it makes more sense then some) and cheesy animation.
