1st (possibly) Logo (1989-1995)

Logo: On a black/blue gradient background, the letters of "EVS", with the S having a streaked white shadow next to it, slide in from the right one-by-one. Then the words of "ENTERTAINMENT", in a computerized serif font, fly in from the sides continuously.

Variant: There is a plain black background variant.

Technique: 8-bit computer animation.

Music/Sounds: A synth-brass fanfare leading into a dramatic crescendo.

Availability: Rare.

2nd Logo (1990-199?)

Logo: On an space background, we see an E, V and S flying through the screen to the left, as the lines fly in on the S, forming the word EVS. Some lighting filmstrips appear on the back, as the word ENTERTAINMENT flies in letter-by-letter with leaving a trail, forming the final result:


with EVS and ENTERTAINMENT separated from the logo. The logo then fades out.

Technique: 2D animation and the Cascom stock footage.

Music/Sounds: The music from the Virgin Video logo from 1986.

Availability: Rare.

3rd Logo (1992-1993)

Logo: A gray background with imposed copies of the EVS Entertainment logo in white flips into view. The red parts of the EVS wordmark slide in from the right, with shadows coming from the vertical sides. "ENTERTAINMENT" with a white border then types in below. Green Thai text then appears above / below the logo.

Technique: 8-bit computer animation.

Music/Sounds: A brass fanfare.

Availability: Very rare. Used solely in conjunction with the Eagle Group logo.

4th Logo (1994-1997)

Logo: Over a superimposed video of a cloudy blue sky, the letters of "EVS" flip from the right, top and bottom coordinately, and a yellow "shining" effect occurs once when placed. "ENTERTAINMENT" then spins in from below (through a 3D illusion). An iris effect occurs which forms white borders around the logo complete with the streak.

Technique: 2D animation.

Music/Sounds: Same as the first logo.

Availability: Rare. Might appear on both VHS and (later) VCD releases.

5th Logo (1997-2000)

Logo: Over a picture of a sunset with the shadow of a tree near the left, a set of 8 yellow stars, grouped together in a circle, is shown spinning. The letters of the EVS logo, along with the yellow "ENTERTAINMENT" text below, then zoom out in the front while spinning into view. The stars keep on spinning once the logo settles.

Technique: CGI.

Music/Sounds: Same as the first logo.

Availability: Rare. Might appear on both VHS and VCD releases.

6th Logo (1997)

Logo: On a red gradient background with rings, we see an earth globe as the EVS logo in aquamarine rotates about, with CGI blue birds flying around. The logo then shifts itself to the center as the CGI birds fly away from view.

Technique: CGI.

Music/Sounds: The music from the Sony Music Entertainment logo

Availability: Very rare.

7th Logo (1997-2000)

Logo: On a space background, we see a rotating globe as the EVS logo from before in gold rotates from behind the globe to the front (a la Universal). "ENTERTAINMENT" then slides in from the right to underneath the EVS logo.

Technique: CGI.

Music/Sounds: John Williams' recording of the 20th Century Fox fanfare (albeit different than the usual Star Wars fanfares) with the drumroll cut.

Availability: Very rare, since it was (allegedly) used for a brief period.

8th Logo (2000-2002)

Logo: We slowly zoom out from stars in space as a large wireframe globe (which is overlaid with live-action clips) zooms out and rotates 180 degrees. The company name in gold then zooms out and places itself over the globe.

Technique: CGI.

Music/Sounds: Same as the 7th logo.

Availability: Scarce.

9th Logo (2000-2002)

Logo: In a city, we see three helicopters carrying the letters "E" (in blue), "V" (in green) and "S" (in orange), respectively. The helicopters drop the letters on top of "ENTERTAINMENT" which is located on a tower. The helicopters fly away. Yellow musical notes fly behind the letters.

Technique: CGI.

Music/Sounds: The sound of helicopters. When the musical notes appear, the sound of breaking glass is heard.

Availability: Rare.

10th Logo (2000-2002)

Logo: On a fiery background, we see a golden capsule spinning, which dissolves, revealing the EVS logo from before.

Technique: CGI.

Music/Sounds: Fiery and explosive effects.

Availability: Very rare.

11th Logo (2002-2004)

Logo: On a black background, we see a glowing bubble which pops, revealing a smaller bubble with the EVS logo from before inside. The bubble zooms in, flashes, and turns crystalline.

Variant: Later releases have a reworked version of the logo with enhanced materials and clearer text.

Technique: CGI.

Music/Sounds: The sound of a bubble bursting in slow motion, with whooshing sounds.

Availability: Rare.

12th Logo (2003-2004)

Logo: We see the EVS logo from before on top of a gray pedestal surrounded by searchlights, rotating and panning. The logo then zooms out to a comfortable position.

Technique: CGI.

Music/Sounds: Computerized metallic sounds, segued by the 1990s SMV Enterprises jingle.

Availability: Very rare, perhaps since it was briefly used.

13th Logo (2004-2018)

Logo: We see a dark blue filmstrip panning, which glows white. Then, white rings and yellow streaks form a yellow ball of light, with a compact disc below it. The ball of light flashes, turning into a yellow ball with "EVS" in silver below, surrounded by a yellow curved line. "ENTERTAINMENT" in white wipes in below via light effects.

Technique: CGI.

Music/Sounds: A synth theme with laser and whooshing sounds.

Availability: Uncommon, since most recent EVS releases have this logo (also facilitated by its lengthy lifespan).
