Emerald, S.A. was founded on May 24, 1991, editing low budget B-movies, which was a close cousin of Teleargentina S.A., which was founded by Hugo Antonio Tucci, and made up to 1 to 2 members. The company later founded labels like Erotika, Capital Hot Video and Eritoka. In the late 1990s, it was bought out by ECESA, and it also managed the Video Cine Independiente, which was later called as Emerald-VCI, before being reverted back to Emerald.


Logo: On a black space background with many stars, we see a cubic, cracked and light grey block of stone float up from the bottom to cover the screen. Then, four sparkling, green right triangular prisms zoom out while tumbling, this being followed by four more right triangular prisms and a right rectangular prism. These shapes then assemble themselves to form an emerald cut, and the text "Emerald", in green, is written out in a cursive-like font, with an underline dash being drawn underneath it afterwards. Small text reading "VIDEO HOME", also in green, fades in underneath the logo.

Technique: All done in 3D computer-generated animation.

Music/Sounds: A light, almost dreamy tune. After the music stops playing, there is a male announcer who says "Emerald Video Home! Presenta...".

Availability: Seen on at least three VHS tapes, which were Argentine VHS releases of Fire on the Amazon (1993), Xtro 3: Watch the Skies (1995) and DNA (1996).
