1st logo (1980s)

While this is a still logo, the still logo zooms in throughout.
Technique: The logo zooming in.
Music/Sounds: An electronic jingle with electronic sounds, then a descending synth chord is heard.
Availability: Seen on early releases of Meridian VHS tapes
2nd logo (1990s)
Logo: On a space background, we see a globe, which is Earth, spinning throughout, which pans out to the left side of the screen. After the globe is at the left side of the screen, the globe turns from Earth to a blue/purple globe, with longitude and latitude lines. "meridian" sweeps up from the bottom of the screen to next to the globe, then "education corporation" moves from the right, the letters upward, then unfolded as it goes under "meridian". It ends up in this result:
Then the name "shines" left to right (think the Touchstone logo).
Technique: All the animation in the logo.
Music/Sounds: An uplifting synth tune.
Availability: Seen on Meridian releases of the period.
