Musicvision was the short-lived music video division of RCA/Columbia Pictures Home Video (now "Sony Pictures Home Entertainment").


Logo: On a background filled with dark and light gray stripes, a red bar wipes in across the screen. Then, the text "MUSICVISION" with "MUSIC" in Times New Roman Bold and "VISION" in Impact wipes in inside the bar. Streaks of light shine across the dark gray stripes and the "MUSICVISION" text wipes from gray to white.

Technique: The red bar wiping in, the "MUSICVISION" text wiping in, the light streaks running across the dark gray bars, and the "MUSICVISION" wiping from gray to white.

Music/Sounds: An 80's guitar and synth-driven pop rock instrumental.

Availability: Seen on many out-of-print videos that carry the Musicvision packaging and logo such as Rick Springfield: The Beat of the Live Drum, We Are the World: The Video Event, Robert Palmer: Riptide, and Tears for Fears: Songs from the Big Chair.
