In 2011, the company was dissolved due to bankruptcy.
1st Logo (Early-Mid 1990's)
Logo: All we see is the Videovan logo in white against a blue background.
Availability: Ultra rare. Was only known to appear on a VHS release of The Little Mermaid, among other VHS releases.
2nd Logo (1997?-2011)
Logo: On a space background, the camera zooms in quickly in front of a rocky planet. This passes as it zooms into another planet. A small moon drops south out of frame, as the rocky planet suddenly stops spinning and rotates the reverse direction. Next, the company name, "VIDEOVAN", letter by letter, places themselves on the screen in front of the rock planet. A planet resembling Jupiter or the Moon (because of the craters) flies up in the background, and immediately when it gets out of frame two red triangles top off both V(s) in the name. The rock planet stops, and the completed logo is a still image that sticks for a few seconds more without fading.
- Some releases had the logo end in a frame-change.
- In around late 2000, a byline was added to the logo. After the forming of the logo, the planets zoom out quickly in favor of the byline "Entertainment Industries Pte Ltd". The logo shines then.
Technique: Primitive CGI animation.
Music/Sounds: A loud warbling UFO-esque synth, followed by a strange synth.
Availability: Pretty common. Can be seen on VHS tapes, DVDs, and VCDs distributed by VideoVan in Southeast Asia, such as their VCD release of Titanic and the Discovery Channel series Once Upon a Tree.
3rd Logo (Indonesian division) (2001)
