As the medallion settles and zooms out, the text "AMBROSE VIDEO" zoom in one-by-one below the emblem. The torch then fills with a red-yellow gradient for the flame bit.
  • 2006?-: On a black background, the torch is seen inside of the oval, which is now digitally recreated and has shine and shadow effects, with fire stock footage coming out of the flame. As it fades in, the book and "A" on the book come in from both sides of the oval, flipping multiple times as they move about.
