Astra Video

From the Audiovisual Identity Database, the motion graphics museum


Astra Video was a short-lived controversial pre-cert label.

Logo (January 1982-August 1983)

Visuals: On a black background, a stacked "AV" appears in a retro futuristic font, made of glowing orange lines. A still ping is also seen on the bottom of the "V". About halfway into the logo, the text "MOVIE MAGIC FROM ASTRA" wipes in below.

Variant: Sometimes, the logo's symbol may be a little too different, and the text may be small.

Technique: Chyron effects.

Audio: A UFO-like violin note, extended to play throughout the entire logo. None for the variant.
