Burbank Video

From the Audiovisual Identity Database, the motion graphics museum


Burbank Video was an American home video distributor based in Batavia, Ohio. The company was founded in 1988 by Viking Entertainment as a merger from several companies in the Burbank, CA area (which is how they got their name), including Troy Gold. The company's library consisted mostly of public domain films. In Canada, their releases were distributed by HGV Video Productions. In 1994, the company was bought out by Video Treasures, which also owned HGV Video. Burbank Video was phased out shortly after.
