1st Logo (Early-Mid 1980s)

Visuals: On a black background, the futuristic text "DELTΔ" is seen in the middle of the screen, with "HOME VIDEO" below in a ITC Busorama font. Inside of the logo, a converging diamond pattern animates endlessly, changing colors as it does.

Technique: Scanimation.

Audio: "Star Games" by George Fenton and Kenneth Freeman, a synthesized disco tune off of KPM's Handplayed by Robots production music album.

Availability: Seen on old PAL tapes from Australia and New Zealand. [Examples?]

2nd Logo (Mid 1980s)

Visuals: On a black background, a fine spread of dust is seen all across the screen. Suddenly, the dust starts to fly all across the screen, slowly closing in on itself as it does, and then tightly packs together into the same "DELTΔ" text from before, but in a rainbow gradient. A 4-pointed star zooms in and spins while moving to the left, revealing black spaces in-between the letters, and then zooms out once it stops moving.

Technique: 2D computer animation.

Audio: An ascending synthesizer theme, with two synthesized whooshes, ending in a synth hit.

Availability: Seen on the Australian VHS release of Marbella, as well as other Delta Home Video titles.

3rd Logo (Mid 1980s)

Visuals: On a black background, a screen consisting of a curled-up film strip seen at an angle, with blank orange gradient frames in it and a white outline, slides in to the right as it unwraps itself. The sprocket holes start to shine throughout, as odd squares flashing red and white fly in from the left, forming a large "D" with an orange hole via a pixelized reveal effect, which rests inside of the large curve in the film strip and seemingly forming a "VD". "VIDEO DELTA" then fades in below, with "VIDEO" being in a much smaller size at the top left of the text. The text sparkles as the sprocket holes continue to shine.

Variant: A still version exists using the print logo, which is mostly the same except "DELTA" is in yellow, and the upper half of the background is covered in a pattern of diagonally-placed "DELTA"'s in grey.

Technique: Standard computer effects.

Audio: A six-note synth guitar tune accompanied by a rapid series of electronic sounds as the squares form the D.

Availability: Seen on later tapes by the company, such as The Oracle.
