Kompas TV

From the Audiovisual Identity Database, the motion graphics museum


Kompas TV is a private-owned national television station in Indonesia that focuses on news content, established in 2011 by Jakob Oetama. Kompas TV is owned by KG Media, which used to be Kompas Gramedia Group. The TV station replaces TV7, the once-owned by the company, as it was bought by Trans Corp, which was established under Chairul Tanjung's leadership in 2006, thus the name TV7 was changed to Trans7, Kompas Gramedia's shares in Trans7 have decreased to almost half of Trans Corp.

Visuals: TBD


  • Starting in 2014, the word "TV" in red is added at the right of the logo.
  • Sometimes the logo would have a different first background before fading in to the white CGI background instead of black.
  • Another variant with a white "K" and various colored background exists.

Technique: CGI.ackground, and the text slidings.
