Background

Vision Home Entertainment (also known as Vision Interprima Pictures) was one of the largest international home video distributors in Southeast Asia, founded in 1994. In 1995, Vision gained the license and became the official home video distributor of Warner Home Video (until 2012) and Buena Vista Home Entertainment (now Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment) (until 2017). In 2007, Vision gained the home video distribution rights to Universal Pictures Home Entertainment library, as well as 20th Century Home Entertainment later in 2016. Vision also distributed a handful of Nickelodeon library alongside their own subsidiary Horizon Entertainment and Kidscreen Entertainment; the latter which was an Inova Digimedia company. On September 1st, 2016, the company merged with music distributor company PT. E-Motion Entertainment. Vision didn't use any logo until 1998 on Warner Home Video releases. In mid-2018, Vision, as well as all of its subsidiaries and mergers, filed for bankruptcy and shut down, their very last release being Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom from Universal Pictures. Their official online store was closed in 2020, while their final remaining offline store was closed in 2021.

Logo (October 24, 1998-July 7, 2017)

Visuals: There is a mountain island. The camera moves to the north while a light (more like a lens flare) moves around. After some seconds, the Vision Home Entertainment logo (without the "HOME ENTERTAINMENT" text and I dots) zooms out. The tiny scribbles above the I's appear (one orange, one green), and when the mountains below are out of sight the "HOME ENTERTAINMENT" text fades in. The red words "Quality Entertainment for Your Home" fade in below the logo. The background turns black and the red text glows.

Variant: On releases from PT. Vicidi Prima Indonesia (a merger between this and Cinekom), the logo is shortened (starts with the dings), preceded by a yellow text saying the latter company's name, over a black background.

Technique: CGI.

Audio: A synth drone accompanied by jet-like sounds, followed by two dings when the dots appear.

Availability: Can be found in almost every Indonesian VCDs and Simple DVDs of Warner Bros. titles from 1998 to 2012, MGM (distribution through Warner Home Video) from 1998 to 1999 and Universal from 2007 to 2017.

  • This is also seen on a few titles from Icon Entertainment International and The Kushner-Locke Company, such as 187, Anna Karenina (1997), and The Grave (1996).
  • Most of the Digimon titles from 1999 to 2004 released by the company also have this logo, and it's also seen on TV shows by Nelvana, such as The Backyardigans and Babar.
  • Titles from Mattel have this as well, notably the Hot Wheels TV shows and movies and the Barbie movies from 2007 onwards.
  • It is usually absent on Buena Vista/Walt Disney releases, however it appeared on the 1998 VCD release of Another Stakeout, as well as the 1999 VCD releases of The Parent Trap (1998), Toothless, My Favorite Martian, and 10 Things I Hate About You.
  • The newest Fox/MGM releases from 2016 don't have the logo at all since the DVDs were all imported from other third region Asian countries while Vision didn't produce any VCDs of the respective companies' titles.
  • The shortened version with the Cinekom logo following can be found on releases by Vicidi Prima such as Get Carter (the 2000 remake) as well as few older BBC titles like Blackadder.

Logo (October 17, 2012)

Visuals: A light shines in the middle of the screen, revealing a blue sky with clouds. There is the bottom part of the Vision logo followed by the upper part including the dots, they merged as the logo rotates. A flashbang occurs, which turns the logo into its print form. The logo shines horizontally, the words "HOME ENTERTAINMENT" in yellow emerged below via ray effect. The background slowly fades to black and the words "QUALITY ENTERTAINMENT FOR YOUR HOME" in white, emerged below the logo, same effect as the previous text.

Technique: CGI.

Audio: Starts with sparkling sounds, followed by synthesized keyboard tune accompanied by a jet-like sound somewhat resembles the one from the official logo, and a smooth boom as the flashbang occurred. Ends with the same sparkling sounds. Composed by Johannes Paulus.

Availability: Originally, this was supposed to be on their local-manufactured DVD releases (known as Simple DVD), but the company ended up using the previous logo, so this ended up unused. The only way to see this logo is on YouTube.
