1st Logo
(1983-1997)
1992
Logo: On a light blue BG, a blue wavy line is drawn, representing the sea. Another (but shorter) is drawn under that. Then an outlined sailboat is drawn on the top of it, and then another (but in wrong way) is drawn on the right of that. A circle, representing the sun, is also drawn at behind the sail tip of the 1st boat, and then the whole thing colors by itself. Then it zooms out,revealing that it is in a box on a white BG. SAIL VIDEO appears at the bottom of the box. "A BREIL ENTERTAINMENT GROUP COMPANY", in a techno-like stylized font, appears below SAIL VIDEO, as a byline.

Variants:
  • Sometimes the logo is in B&W.
  • "SAIL" has appeared in green, "VIDEO" in yellow and the byline in orange at least once (it was on a Jamaican tourist tape).
  • The Chace Surround Sound logo may appear at the bottom right corner of the screen.

FX: The drawing, the zooming, SAIL VIDEO and the byline appearing.

Music/Sounds: A shore sound, like the Toei logo, otherwise it is silent. Starting in 1995,a remix of the MCA-Universal Home Video 1991-1997 logo theme is heard.

Logo: A CGI version of last logo. It starts out with a CGI rendering of under the sea, then we pan up to the water surface,then we zoom out,revealing flat CGI sailboats from last logo, also it had a CGI sunset background (with no clouds) behind the sailboats and the sea. We zoom out like the last logo, SAIL VIDEO and the byline appear as usual,only in a more corporate font,and in addition, "A BREIL ENTERTAINMENT GROUP COMPANY" is shortened to "A BREIL ENT. GROUP COMPANY", also the text is also in CGI
