Echo Bridge Entertainment (formerly Platinum Disc Corporation) is an American independent distribution company, founded in 1995.
1st Logo (as Platinum Disc Corporation) (1999-Early 2000s)
Logo: On a blurry sky background, the letters in "PLATINUM", colored platinum, zoom in from below. Then, a bright flash brings forth a pink/white gradient oval-like shape (meant to be a sillhouette of a disc) under the word as well as the words "disc corporation" in a gray Pepita font.
FX/SFX: The zoom in of the letters, and the flash.
Cheesy Factor: Very cheap computer animation
Music/Sounds: A 3-note synth-orchestra tune, similar to the beginning of the Strand VCI logo.
Availability: Can be found on a DVD release of Hangmen. Also found on some public domain DVD releases of old TV shows from the 50's and 60's.
Scare Factor: Minimal.
2nd Logo (Early 2000s-2006)
Logo: We see rotating DVD, when suddenly a blue light source appears behind. The disc rotates to front view and zooms in to show the name written on the surface. The disc then fades out.
Variant: On some DVDs, only the word "disc" is shown below the logo.
FX/SFX: The disc rotating. Decent animation.
Music/Sounds: A light synth-piano theme with a film projector noise, followed by a 7-note oboe tune and people chattering.
Availability: Found on DVDs from this company. Is actually somewhat easier to find than the first logo.
Scare Factor: None.
3rd Logo (as Echo Bridge Home Entertainment) (2000s- )
Logo: On a blue sky background with birds flying, there is a creek between land with green grass and fall trees. The camera eases back to reveal a light brown brick bridge with black rails. It eases back again to reveal it is in a box on a black background with "ECHO BRIDGE" on top and "HOME ENTERTAINMENT" on bottom. The words shimmer. It then eases back and disappears and the words:
THE ENTERTAINMENT ALTERNATIVE FOR WHAT THE WORLD WANTS TO SEE
appear and ease back a bit. The lines appear one by one.
Variant: At the end of programs, the company name doesn't shimmer and the lines appear all at once rather then one at a time. Sometimes, the company name merely reads "ECHO BRIDGE ENTERTAINMENT" and the ending notice does not appear. On some episodes of Degrassi: The Next Generation, the "ENTERTAINMENT" variant is cut to its last seconds.
FX/SFX/Cheesy Factor: Very cheap computer animation. The creek looks like mud.
Music/Sounds: Birds chirping and a short piano tune with a small whoosh at the end.
Availability: Seen on DVD releases by the company, which are very common in bargain bins at grocery stores and Wal-Mart.
Scare Factor: Minimal. A few might get nervous of the whooshes but some may put off by the cheap animation.
