A digital on-screen graphics is a watermark-like station logo that most channels use it, overlaying it on a portion of an area, to identify the channel. This page describes the usage in the United El Kadsreian Nations.
El Kadsre has used a digital on-screen graphics since 1985. In 1985, RGN began showing a bug on the bottom right corner of the screen during the 1985 episode of the American soap-opera television show, Days of Our Lives. On July 2, 1989 at 4:00 pm, El TV Kadsre 1 started showing a bug on the bottom-right corner of the screen (this top corner tradition has begun exactly at this moment) during a 3:45 pm newscast. This trend was soon expanded to El TV Kadsre 2. The on-screen bugs were displayed during the whole day, but since 1995 they began disappearing on commercial breaks and the sign off period. In 1998, TTV launched, displaying a logo on the top left corner of the screen.
Channels don't usually include animations before and after the commercial breaks (the most notable example is CPN One, which used a folding (before the break) and unfolding (after break) logo transition from June 2, 2003 to March 23, 2012). Nowadays, TTV uses an illusion logo removal in commercial idents where the camera moves indirectly to the cube, which was later investigated as sudden removal of the logo during the first moments of the idents, with the video bug being identical to the on-screen bug itself.
The following table shows channels showing logos in these distinct corners (this doesn't include cable channels broadcasting in more than one country, those who don't have localized commercials):
|Top left corner||Top right corner||Bottom left corner||Bottom right corner|
|Star, SFTV, TV6||CPN One, CPN Two, The Big Channel, Animax||None||All El TV Kadsre-owned channels, RGN, RTV, Viva, Channel Two, TTV, BTV, BTV Me|
