Cannon Video

From Home Video

History[edit]

The Cannon Video label was used as early as 1986 when Thorn EMI's international home video operations, along with its film assets were sold off to Cannon Films, who used alternating monikers like Cannon Screen Entertainment and Cannon Video.

In the U.S. and Canada, Cannon's releases were generally distributed by either International Video Entertainment, Vestron Video, Paragon Video Productions, Media Home Entertainment, MGM/UA Home Video, Warner Home Video, or MCA Videocassette, Inc. That changed in June 1988, when Cannon launched an actual home video label, called Cannon Video. Two months later, Cannon secured a marketing and distribution deal with Warner Home Video, and former Lorimar Home Video executive Evan Fisher became the director for the Cannon Video label.

In the mid-1990s, Cannon ceased operations, and shut down the home video label.
