Canal 7 (second era)

This logo was a "7" formed by mirror-like lines, above and in 3D, the word "channel" and in the lower right, the phrase "LS 82 TV, Buenos Aires, Argentina".
ATC (Argentina Televisora Color) (first era)
On May 3, 1979, the channel was renamed Argentina Televisora Color, also known by its acronym "ATC", one of its many best known and remembered names.
The logo was the letters "ATC" joined with a circle inside the "C", which resembles an eye, divided into dark green, dark purple, light purple, red, orange and yellow lines.
In 1985, the logo was changed to have a more futuristic appearance. The outline and appearance of the letters are now round and the color of the dark green line is bluish green, the purple line becomes light blue, and the light purple line becomes normal purple.
In this logo, the design of 1979 is resumed, but now it has diagonal cuts in the letters and the colored lines are now also diagonal and the bars are now semi-dark yellow, semi-light orange, dark red, fuchsia, dark blue, light green and teal.
In February 1996, the channel changed its name and logo to ATeCE (stylized phonetic reading letter-by-letter of ATC), with the colors of the flag of Argentina. This short-lived logo was designed by Orestes LuceroClarín.

In March 2002, the logo was modified to a light blue screen-shaped border with six blue, orange, yellow, red, green and purple screens, and below, the name "canal siete" in black colors and yellow, with the last word in bold. This logo was also used in tandem with the next logo that was introduced later in 2002, until September 2003, when the channel restructuring was completed.
From late 2002 to the middle of 2003, the channel used this logo for many of its idents (the others, the previous logo). In September 2003, the channel dropped the previous logo, so this logo became the channel's main logo until 2007. This logo consists of a blue crystal-textured screen with a "7" of blue gradient color, and below, the name "canalsiete, Argentina".
In October 2007, the channel changed its name to TV Pública and the logo was a "7" in red 3D with a pair of antenna waves on the sides and below, the name "tv.pública" in Helvetica typography, the last Bold word.

The name of the channel becomes a Fontana SC typeface with rounded edges and a semi-dark gray color and below, the name "CANALSIETE" in light gray color and in Futura Bold typography.
In full transition to HD transmissions, the cockade now looks 3D.
With the start of HD broadcasts, the channel will have a modified 3D appearance, the name of the channel is now in 3D and below, a black rectangle with a metallic border with the letters "DIGITAL" in yellow-orange and typography in the form of a clock.
