Musi-Video was a music video series which ran in Canada between 1980 and 1984, syndicated to community channels across Canada. It was a very early example of the format that later would be adopted by the creation of MTV and MuchMusic.

It was the creation of Marc Fontaine, who was also behind the new wave pop group Nudimension. Produced in Montreal, it featured early 1980s music artists playing live in a studio and early music videos.[1]

In 2008 the Musi-Video brand was revived as a Music publishing label by Marc Fontaine.
