Pulse (stylized as P•U•L•S•E) is a Pink Floyd concert video taken from the October 20, 1994 concert at Earls Court Exhibition Centre, London, in The Division Bell tour, originally released on VHS and Laserdisc in 1995, which is currently available on DVD.

There was considerable delay in the release of the DVD edition of Pulse, with new features announced with each setback. The cause of the delays was reputed to be the continued modifications and additions in order to produce a high-quality release. The previous planned release date of 22 September 2005 for the two-disc DVD set was changed to 10 July 2006 for the UK and Europe, and 11 July 2006 everywhere else.

In the actual concert, "Another Brick in the Wall (Part 2)" and "One of These Days" both immediately preceded the Dark Side of the Moon set; on the laserdisc, they were moved to immediately after, for space/continuity issues. They were returned to their original order on the DVD release.

DVD Editing

The DVD release saw some re-edited footage of the original 1995 release. During The Division Bell tour the word(s) "Enigma" or "Publius Enigma" would be visible on part of the stage (sometimes it would be written in lights, or on the back screen). These were connected to the Enigma competition surrounding the album and tour. On 20 October 1994, during "Another Brick in the Wall (Part 2)" the screen displayed the word "Enigma" instead of "E=MC2" which is what was shown at other shows, this is shown on the original 1995 release. The DVD, however, has an altered back-drop displaying "E=MC2", although if the DVD is paused at the correct moment the word "Enigma" is still visible.
