splash screen

An introductory screen displayed by an application after it is loaded and just before it starts. It generally shows the software company's name, logo, copyright and other related information. Either it goes away by itself, or it requires the user to press escape or click the close button. Fancy splash screens may provide an animated graphic to entertain you for a few seconds. See dialog box and window.
