Founders Rob Barnett and Warren Chao use corporate gobbledygook to explain the more traditionally corporate name, saying that it’s a “relaunch” for the digital video producer that reflects the entity’s evolution into “a multi-platform, 360° entertainment company.” Barnett will remain Founder/CEO, but Chao has been elevated to Co-Founder/President of Omnivision from Co-Founder and COO. In addition to the new moniker, the execs said today that they’ve signed Finnish entertainer Sara Maria Forsberg — who developed a popular video “What Languages Sound Like To Foreigners” — and will look for advertising, online, film, TV, theatrical, print and other opportunities. My Damn Channel — sorry, Omnivision — recently agreed to produce a viral video countdown show for HLN (which is also rebranding), and says it “will continue to produce and distribute premium content for screens of all sizes,” including MyDamnChannel.com and the My Damn Channel Comedy Network.
