Parent co assumes moniker.

Home video supplier Platinum Disc is changing its name to Echo Bridge Home Entertainment, the name of its parent company.

Platinum and Echo Bridge -- which also acquires and distributes projects for the film, TV, cable and satellite markets -- merged this past spring.

Additionally, the company has named Dan Gant head of sales for the company. Gant, who previously worked as senior VP of sales for Universal Studios Home Entertainment, will report to Echo Bridge president Tim Clott in La Crosse, Wis.
