Mission Statement

A center of insight that incorporates cutting-edge technologies and research techniques providing an unmatched ability to test consumer engagement across technology and distribution platforms.

History

Opened in 2012, the Medialab underscores Time Warner’s commitment to innovation. An industry-leading media and entertainment company with businesses in television networks, filmed entertainment, and publishing, Time Warner uses its operating scale and popular brands to create, package, and deliver high-quality content worldwide across a wide spectrum of platforms. In order to foster the company’s continued growth as a progressive supplier of engaging content, Time Warner and its core divisions--HBO, Turner, and Warner Bros.--consider the Medialab an essential instrument in understanding consumer behavior, evolving media habits, and industry trends.

This 9600-square-foot on-site facility in New York City will provide insight into how consumers engage with content and enable “hands-on” testing with the latest in devices and distribution platforms. We built the Medialab to help us continue to create best-in-class content for every consumer experience.
