WarnerMedia Innovation Lab Boasts NYC Space with 5G Capability
The WarnerMedia Innovation Lab announced its physical space in New York City will be powered by AT&T’s 5G network, making it one of AT&T’s first permanent 5G experience centers. The Lab also announced further details on its partnerships with WarnerMedia Ad Sales and with Xandr, AT&T’s advanced advertising and analytics company.
The Lab will be a new construction 20,000 square foot facility located in the Chelsea neighborhood of Manhattan, featuring an immersive zone for showcasing consumer-ready experiences visible to the public, flexible indoor and outdoor event spaces, dedicated R&D environments and an open and collaborative modern work space.
“The Lab is more than a technology incubator, but also a dream factory for us to create the wonderment that fans have come to love and expect from WarnerMedia,” said Jesse Redniss, GM, WarnerMedia Innovation Lab. “Here we’ll flex the best of WarnerMedia’s creative storytelling capabilities combined with cutting edge technology from AT&T and our partners to deliver experiences that will be talked about for a lifetime.”
The Lab, slated to open in early 2020, will bring 5G experiences to life through exploration and development initiatives, enabling a real-time virtualized collaboration ecosystem across WarnerMedia and the AT&T offerings. “By working across AT&T, we’re able to combine the latest in 5G technology with immersive content experiences and cutting-edge advertising capabilities,” said David Christopher, president of AT&T Mobility and Entertainment. “The WarnerMedia Innovation Lab will be a space where developers, creators and visitors will be inspired to push the boundaries of entertainment, all powered by the company that first introduced the U.S. to the power of mobile 5G.”
