Time Warner Global Media Group Selects Ball State University To Conduct A Research Study In Its State-of-the-Art Medialab

Time Warner Inc.’s Global Media Group today announced that Ball State University has been selected as the winner of its call for proposals to conduct a cutting-edge research study in its Medialab located in New York City. The Time Warner Global Media Group will underwrite the cost of the study for Ball State University, which was chosen from over 30 academic proposals. The University’s second screen study takes advantage of the Time Warner Medialab’s innovative research methods to reveal how viewers interact with television programs and advertisements through social TV as well as the effect that second screen has on linear viewing.

“In the year since the Medialab opened, we’ve completed more than 70 studies that have provided us with deep insight into the mind of the consumer,” said Kristen O’Hara, SVP and Chief Marketing Officer, Time Warner Global Media Group. “We wanted to partner with a university to tap into the intellectually curious minds of academia. The second screen study Ball State proposed will effectively use the Medialab to provide new insights on one of the biggest trends in content consumption.”

Ball State’s research team plans to use the Time Warner Medialab’s eye-tracking devices, focus groups and online surveys with panel members to examine television engagement in the contemporary social viewing environment. Participants will watch television while using smartphones and tablets while researchers analyze how viewers interact with programs and ads through social engagement.

“The Time Warner Medialab gives us the opportunity to do a very natural study now that people are more accustomed to social media and have more sophisticated mobile devices,” said Michael Holmes, a Ball State faculty member who has been instrumental in the University’s research on media consumption. “The lab’s state-of-the-art equipment allows us to build on prior second screen studies we’ve done at Ball State University, but with more in-depth analysis on qualitative research.”
