With hubs in Japan, Shenzhen and Silicon Valley, Media Innovation Lab will integrate the strengths of both companies to explore new possibilities in the media industry that will create next-generation media and digital businesses.


Developments in telecommunications infrastructure and other technologies are creating new forms of media and a more diverse range of business models, leading to the emergence of new players at unprecedented speeds.
