DECEMBER 27, 2010 -- Ubiquity Broadcasting Corp. will broadcast the 2011 Sponsor Me Sunset Open live in HD using its patented IP Backhaul technology to the Internet at www.sponsorme.com, on television through Time Warner Oceanic Cable, and on mobile media devices, such as Apple's iPhone and iPad.
Ubiquity Broadcasting broadcasted Hawaii's first surfing contest in June 2010 using an IP Backhaul, providing broadcasters with a direct IP stream while eliminating the need for satellite trucks, production equipment, and fixed fiber drops.
Ubiquity's IP Backhaul technology gives broadcasters the ability to broadcast live events over the Internet, television, and mobile media devices from hard-to-reach places. Time Warner Oceanic Cable is involved in this live broadcasting event, as well. “By using an IP Backhaul, it gives viewers more media choices to view the live event, reaching a far greater audience then traditional broadcasts,” says a representative.
Ubiquity's broadcasting team will employ Ubiquity's latest compression and IP backhaul technology to deliver a Webcast and simulcast experience said to be “unmatched by any in action sports.” Using Sony HD and 3D Cameras, Ubiquity will broadcast the 2011 Sponsor Me Sunset Open live, on the Internet, mobile media devices, and to Time Warner Oceanic Cable.
The 2011 Sponsor Me Sunset Open is set for January 14 through 23, 2011. Ubiquity Broadcasting Corp., Sony, and Time-Warner Oceanic Cable are in their final preparations for the 2011 Sunset Open contest and the second debut of an IP backhaul HD broadcast in Hawaii.
