SAN JUAN CAPISTRANO, Calif., June 19 /PRNewswire/ -- Ubiquity Broadcasting Corporation will make history again when day 2 of the 2010 Sponsor Me Ala Moana Bowls Contest resumes early next week. With sunny and clear conditions, and a big swell forecasted, Ubiquity is ready for another industry changing broadcast. Ubiquity Broadcasting Corporation's patented IP backhaul technology and methodology has forever changed the way the world will view live broadcasts and simulcasts over the internet, television, and mobile devices.
On June 15th day 1 of the 2010 Sponsor Me Ala Moana Bowls contest, Ubiquity made history by successfully broadcasting the contest live on Time Warner Oceanic Cable, on the internet at sponsorme.tv/bowls, on Apple's iPad and iPhone, and on other mobile devices by using the world's first IP backhaul technology . The contest was shot in Sony provided PM-EX3 HD cameras.
"Day 1 was a huge success for Ubiquity," said CEO Chris Carmichael. After 9 years of patenting the methodology and perfecting the necessary technology for an IP backhaul, Ubiquity has delivered the future of broadcasting technology. Chris added, "Day 2's broadcast will be even better as the swell is building. Big surf makes for better content." Day 2 is forecasted to have ideal broadcasting conditions with clear skies and big waves.
Day 2 of the Sponsor Me Ala Moana broadcast will feature big name pro surfers such as Makua Rothman, Sunny Garcia, Jamie O'Brien, Roy Powers, Pancho Sullivan, and two-time defending Bowls champ Flynn Novak among others.
Pro surfer and 6 time Triple Crown winner Sunny Garcia said, "With this field of elite surfers and the quality swell being forecasted, Day 2 should be epic. Everyone will be tuned in for sure."
XXL Champion Makua Rothman said, "I was watching Day 1's live broadcast from my iPhone right there on the beach. I was able to see the instant replays and live action at my fingertips. I can't wait for my time in the water"
Ubiquity's IP backhaul technology provides a direct stream to broadcasters and cuts down on the expensive infrastructure needed for traditional broadcasts. Ubiquity's technology also allows for further distribution on all three media screens (mobile, television, and internet) simultaneously, and gives ease of use to the end user. New distribution points create more eyeballs for broadcasters, which in turn bring more advertising dollars to their broadcasts. With Ubiquity's game changing technology viewers can now watch the same HD stream they are accustomed to at home in the palm of their hands. Ubiquity's VP Connie Jordan said, "Ubiquity's IP backhaul allows people all over the world to view live broadcasts anywhere anytime by landing on mobile media devices such as the iPhone and iPad." Chris added, "It is all about ease of use and accessibility to the end user. This is what the world of broadcasting has been waiting for." In a live interview on day 1 during the contest with CEO Chris Carmichael he showed the world's first IP backhaul streaming live on both the iPad and iPhone simultaneously with the Time Warner Oceanic Cable broadcast. Day 2 Ubiquity will do it again.
Ubiquity will bring the next generation of broadcasting and technology to life by broadcasting live events in HD simultaneously on all three screens (to the internet, television, and mobile devices) using their patented IP backhaul technology. Ubiquity's true litmus test in technology has been proven in the hardest arena to broadcast, action sports. The NFL, NBA, NHL, and other mainstream sports are next on Ubiquity's radar, as the need for a better way to broadcast simultaneously in HD is in high demand. Ubiquity's technology will forever change the way broadcasting is done in the future.

Ala Moana Bowls
Ala Moana has starred in over 30 surf videos including "Endless Summer" and "Tales of the Seven Seas" which includes a scene that perfectly characterizes the spot - massive tubes, boards flying, ruthless drop-ins, and the climactic conclusion of a catamaran being capsized by a cleanup set. One of the best places to surf in Hawaii, Ala Moana Bowls is a popular spot on Oahu. It's an exposed reef break with consistent surf. This left-hand reef break is the symbol of great South Shore waves. Packed and very competitive, it's virtually reserved for locals who know how to surf inside the bowl. Ala Moana is a long wave with a few different tube sections and a range of takeoff spots. The bowl is just that-an inside-out section halfway in that forms between the Ala Moana boating channel and the Pacific Ocean. It holds waves of 4 to 12 feet. The takeoff is steep and fast; getting caught behind is risky. It's most ideal when a south swell detonates on the initial bowl section. The water next to the reef has been dredged for the harbor so the swells are unique. Ala Moana Bowls is at its best in summertime due to the south swells that provide the surfing community a much needed opportunity to win valuable WQS points at home breaks. These points will count towards qualification for the 2010 Vans Triple Crown of Surfing and the 2010 elite World Championship Tour.
