ORANGE COUNTY, Calif., Dec. 24, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- Ubiquity Broadcasting Corporation continues to push the envelope in broadcasting technology. Ubiquity 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 Corporation made history in June of 2010 when they live broadcasted Hawaii's first surfing contest using an IP Backhaul. Ubiquity provided broadcasters with a direct IP stream eliminating the need for expensive satellite trucks, production equipment, and costly fixed fiber drops. By using an IP backhaul broadcasters were afforded the flexibility and mobility needed to deliver a cost effective HD broadcast.

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 once again excited to be part of such a ground-breaking innovation in live broadcasting. By using an IP Backhaul it gives viewers more media choices to view the live event, reaching a far greater audience then traditional broadcasts.

CEO of Ubiquity Broadcasting Corporation Chris Carmichael said, "Ubiquity will make history again with the award winning production of the 2011 Sponsor Me Sunset Open."

Emmy Award winner Steve Jacobs of Ubiquity said, "Ubiquity continues to be at the forefront of broadcasting technology."
