HONOLULU, Jan. 21 , 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Ubiquity Broadcasting Corporation is once again making headlines, this time for its unparalleled HD broadcast of the 2011 Sunset Open Surfing Championship, Live from the North Shore of Oahu, Hawaii, and for the world debut of its Waterproof Video Broadcasting System.
Using Ubiquity Broadcasting's patented IP Backhaul technology, the Sunset Open was broadcasted live from the Beach and the water in HD to Time Warner Oceanic cable, to the internet at sponsorme.com, and to mobile media devices. The event was shot in HD and produced unlike any other Live Surfing event ever filmed. Ubiquity Broadcasting delivered to viewers a high quality, television production with broadcast elements usually reserved for bigger nationally televised events. Sunset Open viewers were treated to a production that included integrated Broadcast Graphics, Pre-recorded Athlete Packages featuring interviews with the Contestants, and Live Interviews from the Competitors both on the Beach and for the first time ever, in the Water between waves. This ground breaking Athlete access was made possible through the use of Ubiquity's Waterproof Video Broadcasting System. Developed by Ubiquity and Ubiquity's Director of Cinematography Mike Prickett, this added dimension to Ubiquity's IP Backhaul Technology was used to bring Viewers closer to the action than ever before possible by bringing live in-water audio commentary from competitors, caddies and water patrol.
What made this broadcast even more unique was the high quality, feature rich television production that was delivered as a live stream in HD to the Internet and to a wide variety of mobile media devices including Apple's iPhone and iPad. Viewers from around the world were able to watch this event Live in HD on the media device of their choosing; Televisions, Computers, Tablets or Mobile Phones.
Legendary Pro-Surfer and 2011 Sunset Open Contestant Sunny Garcia said, "Watching the live Broadcast from my iPhone was like watching it on my big screen at home."
