PrestoSports Names Volar Video Preferred PrimeTime Partner for Live Video Streaming

Free video streaming software available to all NCAA, NAIA, and NJCAA institutions

ROCKVILLE, Maryland and LEXINGTON, Kentucky - PrestoSports is proud to announce that Volar Video has been selected as a Preferred PrimeTime Partner for live video streaming. Teams from all levels of competition will be able to use Volar’s innovative video streaming software, Production Truck®, within PrestoSports’ PrimeTime viewer to create an unmatched in-game experience for fans.

Volar, a leading digital video technology and media company, provides collegiate conferences and institutions the cutting-edge technology to broadcast high-quality events complete with multi-camera switching, customizable graphic overlays, instant replay, social media clip sharing, dynamic mid-roll ad insertion, and more, all from a laptop. Volar clients include the Mountain West Conference, Sun Belt Conference, Southland Conference, West Coast Conference, National Junior College Athletic Association, TEAM 1 SPORTS, and many other collegiate and amateur sports organizations.

Through this partnership, Volar is providing its Production Truck® Standard Definition Plus (SD+) streaming software solution free of charge to all PrestoSports clients, enabling users to stream unlimited events up to 1.2 Mbps. Archived broadcasts can be viewed free of charge in an institution’s video portal and will work across all devices - from TVs to laptops to tablets to smartphones. Additionally, and in an effort to introduce Presto clients to new audiences, all broadcasts will be automatically syndicated to Volar’s newest amateur sports digital network, TEAM 1 SPORTS, which launched July 15 in partnership with Sporting News Media.

“We are excited to provide our Production Truck® streaming software free of charge to all of PrestoSports’ clients,” said David Bertram, CEO, Volar Video. “By integrating our video streaming technology into PrestoSports’ PrimeTime environment, fans will be blown away by the first-class viewing experience they receive. Collegiate organizations now have the tools available to generate new exposure for their institution and connect with new audiences like never before.”
