Lexington Kentucky based Volar Video is selling its streaming software and platform that handled over 13,000 live streams and over 2 million viewers over the past six months. The company has asked me to make it public that they are now considering all strategic alternatives, including an asset sale, acqui-hire, or selling a majority stake. You can download an overview of Volar’s platform and technology to get more details on what they have to offer.
Volar’s major clients are primarily in the live sports vertical and include the Mountain West Conference and many other NCAA Division I, II, and III colleges and universities. Volar has also recently worked with Root Sports, Fox Sports Midwest, Time Warner Oceania, as well as Silver Chalice and Encompass Media. Volar was one of the first to figure out stream stitching when they demoed their mid-roll ad solution to me years ago. Volar’s platform functionality includes:
- a cloud-base live streaming and VOD platform
- VAST compliant mid-roll ad insertion that works on desktop, mobile SDKs and iOS mobile web
- advanced multi-party ad inventory management functionality
- streaming software for Mac and PC
- real time analytics, SDKs and APIs
Volar has ten engineers that have worked together for two years building the software and platform. Anyone interested in talking to the company can email me and I’ll be happy to make an introduction.
