COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo.  — The National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA), through its multimedia rights entity NJCAA Sports Properties, is proud to announce its upcoming broadcast schedule of select fall championship events on its digital video network NJCAA TV (www.njcaatv.com) as well as further enhancements stemming from its recent partnership with Volar Video.

Launched in the fall of 2009, NJCAA TV is the home for live video coverage of NJCAA Championships. After spending the previous two years on the iHigh.com system, NJCAA TV was upgraded in August 2013 to Volar Video’s new proprietary software and robust streaming platform.

The upgrade to the Volar Video system results in a better viewing experience for fans wanting to watch the best student-athletes in the NJCAA compete for the glory and prestige of a national championship. Enhancements that will be noticeable to viewers include improved video quality due to upgraded streaming software, multi-camera switching, custom graphic packages and multi-platform delivery to provide fans the option to watch broadcasts on desktops, tablets, mobile devices and smart TV’s.

“We have been looking forward to the 2013 Fall Championships of the NJCAA since we launched the upgrade to Volar in August,” said NJCAA TV Assistant General Manager Randy Phillips. “The experience for the NJCAA TV viewer will be tremendous compared to last year and the student-athletes and teams competing at these national tournaments are going to be featured like never before.”

Live broadcasts of select fall national championships on NJCAA TV will take place throughout the month November. The Division III Women’s Soccer Championship from the campus of Tompkins Cortland Community College in Dryden, N.Y., kicks off the fall championship broadcast schedule on November 7th.

“This is one of the most exciting times of the year,” said NJCAA Assistant Executive Director Mark Krug. “Coaches and student-athletes have been preparing for months for the opportunity to compete for a national championship. It is only fitting that we do our best to showcase their efforts and the great events our championship hosts facilitate for our member colleges. Thanks to NJCAA TV, along with our new partnership with Volar Video and the success of NJCAA Sports Properties, our primary goal of advancing two-year college athletics is reaching new heights.”

Broadcasts from each championship event is made possible through the cooperation and support of each tournament host and their volunteer staff. The NJCAA and NJCAA Sports Properties thanks all parties involved at these championship events for their efforts in assisting NJCAA TV showcase the organization to a worldwide audience.
