Our Values

Focus. We are focused on hitting goals. Every individual has goals with deadlines that lead directly to the customer’s overall success. We move fast and with discipline; time is of the essence.


Ownership. Each individual acts as an owner and your title internally doesn’t matter. The people closest to the data make the decisions. If we see a gap anywhere in the company, we jump in and close the gap because we care.


Responsibility. We manage our team and talents to positively benefit society, which also means we won’t work with certain industries, such as pornography. We are committed to making the world a better place by improving the quality of human connections.


Customers. We are here to serve our customers, not ourselves. We are only satisfied when customers are satisfied according to them. We love our customers and show it by building great products that work reliably and following up quickly.


Excellence. Our goals and expectations are extremely high. By the standards of the average corporation, these goals may seem unreasonable, but this is how we outperform. To hit our goals and to reach our potential as a company, we think unreasonably.



Our History


In 2008, brothers Jerod and Anton Venema start Frozen Mountain with a vision to develop a collaborative diagramming tool.



In 2009 we launched WebSync, a high-volume signaling and messaging server. Early iterations of WebSync used long-polling, based on the Bayeux specification for establishing bidirectional client/server connections—two years before the WebSocket protocol was standardized.

Facing high demand for WebSync, we refocus on developing commercial pub-sub systems.



In 2013, just months after the first cross-browser video call was made with WebRTC, we launched IceLink, a cross-platform WebRTC solution compatible with Chrome, Firefox, Internet Explorer (via ActiveX control) and Safari (via Java applet).



In 2017 customer demand for large scale video conferencing grew exponentially and we launched our flagship product LiveSwitch. This highly flexible server software stack and SDK enables dynamic scaling between video connection types depending on the session needs.



In 2019 we launched LiveSwitch Cloud, a highly flexible, fully managed and enterprise-grade live video platform. LiveSwitch Cloud features the same hybrid architecture as LiveSwitch Server with deeper insight from real-time metrics, reports and integrations.



In 2021 Frozen Mountain embraced its product-led future by renaming the company to LiveSwitch.

The new company name and brand represent the beginning of our product expansion, including LiveSwitch Private Cloud.



In 2022 LiveSwitch released SimplyOn™, an easy video conferencing solution that requires no downloads, no guest registration and a single click to join a meeting from any browser or smart device.
