Our History

ls-about-us-frozen-mountain-logo

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

ls-about-us-websync-logo

In 2009 we launch WebSync, a high-volume signalling 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.

ls-about-us-icelink-logo

In 2013, just months after the first cross-browser video call was made with WebRTC, we launch 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.
