Our Company

Started in 2008 and having grown to over 300 customers in 47 countries worldwide, Frozen Mountain provides cross-platform, licensed Internet-Based Real-Time Communication (iRTC) SDKs and services that allow your organization to incorporate WebRTC audio/video streaming, selective forwarding, audio/video mixing, screen sharing, call signaling, text chat, shared whiteboards, browser synchronization and internet pub/sub messaging into your applications.

At Frozen Mountain, we develop our products with an "ear-to-the-ground" approach that ensures we are providing solutions that are relevant and effective in meeting business needs in a world of evolving technology. We work very closely with our clients and partners, helping them to establish an understanding of their own needs and how their requirements can be realized in a modern connected architecture. This approach simultaneously gives users the rich experience they have come to demand and provides clients with a maintainable, extensible, and therefore cost-effective, application solution.

Our Team

Our team of over thirty iRTC professionals is led by two brothers, Jerod and Anton Venema, who have a passion for real-time communications technology. Located in both the United States and Canada, the very core of our business relies on the communication and collaboration made possible by our own products. We are truly passionate about iRTC!

Our Values

We are committed to building and maintaining trustworthy relationships with our partners, colleagues, and customers, as well as keeping an active presence in the wider development community. Our employees are encouraged to contribute to open source projects related to our areas of expertise. The community is a part of our family, and we want to treat it that way.
