Tencent Cloud Empowers Indonesian Media Group to Deliver Revolutionary Experience with Super App TribunX

Tencent Cloud’s cutting-edge solutions take center stage in groundbreaking news and media consolidation initiative

JAKARTA, Indonesia, Feb. 26, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — Tencent Cloud, the cloud business of global technology company Tencent, in collaboration with leading multi-cloud expert Hi Cloud, today announced its partnership with Indonesia-based news outlet TribunNews to boost the TribunX Super App and roll out a groundbreaking news experience for its users. Tencent Cloud’s cutting-edge solutions are front and center in this collaboration with Hi Cloud, which is leading the infrastructure for building the newly enhanced app.

The TribunX Super App is now part of an emergence in super apps that are now common in Asia. A super app is like a building made of bricks – one massive app made out of modular components, or mini-apps, that the user can use and remove as needed. First coined to describe Tencent’s WeChat app, it serves as a one-stop location for daily needs, offering features such as food and grocery delivery, e-commerce, ride-hailing, digital payments, social media consumption, financial services, and many more within a single platform.

News Delivery Reimagined Through Cloud Technology

According to Gartner, more than 50% of the world’s population will regularly use super apps for their daily needs by 2027. Leveraging Tencent Cloud’s advanced cloud technology, the TribunX Super App aims to position itself as the go-to platform for digital news consumption. With already over 1 million downloads, the TribunX Super App offers a seamless experience by combining TribunNews’ renowned news reporting with the contributions of Tribun Network’s other partners, such as Tribun Video, its video news platform, and Tribun Jual Beli, its e-commerce platform for second-hand goods. This comprehensive platform integrates the latest news updates with a range of services, including real-time global news, video-on-demand (VOD), live video reports, ticket booking services, and a unique social networking feature called TribunMe, enabling users to connect with influential figures in Indonesia.

TribunX has access to Tencent Cloud’s cloud video processing technologies to deliver an exceptional – sweet and simple – user experience. With features such as Real-Time Messaging Protocol (RTMP), Adaptive Bitrate, and Live Transcoding, users can enjoy a seamless, high-quality audio-visual experience regardless of their device or network conditions. Moreover, Digital Rights Management (DRM) adds an extra layer of security, making the super app a safe and trusted platform, while Tencent Cloud’s Global Content Delivery Network (CDN) ensures fast and reliable access to TribunX’s content across different regions, taking the super app users’ experience to higher levels.

TribunX’s All-Encompassing, Seamless and Efficient Transition via Tencent Cloud

TribunX has successfully implemented a mobile-first strategy with the support of Tencent Cloud, ensuring ease of migration and management, stability, security, and cost-effectiveness. Through Tencent Cloud solutions such as the Tencent Online Video Platform (TOVP), Tencent Cloud Object Storage (COS), and Tencent Cloud Database (DB), users can now tap into Tribun’s years of content, as well as enjoy additional features such as live streaming, VOD, interactive video capabilities, and multi-screen support.

Jimmy Chen, Vice President of Tencent Cloud International and Managing Director of Southeast Asia, said, “We are thrilled to be collaborating with Tribun on this transformative project that consolidates the news experience all over Indonesia. Our cloud computing solutions, coupled with Tribun’s commitment to hyperlocal news and user-centric services, have resulted in an innovative super app that sets new standards in the news media industry. We look forward to the results and benefits of this groundbreaking project that keeps Indonesians up-to-date in news consumption in the digital era.”

Dahlan Dahi, CEO of Tribun Network, said, “The partnership between Tribun and Tencent Cloud signifies a new era in news delivery, as we go full throttle in our digital transformation journey. By leveraging Tencent Cloud’s expertise in cloud computing and its cutting-edge media solutions, we have created a super app that not only addresses the needs of our users but also provides a seamless and personalized news and media experience for a variety of other services.”
