TIMESINDONESIA, MALANG – The Faculty of Engineering of Brawijaya University created a new and innovative video conference media, HiG. This media was prepared to facilitate all conference needs, especially during the Covid-19 pandemic and the 'New Normal' regulation.

There are a lot of video conference media, besides Zoom, there are also WebEx, jitsi, Google Meet, and so on. HiG is a special creation from Indonesia.

The alumny of Electrical Engineering Major, Engineering Faculty of Universitas Brawijaya 2011, Niki Netrahutama, alongside with the lecturer of Regional and Urban Planning Major, Engineering Faculty of Universitas Brawijaya, Dr. Eng. Fadly Usman, ST., MT. created HiG as a new solution for the online teleconference media for the people of Indonesia.

The beta version had been tested previously to more than 500 users via smartphones and desktops. Many criticism and suggestions have been received by the developer of the application for further developments.

For two months during its trial period, several parties also conducted communication for cooperation, including Sandiaga Uno and Indra Cahya Uno from the management of OK OCE.

Both of them hoped that this new teleconference media can help micro, small, and medium enterprise owners to communicate and interact with their customers online. There is still no realization of cooperation between HiG and OK OCE.

Dr Eng Fadly mentioned that there is also another party that supported the creation of HiG as a better solution for online teleconference media, the subsidiary from the State Electricity Company, ICON+. ICON+ provides services for telecommunication technology and information development.

ICON+ through an online meeting with the General Manager of ICON+ for East Java Region, Agus Widya Santoso, and the manager of ICON+ office for the Malang region, Eko Candrasasmito had planned cooperation planning.

One of those important planning is the agreement to provide a huge server capacity for HiG, which can provide high-quality service for hundreds or thousands of users at the same time,

There are 3 packets for HiG users, Free, Basic, and Premium. The free version provides online communication service for a limited time of 30 minutes and a maximum user of 25.

The basic version provides unlimited online communication time for 50 users. The premium version provides unlimited online communication time for 100 users.

To get the monthly subscription for its packets, you can get the basic version and premium version for USD5 and USD10, respectively. Those prices are far more affordable if compared to the subscriptions for its counterpart, Zoom and WebEx.

"Hopefully, we can get HiG launched as soon as possible to facilitate the public and especially Indonesian users as an alternative of teleconference media with affordable price," mentioned Dr. Eng. Fadly, which is also the founder of Gurupedia. (*)
