PSG's New Universal File System Improves Transfer Rates between External Media and Smart TVs
Smart TV users can look forward to faster recording and playback speeds from external storage devices with better data security as well; all thanks to Paragon Software Group's (PSG) latest UFSD 9.0 Embedded technology. When integrated with Smart TVs, the new system drivers are also said to be format and medium agnostic, such that they'll work just as well with Windows, Mac, or other media players to ensure a smoother and higher quality playback and recording of HD video content. Read on for the official press release.
IRVINE, California – Paragon Software Group (PSG) announces the release of Paragon UFSD 9.0 Embedded, the first technology to ensure complete data security when removing external storage devices from Smart TVs. Based on the industry’s first and highest-performing Universal File System Driver (UFSD) technology, Paragon UFSD 9.0 Embedded guarantees the smoothest, fastest, highest-quality playback and recording of HD video content to or from Smart TV devices of any platform.Users of embedded systems such as routers, media players, smartphones, tablets or network-attached storage devices want to be free to disable removable media quickly and without having to take further actions – like clicking on the “safely remove hardware” icon, while also ensuring that the data is safe. In embedded systems there are often no built-in “safe removal” functions available. Paragon’s solution to this problem is the “Standby mode” option that allows users, in a matter of seconds, and without any effort, to disconnect the external storage device, at the same time guaranteeing complete data safety.
In addition to data safety, maximum recording speeds are necessary for the ability to transfer HD-quality data to external storage media. To ensure the maximum recording speed, Linux Kernel utilizes “deferred” or “postponed” recording, writing and recording multiple changes in a single write operation to a disk or flash drive, which requires much more time than changing the data in RAM – therefore cached write operations sometimes require more than 30 seconds to get user data to the storage safely. Paragon UFSD 9.0 Embedded facilitates safe, consistent flushing of all modified structures of the file system and user data to the disk in less than 10 seconds, allowing users to remove their storage media without worrying about file system integrity.
