Tuxera NTFS Chosen by Syabas for Media Players

June 16, 2010


Syabas Technology has licensed Tuxera NTFS to bring seamless interoperability to its cutting-edge media players. This has been announced by Tuxera, provider of Windows-compatible file systems for Linux, Mac and other platforms. Digital media content in Syabas' flagship Popcorn Hour Networked Media Jukeboxes, the C-200 and A-200 will be streamed or played back using Tuxera's embedded file system solution.

In a release, TL Lim, CEO of Syabas said, "Tuxera's interoperable file systems are instrumental in the ongoing media and device convergence. They provide Popcorn Hour Media Jukeboxes with unmatched NTFS file system read/write performance.”

Lim added that the playback of high bitrate, high definition content along with rock-solid reliability and unsurpassed Windows interoperability is enabled with the blazingly fast performance of Tuxera. Tuxera NTFS also proved to be a quick migration for the company’s new embedded Linux platform. This is critical in the fast-paced world of consumer electronics, concluded Lim.

According to Mikko Välimäki, CEO of Tuxera, the company is being led by Syabas into a new way of freely sharing music, pictures, and video among multiple devices, instead of having them limited as device-specific content. Mikko added that the company was pleased with consumers’ newfound desire to mix and match media across their home entertainment systems, portable storage devices, and PCs being met by the Popcorn Hour Networked Media Jukeboxes with the help of Tuxera’s file system interoperability.

Tuxera provides file systems that allow music, pictures, videos and other content to be ported across devices mediums. And users can experience plug and play interoperability with their laptops, digital cameras, set-top-boxes, mobile phones – any kind of consumer electronic that happens to have a Tuxera file system inside.

Syabas launched the Popcorn Hour line of network media options in late 2007. The company has since captured a significant share of the global market for digital media players and streaming media devices in combination with its licensed platform. Popcorn Hour has been established as a well recognized consumer brand with the runaway success of the company's Networked Media Tanks in recent years.
