Fortis Selects Tuxera FAT for Personal Video Recorders, Delivering Stunning Performance Improvements and Fail Safe Reliability

HELSINKI and SEOUL, South Korea — Tuxera Inc., leader in interoperable file systems announced today that Fortis, one of the leading set-top boxes manufacturers, selected Tuxera’s all-new FAT for their personal video recorders (PVRs) for improved interoperability and file system reliability. The new cooperation extends an on-going long-term license agreement under which Tuxera NTFS has been shipping several years in a number of Fortis products.

Redesigned Tuxera FAT is an enhanced implementation of the FAT file system. It delivers high performance, reliability and interoperability at par with widely deployed and proven Tuxera exFAT and NTFS. Tuxera FAT provides faster data transfers, improved application responsiveness, data preserving fail-safe operation with power saving options at the same time.

“What we look for is fast and intensive read and write operation in low and high capacity storage devices. Tuxera’s new, fail-safe FAT brings our customers a significant performance boost and improved file system reliability. Along with integrated Tuxera NTFS, it ensures that no file gets lost or corrupted in a plug-or power-off situation and lets our users enjoy full compatibility recording and playback with Windows formatted portable storages such as USB memory sticks and external hard disk drives which are so readily available around us,” commented Jake Lee, Sale & Marketing Director at Fortis.

Some of the key factors contributing to the growth in the set-top box market include an increased adoption of the HD and Ultra HD STB, and accelerating number of Pay TV subscribers.

“Fortis is a true innovation leader outfitting its world’s best smart STBs with multimedia and hybrid features. We are very committed to innovate together and are looking forward to extending our technical cooperation with a company with a similar outlook. This new license extension also signals another step in our increasing investments in the Korean market,” commented Mikko Välimäki Tuxera CEO.
