Paragon Software’s New Portal Prescribes a Cure for Consumer Device Data Exchange Headaches
News Sep 27, 2013
Paragon Software Group (PSG), a cross-platform technology leader in mobile device and embedded system solutions, has announced the launch of a portal hosting a comprehensive selection of essential free or inexpensive tools for users of multiple devices seeking to solve incompatibility issues on consumer electronics.
Users of PCs, smartphones, audio and video equipment, TV sets, DVD players, digital cameras, and camcorders increasingly need to interchange data content between various incompatible systems. To solve the interoperability issue, Paragon Software has developed eight essential tools (seven drivers and a converter) to guarantee full high-performance read/write access to volumes of the most popular file systems (NTFS, HFS+, Ext2/Ext3/Ext4, etc.) under various platforms (Android, Windows, Mac, Linux) where these file systems normally are not supported.
Paragon Software’s cross-platform tools are based on the company’s exclusive Universal File System Driver (UFSD) technology and enable any device to communicate and share files regardless of its operating system. Beyond access, the tools provide the highest data throughput speeds possible — equivalent to, or exceeding, native performance.
In an engaging, interactive way, the new portal invites visitors to pick two platforms. The portal then suggests the right software to solve the incompatibility issue and gives the user an opportunity to download it.
The cross-platform tools:
NTFS for Mac OS X provides OS X with full read and write access to NTFS with the same high speed as native HFS+ files.
HFS+ for Windows provides full read/write access to HFS/HFS+ partitions on any type of disks (GPT, MBR) under Windows.
NTFS & HFS for Android enables users of Android-based smartphones, handheld media players, digital video and other portable products to utilize storage media formatted by Mac OS and Windows operating systems.
ExtFS for Windows is a free utility designed to eliminate barriers between Linux and Windows operating systems by granting full read and write access to Linux-formatted partitions.
ExtFS for Mac OS X grants full read and write access to Ext2/3/4 partitions under Mac® OS X.
NTFS & HFS for Linux Express grants full read and write access to Mac OS X and Windows partitions under all latest Linux versions.
NTFS & HFS for Linux Pro includes all functionality of the Express edition and additional advanced utilities to create NTFS and HFS+ volumes.
NTFS-HFS Converter is a Windows utility that converts NTFS volumes to HFS+ volumes, or HFS+ volumes to NTFS. This utility consists of a wizard that lets the user select the desired volume for conversion, gives the option to back it up, and then quickly performs the conversion.
The launch of the portal is the latest initiative in Paragon’s support of users of multiple devices seeking the fastest and most reliable software to access data on the otherwise incompatible systems.
Small imperfections in a wine glass or tiny creases in a contact lens can be tricky to make out, even in good light. In almost total darkness, images of such transparent features or objects are nearly impossible to decipher. But now, engineers at MIT have developed a technique that can reveal these “invisible” objects, in the dark.
For scientists wrestling with problems as diverse as containing superhot plasma in a fusion reactor, improving the accuracy of weather forecasts, or probing the unexplained dynamics of a distant galaxy, turbulence-spawning shear flow is a serious complicating factor. A new supercomputer-powered effort aims to make modelling shear far easier.
