The IEEE 1394 interface is a serial bus interface standard for high-speed communications and real-time data transfer. The interface also is known as Firewire® by Apple®, and i.LINK® by Sony®. IEEE 1394 has replaced parallel SCSI in many applications due to lower implementation costs and a simplified, more adaptable cabling system. Many modern digital camcorders and computers have included this connection for home or professional audio/video uses. IEEE 1394 makes full use of all SCSI capabilities and has high sustained data transfer rates, a feature especially important for audio and video editors. IEEE 1394b (bilingual), also known as FireWire® 800, was designed for the next generation of high-performance storage devices and multimedia applications because it offers connectivity speeds of up to 800 Mbps; twice the speed of earlier Firewire® products. It features a 9-pin connector design and simultaneous connection of up to 60+ devices, real-time digital audio and video transfer, peer-to-peer device connections, plug-and-play installation, and hot-swap capability. It is backward-compatible with existing technology, ideal for current products as well as for newer IEEE1394b devices. IEEE 1394b cables are perfect for connecting your new devices to legacy 1394a ports.
