IEEE-1394, also known as FireWire, iLink(R) or DV, is a versatile, high-speed, and low cost method of interconnecting a variety of computer peripherals and consumer electronics devices. FireWire provides a direct digital link among up to 63 devices, with transfer speeds up to 400 Mbps. Digital video (DV) camcorders, scanners, printers, videoconferencing cameras, and fixed disk drives can all share a common bus connection not only to a PC, but to each other as well.With Windows(R) ME(R) or Apple's FireWire Target Disk Mode you can use an IEEE-1394 cable to connect two computers together to allow for filesharing. Designed to be 100% compatible (1995 compliant) with Apple(R) FireWire, Sony(R) iLink, and all other IEEE-1394 peripherals.
