About FireWire 400 (1394a)
1394a (also known as FireWire or i.LINK) is an international standard data transfer protocol created by Apple Computer, Inc. and ratified by the International Standards Organization as IEEE 1394a. Like other data I/O protocols such as SCSI, Fibre Channel, and IDE, 1394a itself knows nothing about video, compression, or editing. It is a series of standardized commands for moving data from one device to another.
