IEEE 1394 - Definition

IEEE 1394 is a standard for high-speed serial devices such as digital video and digital audio editing equipment. If a device is IEEE 1394 compatible, you can connect the device to the IEEE 1394 connector while the computer is running and Windows will detect the device and inform you when it is ready for use. The IEEE 1394 bus is used primarily to connect high-end digital video and digital audio devices to your computer; however, some hard disks, printers, scanners, and DVD drives can also be connected to your computer using the IEEE 1394 connector. The IEEE 1394 bus is also known in the industry as FireWire.
