Firewire on the rise

Dallas — Hoping to accelerate adoption of Firewire, the 1394 trade association has issued a statement crowing that the adoption of “the [use of] IEEE-1394/FireWire multimedia bus is accelerating, with almost 130 new announcements from mid-summer through late October.”

The products, they say, range from 12 notebooks and 90 desktops to digital video and still cameras, a set-top box from Samsung, and some storage systems. All new products incorporating FireWire, with either the FireWire or i.LINK logos, can now be found here.

“This past summer was a productive period for 1394-equipped product designs and introductions,” said James Snider, executive director of the 1394 Trade Association. “We see a gradual acceleration in design activity throughout the industry, particularly in PCs and storage products, which is very encouraging.”
