1394 Trade Association
will hold its second quarterly meeting April 30 through May 3 in Barcelona, Spain.
The worldwide organization is dedicated to the advancement of the IEEE 1394 multimedia standard (that’s FireWire to Mac users). It boasts 170 members dedicated to advancing the high-end connectivity technology developed by Apple.
The future of FireWire continues to look good. For example, last November the IEEE 1394 multimedia standard continued its expansion into wireless applications last month, as the IEEE 802.11e Wireless LAN Task Group adopted Quality of Service (QoS) enhancement proposals made by the 1394 Trade Association’s Wireless Working Group (WWG).
