Can someone please explain it to me?
Do you mean Firewire? If so it is a high speed digital connection used by computers for applications such as video capture from a camcorder. It is also being introduced as a secure connection for home theater applications such as hd, dvd-a, sacd, etc. Someone probably knows more than me but I think these are the basics. Jason
Firewire, like USB, is a high speed, 400Mbps digital connection. Its currently used in DVcams and other computer applications, but there are plans to use it as a connection for audio/video/HT applications. For speed its great, but it suffers from a few problems much like S/PDIF. IIRC it has to do with the timing/clocking of the signal, but I'm not an expert on this.
Thanks for the replies,
So do you mean, this would be used for stuff like video on demand?
I just answered this question in another thread, so I'll just quote myself here...
