Is IEEE1394(firewire) the next audio/video interface?

by networkboy / March 17, 2005 8:52 PM PST

Some friends that work in the Pro-audio, (recording industry), have been advising me that firewire is the next a.v interface. Where do the non-Pro users sit on this?

Not the next, it is the interface.

My lesson on USB 2.0 for camcorders is to just forget about it and hook up with firewire.

My lesson on mass storage is the reverse. Forget firewire (except on the Apple!) and use USB 2.0

Hope my lessons help.

FireWire is great for that thing, but the only major company really backing it is Apple, and lately they've been backing away from it as well.

It's looking like another case where the inferior technology (USB) is going to win in the long term.
