Johnny On The Term "FireWire" Oct056

FireWire is the term used to describe ieee 1394 cables. It is what people in the media industry and average people call the cables. It is a trade name but most manufactures of ieee 1394 cables use FireWire as the name of their products. DVD is a trade name owned by Toshiba, Philips and Sony, CD is a trade name owned by Philips and Sony, USB is a trade name owned by Intel but all of these are used universally.
I recommend using the name firewire, as it is easy to remember and the most common name used to refer to these cables.

* from website http://www.webopedia.com/TERM/S/S_Video.html

Short for Super-Video,
a


technology

for
transmitting

video
signals
over a cable by dividing the video information into two
separate signals: one for color (chrominance),
and the other for brightness (luminance).
When sent to a television, this produces sharper images
than

composite video

, where the video information is
transmitted as a single signal over one wire. This is
because televisions are designed to display separate
Luminance (Y) and Chrominance (C) signals. (The terms
Y/C video and S-Video
are the same.)

Computer

monitors
, on
the other hand, are designed for

RGB
signals.
Most digital video devices, such as

digital cameras

and game machines, produce video in RGB format. The
images look best, therefore, when output on a


computer


monitor
. When output on
a television, however, they look better in S-Video
format than in composite format.

To use S-Video, the device
sending the signals must support S-Video output and the
device receiving the signals must have an S-Video input
jack. Then you need a special S-Video cable to connect
the two devices.
