You can easily capture and output any DV-format video via the FireWire port on your
computer. Video, audio, timecode, and device control data are all transferred via a
single FireWire cable. FireWire (also referred to as IEEE 1394 or i.LINK) is a high-speed
technology for connecting and transmitting data to and from various external devices,
such as video and audio interfaces, hard disks, and digital cameras. FireWire is
supported by many professional and consumer-level DV camcorders and decks.
