The 1394 Trade Association and IDB Forum will co-sponsor a demonstration of the IEEE 1394 multimedia standard using plastic opticalfiber (POF) at the upcoming fourth general meeting of the IDB Forum, Feb. 23-25 in Kyoto.

The demonstration, to be conducted by NEC Corporation, shows simultaneous audio and video streaming between multiple consumer electronics devices and computers connected by POF and, for some connections, over copper. During the streaming, Internet Protocol packets and digital video data are transported with IP-over-1394 and AV/C protocols. The demonstration shows the use of various physical media, along with both the real-time and asynchronous capabilities of the 1394 multimedia technology, according to Patrick Yu of NEC subsidiary NEC Electronics, a member of the 1394 Trade Association Board of Directors.
