FireWire is Apple Inc.’s brand name for the IEEE 1394 interface.
i.Link is the Sony Corp. name for the interface.
The IEEE 1394 standard: FireWire and i.Link is a high-speed serial bus developed by Apple and Texas Instruments — most commonly used for downloading video from digital camcorders to the computer. The first version of FireWire supported 100, 200 and 400 Mbits/sec transfer rates at a distance of 4.5 meters between devices. Almost all digital camcorders have included this connection interface since 1995. IEEE 1394b allows higher speeds at greater distances and was introduced in 2003.
