Top 5 reasons to deploy VMware with Tegile

Sony is to test third-party consumer IEEE 1394 devices to ensure their interoperability.

The program was begun this week, says the Nikkei Newswire, with the establishment in Japan of a 1394 network operability verification lab, as the company calls it.

Sony is marketing the lab as a means for companies' whose products support 1394 to ensure compatibility with Sony's products more cheaply than before. Instead of buying in Sony kit, manufacturers take their equipment to Sony.

Sony's plan is to stress the universality of its own 1394 brand, iLink, but the program should help boost the broader 1394 standard, which is becoming better known in its own right.

Sony's lab will initially focus on ensuring compatibility with Sony products, but the company did raise the prospect that the lab may eventually verify compatibility with third-party kit too. ®
