Since many of you who are on this reflector do not receive T10
announcements, I've posted a report of the SBP-2 study group that convened
last Friday in Huntington Beach, CA (it may be downloaded from
ftp://ftp.t10.org/t10/document.00/00-371r0.pdf). Please refer to the PDF
file for more detailed information; a brief summary of the study group
results are as follows:
1) There is consensus that enhancements and extensions to SBP-2 are
appropriate and timely.
2) A revision of SBP-2 should be commenced and include the work items
discussed in the report.
3) With respect to one work item in particular, isochronous facilities for
SBP-2, there is recognition that significant effort has taken place in the
last two years in the area of AV disks and that the locus of that expertise
is the 1394 Trade Association. The T10 members present at the study group
meeting wish to find a suitable venue (or venues) for the standards
activity so that the broadest possible participation of experts is encouraged.
Because of the importance of the last item, I will be presenting a briefing
on SBP-2 standards activity during the Architecture working group meeting
Thursday, October 26 in Redmond, WA. I know that not ALL of the 1394 PWG
participants are 1394 Trade Association members, so I'd like to extend an
invitation to nonmembers to attend the Architecture working group.
This will be an opportunity to explore the ways in which isochronous SBP-2
might enable product innovation in the realm of printers and scanners.
Because it is important to engage broad participation and because there
will be a discussion of future meeting sites amenable to all participants,
I encourage your attendance at the Architecture working group.
