A benefit of 1394 is the ability of all devices to participate equally on the bus.
Any device is allowed to inititate direct communication with any other device.
1394 printing applications want to take advantage of the new capabilities of
The 1394 Printer Working Group will be the focal point for the development and coordination of a comprehensive printing solution for the 1394 I/F.
This project will produce specifications to define mechanisms for printing on IEEE Std. 1394-1995 compliant links. These specifications will include existing standards or specifications and any new specifications as necessary.
The first specification will enable device and basic service discovery for traditional computing and non-computing platforms. This specification will provide support for discovery and identification of one or more communication protocols.
Additional specifications will address communication protocols and / or data formats. One of these specifications will address a simple, common communication protocol and data format(s) which will enable a high level of interoperability among 1394 devices.
The 1394 Printer Working Group is chartered by the PWG and will maintain a close relationship with the 1394 TA. The 1394 PWG is open to anyone interested in contributing to the project. The 1394 PWG will seek the participation of other industry groups and key representatives of the electronics industry.
