1394 Printer Working Group
Revised Draft Charter - February 26, 1997
Current status: Revised charter for 1394 Printer Working Group
Description of Working Group and Goals
IEEE-1394 High Speed Serial Bus enables new and enhanced printing applications. Standardization of the 1394 printing model(s) grows and extends the printing market and accelerates the adoption of the IEEE-1394 standard interface.
1394 printing applications want to take advantage of the new capabilities of 1394, including:
- Multiple Asynchronous and Isochronous streams
- Peer to Peer Communication
- High Bandwidth
Standards for use of these capabilities need to be developed and endorsed
for use by 1394 printing devices and other 1394 devices that wish to
communicate with them. These standards will enable interoperability
between 1394 devices.
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 a specification to define a mechanism for printing
on IEEE Std. 1394-1995 compliant links. This specification will include
existing standards or specifications and any new specifications as necessary.
Areas of review will include:
- Job Submission
- Transport protocols
- Link Layers
- Data formats
- Compressed & Uncompressed Image
- Page Description Languages
- Printer Command Languages
- Device Management
- Service Discovery
- Plug and Play
- CSR and Configuration ROM
The 1394 Printer Working Group is chartered by the PWG and coordinates
with the 1394 TA and 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 computer and consumer electronics industry.
1394 PWG Webmaster.
