AUGUST 30--Intel vice president Louis Burns, in his keynote address Wednesday at the Intel Developer Forum, Fall 2001 (San Jose, CA), gave the first-ever demonstration of a Hi-Speed USB 2.0 digital video camera connected to an Intel Pentium 4 processor platform based on an Intel prototype chipset with an integrated USB 2.0 controller. The Intel Desktop Platforms Group executive said the chipset would enable broad deployment of Hi-Speed USB 2.0 next year. The Hi-Speed USB 2.0 interface provides the bandwidth necessary to deliver the real-time video from Opteon's USB 2.0 camera and will allow a single person to create TV-broadcast quality videos in real time.
The nonprofit USB Implementers Forum Inc. was formed to provide a support organization and forum for the advancement and adoption of USB technology. The USB-IF facilitates the development of high-quality, compatible USB devices, and promotes the benefits of USB and the quality of products that have passed compliance testing.
