Recommended Firewire Accessories for Broadcasting on Ustream.

HD Cameras or Camcorders which use Firewire (also known as IEEE 1394 or iLink) rarely come with the cables and adapters necessary to connect the camera to the computer.

Most modern computers will have a single Firewire 800 port and the camera most likely has a single, smaller 4-pin Firewire port or a 6-pin port so an adapter and hubs such as a Moshi iLynx 800 Advanced Firewire Combo Hub or Belkin FireWire 6-Port Hub maybe required.

The Moshi iLynx 800 Advanced Firewire Combo Hub provides four downstream USB 2.0 ports (backward compatible with USB 1.1) and two FireWire 800 ports (backward compatible with FireWire 400 with an adapter such as the Moshi FireWire 800 to 400 Adapter).

Alternatively, the Belkin FireWire 6-Port Hub delivers six, peer-to-peer FireWire ports that support data throughput of up to 400Mbps.
