SUBJECT: Orange Micro leads the way yet again with the release of the Orange Link™ FireWire® 800/1394b PCI card.

Anaheim, CA - Orange Micro maintains its place on the cutting edge of connectivity by bringing the OrangeLink FireWire 800/1394b PCI card to market.

FireWire 800/1394b peripherals allow users to double the rate of FireWire transactions – up to 800 Mb/s. FireWire 800/1394b technology functions with cables that can reach over twenty times as far the previous FireWire technology. The OrangeLink FireWire 800/1394b PCI card is equipped with two 9-pin FireWire 800/1394b ports so users can simultaneously use two FireWire 800/1394b devices. It is also fully backward compatible with an additional 6-pin FireWire 400/1394a port. This combination ensures that you can enjoy the highest performance possible with the FireWire peripheral of your choice, including DV camcorders and portable hard drives. The OrangeLink FireWire 800/1394b PCI card is designed to operate in a 64-bit PCI slot. It will also function in a 32-bit PCI slot, but this will limit your performance.

Product Details:
The OrangeLink FireWire 800/1394b PCI Card version carries a MSRP of $89.00 and will ship in May of 2003. Video editing software is included with the package.

The OrangeLink FireWire 800/1394b PCI card will function at FireWire 400/1394a speeds in Windows 98SE, Me, 2000 and XP as well as Mac OS 8.6 and newer using OS provided FireWire drivers. FireWire 1394b drivers for Windows XP will be available from Microsoft. FireWire 1394b drivers for Windows 98SE, Me, and 2000 will be available pending Orange Micro release. Apple Macintosh OS 10.2.x FireWire 800 support will be available pending Apple release.
