Consumer Audio and Video products have evolved over the years to meet user needs for functions and forms in a non-networked environment. Once connected in system these products reveal a high degree of redundancy, wasted functionality, and sub-optimal quality. Active networking of these products will allow us to streamline equipment components and re-structure component costs for higher performance and simpler user interface. This paper presents a survey of functions and performance quality expected by the consumer, and will discuss options for organizing these in a high performance all-digital networked environment, using protocols such as IEEE1394.
