Overview

The first hands-on introduction to HAVi — the new Java-based home entertainment standard.

  • HAVi software architecture and HAVi services
  • The future of HAVi: from digital VCRs to shared broadband Web access
  • Creating portable, distributed applications for networked home environments
  • Running HAVi over high-speed IEEE 1394 (i.Link/FireWire) connections
  • Detailed HAVi API descriptions

HAVi Example by Example is the first practical, hands-on guide to HAVi (Home Audio/Video Interoperability) — the breakthrough technology that enables digital consumer electronics devices and home appliances to communicate.

In this book, two leading Sony implementers and HAVi designers review key elements of the HAVi 1.10 specification, providing extensive sample Java code and in-depth insight into HAVi's applications and planned evolution.

Want to build the software that'll drive tomorrow's most exciting consumer electronics markets? This is the jumpstart you've been looking for!

HAVi, which stands for Home Audio Video, is a new standard that will allow software programmers to develop applications for future home consumer electronics products. HAVi, will be the platform for all consumer electronics development for the future. This book is designed to provide the software developer with a practical, "by example" approach to learning how to program within the HAVi environment. It contains less theory and more application.

Preface

Preface

What Is HAVi?

HAVi—Home Audio-Video Interoperability—is a system architecture for the development of home network applications. The HAVi architecture is specified by an organization of consumer electronics and software companies. For HAVi, a home network is a group of connected AV (audio-video) devices within a home. This is sometimes called a home entertainment network or an AV cluster. Devices compliant with the HAVi specification implement a set of system services that allow them to interoperate over IEEE 1394 connections. IEEE 1394, also known as FireWire and i.LINK, is a high-speed serial bus used to connect devices into tree-shaped networks. HAVi specifies services to locate, query, control, and extend IEEE 1394 audio-video devices.

Who This Book Is For

This book is intended primarily for developers with an interest in home entertainment devices and services. Others who may find the book of interest include those studying networking and distributed systems, and designers of audio-video products. Basic knowledge of Java is useful, but some familiarity with programming is all that is needed to follow many of the examples.

Programming Aids

The HAVi by Example Web site is located at www.vividlogic.com/hbx. At this Web site you can find:

  • JavaDoc for HJA 1.1
  • source code examples, and
  • HAVi 1.1 SDK (Software Developers Kit).

To run the SDK you will need a Pentium-class PC with Linux 2.4.1 or later (this version of Linux has IEEE 1394 support), a JVM, and JDK 1.1.8 or later. If you want to control HAVi devices, you will need anIEEE 1394 port on your PC. See www.vividlogic.com/hbx/releaseNotes.txt for a list of supported IEEE 1394 cards.
