Gigabyte System Network was developed in 1999 for the efficient movement of large quantities of data. Applied to video, it allows realtime transfers of larger-than-HD images on a network. GSN allows transfer speeds up to 800MB/s, has low latency, and is an ANSI standard compatible with HIPPI, Ethernet, and other standard networks, providing full-duplex data transmission over up to 200m. It was not widely used as there were competing standards. Today its speed is overtaken by the later versions of Fibre Channel and SCSI, which are part of the mass computer market, so low priced.
