Infra-Red

The IrDA organisation has some documents on the IrTran-P protocol used by the camera's infra-red port. Note that IrTran-P is actually built on top of several layers: IrComm, LM-IAS/TinyTP, IrLMP, IrLAP, SerialIR. Documentation on these can be found at the IrDA web site on their Standards and Specifications pages.
