io newbie questions

I am just beginning my research into buying a 3d camera, mostly for video. From reading the forum I have some questions that I have not figured out the answer to yet. I know(?) that io is the distance between the 2 lenses and that that making it wider creates a bigger 3d effect. I know it will take a lot more reading and probably a lot of experimentation before I completely understand the concept but I need a few questions answered so I can keep up with the conversations.

1. What exactly does io stand for?

2. Does it mean the same thing as Stereo base?

3. Is io important on the 3d camcorders like the TD10 & SDT750. They seem to have a really small io but no one seems to care about that on these cameras.

4. Are there any good resources on how io interacts with focal length and the distance to the subject matter?
