Daisuke Sakiyama has filed for patents to protect the following inventions. This listing includes patent applications that are pending as well as patents that have already been granted by the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO).
Abstract: A data processing apparatus includes an image reader for reading an original, a receiver capable of receiving an external job transmitted from an outside, a transmitter capable of transmitting image data of the original read by the image reader as a scanning job to an outside, a print device for printing data of the external job received by the receiver, one or a plurality of compressing/expanding devices for compressing the image data of the scanning job or the data of the external job and expanding the compressed data, and a controller. The controller controls execution of processing of the external job and the scanning job by the compressing/expanding devices in accordance with execution status of the external job in cases where a request for processing the data of the external job by the compressing/expanding devices and a request for processing the data of the scanning job by the compressing/expanding devices overlap.
Abstract: In addition to a data processing memory that processes data for an input print job, the present invention includes a mounting unit that enables mounting of an expansion memory used for data storage, as well as a detection unit that detects whether or not an expansion memory is mounted to the mounting unit. Where the job is one in which the data therefor is to be output multiple times, the controller selects the storage destination memory for the data used for output of the second copy onward in accordance with whether or not an expansion memory is mounted, and stores the data in the selected storage destination memory. The output unit reads out the data from the selected storage destination memory and performs output of the second copy onward.

Abstract: A data processing apparatus includes an input portion, an output portion, a plurality of compressing/expanding devices which compress data-to-be-outputted inputted from the input portion and expand compressed data-to-be-outputted, a file memory which stores the data-to-be-outputted compressed by some or all of the plurality of compressing/expanding devices, a data discrimination portion which discriminates whether the data-to-be-outputted inputted from the input portion is data including a small amount of information or a large amount of information, and a transfer controller. In cases where it is discriminated by the data discrimination portion that the data-to-be-outputted is data including a small amount of information, the transfer controller transfers the data-to-be-outputted to the output portion through the plurality of compressing/expanding devices operating in parallel.
