  • Publication number: 20210006747
    Abstract: An object of one embodiment of the present disclosure is to provide a product with a high added value to a user by preventing an erroneous character string from being combined in a case where a voice before and after an image selected from within a moving image is a mixed voice. One embodiment of the present disclosure is an image processing apparatus including: a selection unit configured to select, from a moving image including a plurality of frames, a part of the moving image; an extraction unit configured to extract a voice during a predetermined time corresponding to the selected part in the moving image; and a combination unit configured to combine a character string based on a voice extracted by the extraction unit, with the part of the moving image selected by the selection unit or a frame among frames corresponding to the part.

  • Publication number: 20210006762
    Abstract: An object of one embodiment of the present disclosure is to provide a product with a high added value to a user by preventing an unnatural character string from being combined, combination of no character string, and the like in a case where there is no voice or almost no voice before or after an image selected from within a moving image. One embodiment of the present disclosure is an image processing apparatus including: a selection unit configured to select, from a moving image including a plurality of frames, a part of the moving image; an extraction unit configured to extract a voice during a predetermined time corresponding to the selected part in the moving image; and a combination unit configured to combine a character string based on a voice extracted by the extraction unit, with the part of the moving image selected by the selection unit.

  • Patent number: 10225439
    Abstract: An image printing apparatus can print an image in which graininess is suppressed while using a color material of light blue. To achieve this, the color material of light blue satisfies the following condition. ?LB?(?LC??LB)>0 and ?LB?(?LM??LB)>0 Here, ?LC represents a difference in lightness between cyan ink and a blank area, ?LM represents a difference in lightness between magenta ink and the blank area, and ?LB represents a difference in lightness between light blue ink and the blank area. Further, the color material of light blue satisfies the following condition. hC+(h(C+M)?hC)/2?hB?hM?(hM?h(C+M))/2 Here, hC represents a hue of the cyan ink, hM represents a hue of the magenta ink, h(C+M) represents a hue of the image printed with the cyan ink and the magenta ink in the same amount, and hB represents a hue of the light blue ink.

  • Patent number: 9962950
    Abstract: Driving orders of driving blocks are controlled with regard to each of multiple types of ink so that landing positions of ink from the driving blocks differ in multiple scans, and in the mask patterns used, there is a relatively small number of superimposed pixels among pixels regarding which a large number of discharge permitted has been stipulated regarding a mask pattern corresponding to one type of ink and one scan and pixels regarding which a large number of discharge permitted has been stipulated regarding a mask pattern corresponding to another type of ink and the one scan.

  • Patent number: 9855774
    Abstract: A recording apparatus includes a recording head including a plurality of recording elements arranged in a predetermined direction, and a determination unit configured to determine a first mode in which a specified image is recorded or a second mode in which a pattern is recorded in each of recording scannings in forward and backward directions to form an adjustment pattern for adjusting a recording position in the intersecting direction of the recording head, and the recording position of the recording head in accordance with the formed adjustment pattern is adjusted, in which a driving unit controls driving of the recording elements in a manner that a correspondence relationship between positions in the predetermined direction and the intersecting direction among a plurality of dots that form the same column is varied or is the same in the recording scannings in the forward and backward directions in accordance with the determined mode.

  • Patent number: 9844960
    Abstract: The driving order of driving blocks is controlled so that ink landing positions from driving blocks differ from each other in multiple scans. Recording data is generated so that, of pixels where ink is discharged in one scan, the number of pixels adjacent at both sides in the scanning direction to pixels where ink is discharged in another scan is greater than the number of pixels not adjacent at both sides in the scanning direction to pixels where ink is discharged the other scan.
