  • Patent number: 9723483
    Abstract: A mobile electronic device according to an embodiment has an identifier, a determiner, and a permitter. The identifier identifies the operating system of a mobile terminal to which its own device is connected and determines whether the identified operating system is a prescribed operating system. If the identifier determines that the identified operating system is the prescribed operating system, the determiner performs processing to determine whether or not authentication data held in its own device and authentication data held in an authentication data holding device that can communicate via a network match. If the determiner determines that there is a match, the permitter permits data processing using processing data held in a processing data holding device that can communicate via the network.

  • Publication number: 20160314388
    Abstract: A data processing device for IC card issuance includes a common data acquisition unit, an individual data acquisition unit, a memory, a data interpretation unit, a data conversion unit and an issuance data generation unit. The memory stores multiple pieces of format information that indicate data formats for respective types of individual data. The data interpretation unit determines a data format of the individual data that is acquired by the individual data acquisition unit based on the format information stored in the storage unit. The data conversion unit converts the individual data acquired by the individual data acquisition unit into a predetermined data format according to the data format determined by the data interpretation unit. The issuance data generation unit generates issuance data for issuing an IC card based on the individual data in the predetermined data format and common data acquired by the common data acquisition unit.

  • Patent number: 9256280
    Abstract: An electronic camera and method of operating an electronic camera which detects whether an external device such as a personal computer is properly connected to the camera and in a state which permits communication. The camera monitors a data terminal ready (DTR) signal of an RS-232 connection in order to determine that the external device is properly connected and in a state which permits communication. Once the proper connection is detected, the camera can either transmit or receive images and/or audio from the external device. Accordingly, a specific switch which places the camera in a communication mode can be eliminated. Further, a single switch may be utilized for both controlling whether the camera records or plays images when there is no device connected, and which controls whether the camera transmits or receives images and/or audio when an external device is determined to be connected.

  • Patent number: 7432952
    Abstract: A digital electronic camera which can accept various types of input/output cards or memory cards. When an I/O card is inserted into and connected with the camera, a processor within the camera determines the type of I/O card which has been connected by reading a memory location within the card. A control program which is contained in the I/O card is transferred to a memory within the camera in order for the camera to perform I/O functions which correspond to the type of the inserted card. Different types of I/O cards which may be used include a modem card, a LAN card, a SCSI card, or an ISDN interface. Image signals and audio signals are transmitted between the camera and an external processor, information describing the status of the camera is transmitted from the camera to the external processor, and commands to control the camera are transmitted to the camera from the external processor.
