  • Publication number: 20190304508
    Abstract: Upon capture of video data for a match of a sport at a first time, an apparatus performs detection of event information from the captured video data during a first time-period starting from the first time, where the event information includes information identifying an occurrence timing of an event that occurs in the match of the sport, an event type of the event, and an occurrence position of the event. The apparatus reproduces the video data, on a display screen, with a delay by a second time-period obtained by adding a third time-period longer than or equal to a predetermined time-period to the first time-period, and, upon detection of the event information, continues displaying the event type and the occurrence position of the event, for the predetermined time-period, from a timing that is the predetermined time before the occurrence timing of the event within the reproduced video data.

  • Publication number: 20190248615
    Abstract: To enable a bunch of sheets to be reliably discharged to a stack tray, also in the case where weight of the bunch of sheets formed on a processing tray is large, a post-processing control section receives information on an ink discharge amount, the number of sheets, sheet type, and printing mode (two-side/one-side) in printing on sheets from a main body control section of an image forming unit A, in forming a bunch of sheets on the processing tray. The control section thereby recognizes weight of a bunch of sheets formed on the processing tray, and when the section determines that the weight is heavier than predetermined weight, decreases a rotation velocity of a drive motor of a sheet bunch transport means, or increases a current amount applied to the drive motor. By this means, torque of the motor is increased, and the bunch of sheets is reliably discharged to the first stack tray.

  • Publication number: 20190248168
    Abstract: To enable a bunch of sheets to be reliably discharged to a stack tray, also in the case where weight of the bunch of sheets formed on a processing tray is large, upon receiving a printing command, a main body control section checks information on an ink discharge amount in printing on a sheet, the number of sheets, sheet type and printing mode (two-side/one-side). By this means, the section recognizes weight of the bunch of sheets formed on the processing tray, and when determining that the weight is heavier than predetermined weight, deceases an upper limit value of the number of sheets of a bunch of sheets formed at a time to report to a user.

  • Patent number: 9791093
    Abstract: To realize a mechanism that can support an article at a desired position in such a way as to be able to move the article, with a thin, simple configuration. A load support mechanism 1 includes a fixed support section 2, which includes a fixed cam 8; a movable support section 3, which receives a load and can move vertically; a horizontal cam groove 13, which is provided in the movable support section; a cam follower member 15, which can move horizontally along the cam groove; a first spring 4, which is mounted between the fixed support section and the movable support section to support a load; and a second spring 18, which pushes the cam follower member horizontally and presses the cam follower member against a fixed cam surface 9 of the fixed cam. A reaction force of the fixed cam against the cam follower contains a vertical component depending on a height position of the movable support section, and the vertical component assists or reduces the spring's force to push up the load.

  • Patent number: 9582023
    Abstract: Provided is an operation handle mechanism with which a handle can be conveniently operated to move a movable section, thereby ensuring smooth operation and movement at any time regardless of an operation position of the handle. An operation handle section 121 includes a handle lever 67, which is used to operate movement of a support frame section 23 capable of moving up and down, and left and right transmission rods 123a and 123b, which are joined to the handle lever. The transmission rods can only move a predetermined distance in a movement direction thereof relative to the support frame section, and start to move together with the support frame section after going beyond that distance.

  • Publication number: 20160245349
    Abstract: The present invention is to provide a brake mechanism that prevents a significant decrease in braking force, even after years of being used with a repeat of braking and cancellation by a brake portion and a to-be-braked portion. A brake device 122 includes brake pads 145a, 145b, 146a, and 146b, which engage with or depart from a side of a first brake rail, on tips of upper and lower pairs of brake arms 141a, 141b, 142a, and 142b, which are provided in a rotatable manner across the first brake rail 31. When the brake pads 145a, 145b, 146a, and 146b are pressed against the brake rail 31, the brake pads are disposed in such a way as to be inclined so that a gap 304 emerges on a base end portion 302's side that is close to a fulcrum 144a's side.

  • Publication number: 20150102188
    Abstract: Provided is a braking mechanism that can control, when a braking part and a braked part can be relatively moved from a braked state, release of a braking force based on a direction in which the braking part and the braked part are supposed to move. A brake device 122 includes, at tips of brake arms 141a, 141b, 142a, and 142b that are paired in an up-down direction and are provided in such a way as to freely rotate across a first brake rail 31, brake pads 145a, 145b, 146a, and 146b, which engage with a side surface of the first brake rail or cancel the engagement. As a handle lever 67 is operated to move transmission rods 123a and 123b in a direction in which a support frame section 23 is supposed to move, connection plates 132a and 132b rotate, and a brake arm on a movement-direction side thereof is rotated. As a result, the brake pads are separated from the side surface of the first brake rail, and the braking is canceled.
