  • Patent number: 11050891
    Abstract: A data processing system includes a unit which executes predetermined data processing by linking first and second apparatuses, a communication control unit which establishes and maintains a communication connection between the apparatuses even if the connection is not in a predetermined operation state capable of executing data processing, a pairing unit which causes the apparatuses to transition to a pairing state, and a control unit which, if the apparatuses' transition to the pairing state is not in a predetermined operation state, causes transition to the operation state by transmitting predetermined signals between the apparatuses via the communication control unit. The execution unit causes the apparatuses to transition to a pairing state, and then executes data processing by linking them. The communication control unit judges whether to establish a communication connection between the apparatuses by referencing pairing states between them, and of a combination with another first or second apparatus.

  • Patent number: 9723221
    Abstract: An imaging device shoots a common subject in synchronization with other imaging devices. The imaging device includes a processor. The processor receives states of the other imaging devices, compare an own state of the imaging device with the received states of the other imaging devices, and determine whether the imaging device functions as a main device or a subordinate device for setting an imaging condition. When the processor determines that the imaging device functions as the main device, the processor sends imaging information acquired or determined by the imaging device for shooting the common subject to the subordinate devices. When the processor determines that the imaging device functions as the subordinate device, the processor sets the imaging condition in the imaging device based on the imaging information received from the main device.
