  • Patent number: 10687159
    Abstract: In a noise reduction device that generates and outputs a control sound signal for reducing noise, an internal loop control unit controls an internal loop in which a pre-output control sound signal that is acquired from a control sound output unit before output to a speaker is input to a sound receiver. A measurement unit measures an input level of a microphone sound signal and an input level of the pre-output control sound signal that has been input to the sound receiver in the internal loop. A fault detector uses the input level of the microphone sound signal and the input level of the pre-output control sound signal measured by the measurement unit to detect a fault in any one of the microphone, the sound receiver, the speaker, and the control sound output unit. A transmitter sends a result of fault detection performed by the fault detector to a management device.

  • Publication number: 20200101757
    Abstract: A recording method includes a step of applying a first ink to a recording medium; and a step of recording an image on the recording medium by applying a second ink so that the second ink at least partially overlaps a region to which the first ink has been applied. The first ink is an aqueous ink containing a silver particle. The second ink is an aqueous ink containing a coloring material. The recording medium has an ink receiving layer that contains a halide ion selected from the group consisting of a bromide ion and an iodide ion. The ink receiving layer has a halide ion content (mmol/m2) of 0.1 mmol/m2 or more to 0.8 mmol/m2 or less.

  • Publication number: 20200098347
    Abstract: In the noise reduction device, the sound receiver receives a noise signal acquired from the microphone. The sound source input unit receives an input of a sound source signal from a sound source. The sound adjuster changes the intensity of the sound source signal relative to the intensity of the noise signal. The control sound generator generates a control sound signal that reduces the noise signal. The control unit controls the change of the intensity of the sound source signal and the generation of the control sound signal. The sound output outputs the control sound signal to the speaker. The sound output outputs to the speaker the sound source signal at the intensity changed by the sound adjuster.
