  • Patent number: 8303486
    Abstract: A capsule-type endoscope system includes plural receivers, plural mounting spots for mounting the receivers and an information processing apparatus connected to the receivers via the mounting spots. Each receiver wirelessly receives image data from a capsule-type endoscope that images inside of an examinee's body; stores examinee identification information and the received image data; and displays the examinee identification information or examinee information associated therewith. The information processing apparatus receives the examinee identification information from each receiver via the mounting spot and manages its correlation with receiver identification information or mounting spot identification information. The image data is transmitted via the mounting spot to the information processing apparatus to be stored therein.

  • Patent number: 8300794
    Abstract: The same number is redundantly set as the extension number associated to a fourth telephone number in different data tables associated to different second telephone numbers. For this reason, it is possible to maintain outstanding scalability of the system in a situation where the total number of settable numbers is limited. Further, even if an outgoing call is made to a caller side terminal from a lost receiver side terminal using the call register, the receiver number is recognized to be either an extension number associated to a fourth telephone number or an extension number associated to a fifth telephone number, and an instruction to disconnect a first call is sent to the call controller. As a result, the above-mentioned outgoing call (first call) from the lost receiver side terminal is disconnected, thereby making it possible to fully ensure security when a terminal is lost.
