  • Publication number: 20050168765
    Abstract: There is described an image-processing apparatus that is provided with a receiving section to receive jobs, each of which includes image data; an arithmetic calculating section to convert the image data to print data for every job; a storage section to store the jobs received by the receiving section and the print data converted by the arithmetic calculating section for every job; an outputting section to output the print data to a printing section for every job; and a controlling section to control a receiving processing applied for the jobs in the receiving section, a conversion processing applied for each of the jobs in the arithmetic calculating section and an output processing applied for each of the jobs in the outputting section. Accordingly, the image-processing apparatus can separately control a receiving state of each of the jobs, a converting state of each of the jobs and an outputting state of each of the jobs.

  • Publication number: 20020154332
    Abstract: The printing system includes a service server system, from which data is downloaded, and a printer client downloads the data and conducts image output based on the data. In the printing system, the service server system acquires information to specify the printer client from the printer client itself that requests access to the service server system. The service server system specifies abstract data, allowed to be transmitted to the printer client, in accordance with a copyright protection level and the printer client downloads the abstract data specified by the service server system to conduct image output.

  • Patent number: 4374385
    Abstract: A method of forming a gradated image by using a thermal printer wherein a thermal head having a plurality of lined-up heating elements scans in one direction and the surface of thermal paper is fed in a secondary scanning direction intermittently and synchronously with the scanning movement of the thermal head. The method comprising the steps of setting a feed amount of the thermal paper to a level which is not greater than 1/2 of the length of arrangement of the heating elements, advancing the thermal paper to the position where the sections formed between the preceding printing sections become the subsequent printing sections.
