  • Patent number: 11394843
    Abstract: In a multifunction peripheral, image data generated by a scanner section is transferred to an image processor via a data bus. If it is determined that an image processing and another image processing are not executed in parallel, the transfer rate of image data is set to a first transfer rate, whereas if it is determined that the image processing and the other image processing are executed in parallel, one of a plurality of different transfer rates lower than the first transfer rate is selected based on a result of determination of whether or not settings associated with the image processing are predetermined settings and a result of determination of whether or not settings associated with the other image processing are other predetermined settings, and the transfer rate of image data is set to the selected one.

  • Patent number: 11165924
    Abstract: An image processing apparatus that is capable of executing a scan image process and another image process in parallel without reducing a scanning speed. A scanner scans an image of a document and generates image data. An image processor applies an image process to image data. A scanner controller transfers image data to the image processor from the scanner through a data bus. A controller determines whether a first image process applied to the scanned image data is executed in parallel with a second image process and determines whether a setting about the first image process is a predetermined setting. The controller sets a transfer speed to a first speed when the image processes are not executed in parallel and sets the transfer speed to a lower second speed when the image processes are executed in parallel and when the setting about the first image process is the predetermined setting.
