  • Patent number: 10942477
    Abstract: An image forming apparatus includes a fixing unit, an image forming unit, and a controller. The controller is configured to receive image data corresponding to a target image to be formed on a sheet, convert the received image data to modified image data corresponding to a modified image that includes the target image and an added margin on at least one side of the target image in a sheet width direction side, control the image forming unit to form the modified image based on the modified image data, and cause the sheet to be conveyed to the image forming unit such that a positioning of the sheet in the sheet width direction overlaps with the target so that a fixing portion of the fixing unit overlaps with the target image in the modified image formed on the sheet.

  • Patent number: 10511739
    Abstract: According to one embodiment, an image processing apparatus includes an input unit and a control unit. The input unit accepts a reference point of scaling for enlarging or reducing image data. The control unit performs inversion for inverting the image data according to the reference point in either or both of a main scanning direction and a sub scanning direction. The control unit performs scaling on the inverted image data generated by performing the inversion to generate scaled image data. The control unit performs inversion on the scaled image data again to generate non-inverted scaled image data.

  • Patent number: 7929846
    Abstract: A visual presenter includes a camera support arm including a pivot support arm pivotally supported on a base and having an interior cavity and a slide support arm which is inserted into the interior cavity of the pivot support arm so as to be slidable and having a distal end on which the image pickup camera is mounted. When the pivot support arm is caused to pivot from a storage location where the camera support arm lies to a setup location where the camera support arm stands up, the slide support arm is pushed out of the pivot support arm by the sliding mechanism so that the image pickup camera is set up at a predetermined location. When the pivot support arm is caused to pivot from the setup location to the storage location, the slide support arm is brought into the pivot support arm by the sliding mechanism.
