  • Publication number: 20190302639
    Abstract: A controller which causes a light emitting element to continuously perform minute emission for a plurality of dots in a level in which toner is not attached to a non-image section on an image bearing member is provided. The controller controls a first driving current for an image section and controls a second driving current used to perform the minute emission by the light emitting element in the non-image section several times in one job. In the image section, a driving current obtained by adding the first driving current to the second driving current is supplied so that the light emitting element emits light.

  • Patent number: 10417808
    Abstract: An image processing system is provided, including an accepting unit, an acquisition unit, a measuring unit, and an output unit. The accepting unit accepts the setting of two coordinates in a stereoscopic image of a subject displayed on a stereoscopic image display device. The acquisition unit acquires volume data coordinates that are coordinates corresponding to stereoscopic image coordinates indicating the accepted coordinates. The measuring unit executes a measuring process of measuring the distance between the two coordinates accepted by the accepting unit, based on the volume data coordinates acquired by the acquisition unit. The output unit outputs a result of measurement by the measuring unit.

  • Publication number: 20190272106
    Abstract: Communicating data with a medium is provided. A cache is provided for storing target data of a file identified by an access request from an application of a host. The cache is divided into a read cache, a write cache, and an index cache. Responsive to receiving the access request: the medium is loaded onto a drive using a file system; target data is stored to the write cache and to the read cache; and the index file stored in the index cache is updated to reflect position metadata about the target data stored in the write cache. Responsive to initiating unloading of the medium from the drive: the updated index file stored in the index cache is written to the index partition of the medium; and the target data stored in the write cache is written onto a data partition of the medium without using the file system.
