  • Patent number: 11451833
    Abstract: The present technology relates to an encoding device, an encoding method, a decoding device, and a decoding method that make it possible to accurately restore an image. The encoding device generates a filter image by performing, on a decoded image locally decoded, filter processing of applying a prediction equation including a second-order or higher higher-order term and performing a product-sum calculation of predetermined tap coefficients and pixels of the decoded image. Moreover, the encoding device encodes an original image by using the filter image. The decoding device decodes coded data included in an encoded bit stream by using a filter image, to generate a decoded image. Moreover, the decoding device generates the filter image by performing, on the decoded image, filter processing of applying a prediction equation. The present technology can be applied to a case where encoding and decoding of an image are performed.

  • Publication number: 20210343473
    Abstract: A manufacturing method of a reactor includes: a coil mold step of forming a coil mold in which a first resin is molded to cover at least part of a coil; and a main body mold step of forming a main body mold in which a second resin is molded to cover at least part of an assembly body in which the coil, the coil mold, two I-cores, and an O-core surrounding the coil and the coil mold are assembled. In the coil mold step, a gap plate configured to fill a gap between positions where the two I-cores are placed is formed by molding with the first resin. In the main body mold step, gap plates each configured to fill a gap between the O-core and a corresponding one of the I-cores are formed by molding with the second resin.

  • Patent number: 8204414
    Abstract: A fastening structure which fixes a doctor blade to a holder is provided, which includes a cylindrical portion provided on one surface of the holder with which a doctor blade is overlapped, a through hole having an inner diameter larger than an outer diameter of the cylindrical portion and penetrating through the doctor blade. In the fastening structure, while the cylindrical portion is inserted through the through hole with a gap between an outer circumference of the cylindrical portion and an inner circumference of the through hole, an end portion of the cylindrical portion is pressed to be expanded in an outer circumferential direction and then bent towards the doctor blade, to thereby fix the doctor blade to the holder by supporting it between the end portion and the one surface of the holder.

  • Patent number: 7970324
    Abstract: A developer carrier is provided in a rotatable manner. A layer-thickness control member makes a layer thickness of a developer carried on the developer carrier uniform. An accelerated agglomeration degree of the developer is equal to or less than 40%. The layer-thickness control member is formed with a blade. An angle between a rolling direction of the blade and a rotating direction of the developer carrier is set to 5 degrees to 80 degrees.
