  • Patent number: 6348972
    Abstract: A network print system includes at least one host and plural printers, and a communication network that connects the host and the printers. In each printer, a host is selected in which print data is generated, a request is made to the host to be transmitted the print data, and a document is printed based on the received print data. In the host, plural print data is stored, and respective owners of the plural print data are set on the basis of the identification data allotted per each user. Also, in the host, a determination is made as to whether a person who has requested the print data to be transmitted is the owner of the print data, and if so, the print data is transmitted to the printer.

  • Patent number: 6055067
    Abstract: In a multifunction image processing apparatus, a CPU uses a QNT/PM, as used for copying and editing, to store image data received by a facsimile controller during a time zone when the apparatus is not used for other than facsimile reception, as in the night. In initiating an operation other than facsimile reception, such as copying, the CPU allows the image data retained in the QNT/PM to be printed out by a laser printer. In the event of failure to print, or in the case of confidential data, the image data is stored/retained in a file memory in a facsimile controller.

  • Patent number: 6016386
    Abstract: In a composite digital copying machine of a plain paper copying machine, a printer, and a facsimile apparatus, when the machine is operated as a printer for printing out document data of codes created by a wordprocessor, an internally obtained data image is compressed and stored, as image data, in a hard disk simultaneously with print processing of the data. When this printout is to be copied later, the original image data is searched or retrieved to be printed without scanning the printout.

  • Patent number: 5999707
    Abstract: A network print system includes a host having the function to generate print data, a printer that processes printing on the basis of a specified print data, and a communication network that connect the printer and the host so that they can communicate with each other. The printer of the network print system carries out send request of desired print data to the host, and receives print data corresponding to the send request, and thereby executes print processing in accordance with the print data. Further, the host includes a memory to store the print data, and sends the print data stored in the memory to the printer that has carried out a send request of print data when the send request of the print data is carried out in the printer through the communication network.

  • Patent number: 5627650
    Abstract: An image forming apparatus has a function for recognizing a sorting mode, a function of recognizing a copy specification, a function of storing an original image, and a function of rotating this stored image. The apparatus has a function of alternately outputting sets of copy sheets in an angular difference of about 90.degree. in accordance with the copy specifications. An operator can discriminate the sets of copy sheets from each other using landscape and portrait copy sheets without using a mechanical sorter mechanism. When a binding unit is added to this image forming apparatus, the apparatus has a function of reversing the reading order of the pages of each set to reproduce the images and alternately binding and outputting the copy sheets at an angular interval of about 90.degree. in units of sets.

  • Patent number: 5548666
    Abstract: An apparatus for printing an image which is stored on an optical disk is read by a scanner. A plurality of images read out from the optical disk are edited to form an abstract image on the basis of a predetermined unit (e.g., one page), and code data (i.e., retrieval data) is added to the abstract image. The resultant image, including both the abstract image and the code data, is printed on a sheet. The code data is extracted from the printed image, and desired images are retrieved from the optical disk on the basis of the code data.
