  • Publication number: 20050213935
    Abstract: An edit device performs editing based on image data L_IM, generates an edit decision list L_EDL indicating that content and transmits this to a video recording system. In the edit decision list L_EDL, as an instance number of UMID, “FF FF FF” is stored. The video recording system rewrites the instance number IN_N in UMID of the edit decision list L_EDL from “FF FF FF” to “00 00 00” to generate an edit decision list H_EDL.

  • Publication number: 20050198018
    Abstract: A clip without UMID is transmitted to a disc drive from an editing device. The disc drive generates the UMID and NRT with respect to the transmitted clip, and stores the UMID in association with the NRT. The editing device edits the NRT, and transmits the NRT that is edition results to the disc drive. The disc drive overwrites the NRT that has been transmitted from the editing device on the generated NRT, and stores the NRT in association with the clip with the UMID. The present invention can be applied to a disc recording and reproducing device.

  • Patent number: 4656992
    Abstract: A by-pass control system for an internal combustion engine provided with a mechanical supercharger arranged in an intake pipe of the engine. The supercharger is connected to a crankshaft by means of a clutch operated in accordance with the engine load as well as the engine speed. A by-pass is arranged so as to by-pass the supercharger, on which by-pass a by-pass control valve is arranged. The by-pass control valve is operated in accordance with the engine speed, so that it is opened during an engine low load and high speed condition. The supercharger is located downstream of the throttle valve, while the by-pass is, on its downstream end, connected to the intake pipe downstream of the throttle valve and upstream of the supercharger.

  • Patent number: 4596225
    Abstract: A by-pass control system for an internal combustion engine provided with a mechanical supercharger arranged in an intake pipe of the engine. The supercharger is connected to a crankshaft by means of a clutch operated in accordance with the engine load as well as the engine speed. A system is provided for maintaining the clutch disengaged irrespective of the engine load and engine speed when the engine is cranking. The load applied to a starter is decreased during the cranking operating due to the positive disconnection of the supercharger from the crankshaft, so that the engine can be easily started.

  • Patent number: 4561390
    Abstract: An apparatus for controlling valve timing in an internal-combustion engine. The apparatus includes a pair of telescoping sleeve members. One of the sleeve members is connected to the camshaft of the engine with a bolt, and the other sleeve member is connected to a timing pulley which is connected to the crankshaft of the engine. Each of the sleeve members has at least one slit which is located adjacent to a slit on the other sleeve member. The adjacent slits are angled relative to each other. Abutment rollers are arranged in the slits and are mounted on an axially movable member. The movable member is connected via a screw mechanism to a rotary motor. The rotational movement of the output shaft of the motor is changed to a linear movement of the support member, thereby causing the support member to move, which movement, in turn, causes the generation of angular displacement between the sleeve members so that variable valve-timing is obtained.
