Abstract

An image forming apparatus records identification information of an external memory and identification information of a scan job as a log when the external memory is attached to start the scan job. When the external memory is removed in the middle of the scan job, scan data is temporarily saved together with the identification information of the job. When the removed external memory is attached, for example, in a ready state, log data is referred to determine whether the external memory is that removed in the middle of the job and whether the scan data associated with the external memory is saved. When it is determined that the scan data is saved, the scan data is saved in the external memory.

Abstract

An optical scanning device includes a light emitter, a driver, and a signal outputter. The light emitter emits a laser beam. The driver operates, depending on a signal inputted thereto, in a master state in which the driver performs initialization by reading data from a storage device or in a slave state in which the driver drives the light emitter according to an operation mode corresponding to the signal. The signal outputter outputs the signal to the driver. For the initialization of the driver, the signal outputter outputs a signal for setting the driver to the slave state and setting the operation mode to a specific operation mode. The driver performs the initialization based on a beam intensity of the laser beam emitted from the light emitter driven according to the operation mode based on the signal outputted from the signal outputter.

Abstract

An optical scanning unit steers a light beam emitted from a laser diode in the main scanning direction by a polygon mirror. The laser diode, a collimator lens, an aperture, a first lens, the polygon mirror, and a condensing lens are sequentially placed in the optical system of the optical scanning unit. The laser diode emits a light beam in which divergent angles in intersecting two directions are different from each other. The direction in which the light beam divergent angle is large is aligned with the sub-scanning direction, and the direction in which the light beam divergent angle is small is aligned with the main scanning direction. The first lens has a first function to condense a beam in the sub-scanning direction and a second function to diffuse a beam in the main scanning direction.

Abstract

In an information processing system, an information processing apparatus saves mobile address book data of a mobile terminal in a temporary database, and refers to the mobile address book data to execute an image transmission job. When user authentication is not performed to the mobile terminal after the mobile address book data has been referenced, the temporary database is deleted at a first timing at which a reset key is operated on an image transmission screen, a second timing at which the image transmission screen transitions from the image transmission screen transitions to another screen, or a third timing after a predetermined time has elapsed. When the user authentication is performed, the temporary database is deleted at a timing of logging out by an explicit logout operation or an automatic logout due to elapse of a time.

Abstract

Provided is a display device with pixel circuits, each having a light-emitting element, a drive transistor, a first compensation transistor connected to a control terminal of the drive transistor at a first conductive terminal, an intermediate node at a second conductive terminal, and a scanning line at a control terminal, a second compensation transistor connected to the intermediate node at a first conductive terminal, a conductive terminal of the drive transistor at a second conductive terminal, and the scanning line at a control terminal, and a capacitor connected to the intermediate node at a first electrode and a control line at a second electrode. The driver circuit changes a potential of the scanning line from on to off level and also changes a potential of the control line from a second level to a first level, in an opposite direction to the change in the potential of the scanning line, at a time corresponding to the change in the potential of the scanning line. Thus, the display device renders it possible to prevent display screen flickering during low-frequency drive.

Abstract

A method of encoding video data by a device is provided. Transform coefficient values associated with a chroma coding block are received. The chroma coding block is one of chroma coding blocks resulting from partitioning a chroma coding tree block and misaligned with a luma coding tree block corresponding to the chroma coding tree block and partitioned into luma coding blocks which are organized into quantization groups such that luma quantization parameters are determined for the luma coding tree block. One of the luma quantization parameters that is mapped to the chroma coding block is identified. A predictive quantization parameter is derived by using a value derived from the identified luma quantization parameter. A chroma quantization parameter is determined by adding a delta quantization parameter associated with each of the chroma coding blocks to the predictive quantization parameter. Level values are generated based on the determined chroma quantization parameter.

Abstract

A display device includes: a plurality of scanning lines; a plurality of data lines; a plurality of light-emission control lines; a plurality of pixel circuits each including a light-emitting element; a scanning line drive circuit that drives the scanning lines based on a first clock signal; a data line drive circuit that drives the data lines; a light-emission control line drive circuit that drives the light-emission control lines based on a second clock signal; and a display control circuit that outputs at least the first and second clock signals. The display control circuit classifies a frame period into a scanning period and a pause period, and during the pause period, the display control circuit stops the first clock signal and makes a frequency of the second clock signal lower than that during the scanning period. This further reduces the power consumption of the display device that performs low-frequency driving.

Abstract

A moving image decoding method is provided for generating a prediction image using an intra-frame prediction mode. The moving image decoding method includes deriving a first parameter and a second parameter by using a sampled luminance value down-sampled according to a chrominance format and the intra-frame prediction mode; and deriving the prediction image by using the first parameter and the second parameter, wherein: the first parameter is derived by: deriving a logarithmic value of a luminance difference value, deriving a first value by right-shifting a second value related to the luminance difference value by the logarithmic value, and using a third value acquired by multiplying a fourth value by a chrominance difference value, wherein the fourth value is determined from a reference table by using the first value, and the second parameter is derived by using the first parameter.

Abstract

An image decoding apparatus including a header decoder configured to decode, from coded data, a flag indicating whether dependent quantization is enabled and a flag prohibiting transform skip residual quantization, and a TU decoder configured to decode a transform coefficient in a TU block in an RRC mode in which a LAST position is coded, the LAST position corresponding to a decoding start position for the transform coefficient, or a TSRC mode in which the LAST position is not coded. The TU decoder performs dependent quantization in the RRC mode in a case that the transform coefficient for transform skip is decoded in the TSRC mode, and does not perform dependent quantization in the RRC mode in a case that the transform coefficient for transform skip is decoded in the RRC mode.

Abstract

A thin-film transistor layer includes: a first wiring layer; a first planarization film; a second wiring layer; and a second planarization film, all of which are stacked on top of another in a stated order. The first planarization film and the second planarization film include a first slit shaped into a frame, provided between the display region and the first dam wall, and penetrating the first planarization film and the second planarization film. In the first slit, a first frame wire and a second frame wire have respective edge portions facing each other and covered with a protective film made of an inorganic insulating film included in the thin-film transistor layer.
