【0021】次に本発明の画像出力装置のインクジェット記録システム及び印字データ処理パーツについて説明するが、これらは本発明の範囲を限定するものではない。 [0021] Next, the ink jet recording system and a print data processing part of the image output apparatus of the present invention will be described, but these are not intended to limit the scope of the present invention.

【0022】図5は、本発明のインクジェット記録システム及び印字データ処理パーツの構成図である。 FIG. 5 is a schematic drawing of an inkjet recording system and the print data processing part of the present invention.

【0023】画像データ5−6は、情報発信元からWE [0023] The image data 5-6, WE from the information source
Bや無線(FM信号)を通じて発信される。 Originating B or through a wireless (FM signal). この信号を本発明の画像出力装置内に設置されたプリンタキャッシュメモリ5−5により印字信号として画像出力装置に認識させる。 The signal the printer cache memory 5-5, which is installed in the image output device of the present invention to recognize the image output apparatus as a printing signal. 次にこと信号によりインクジェットプリントヘッドが記録紙1−2に印字記録を行う。 By then it signals the inkjet printhead for printing recording sheet 1-2. インクジェットプリントヘッドは、キャリッジガイド5−2により双方向にオンキャリッジ方式インクジェットプリンタヘッド5−1が動くタイプであったり、記録紙1−2と対向する方向に設置したマルチラインインクジェットプリンタヘッド5−3である場合があるが、画像印字面表示領域の大きさや使用場所、コストを考慮して選択される。 Inkjet printhead, multi-line ink jet printer head was set or of a type on-carriage type ink jet printer head 5-1 moved bidirectionally by a carriage guide 5-2, in a direction opposite to the recording paper 1-2 5-3 While it may be the size and place of use of the image printing surface display area is selected in view of the cost.
なお、マルチラインインクジェットプリンタヘッドを採用した場合は、オンキャリッジ方式インクジェットプリンタヘッドとは異なり、インク供給タンク5−4は別に設ける必要がある。 In the case of adopting the multi-line ink jet printer head, unlike the on-carriage type ink jet printer head, an ink supply tank 5-4 it is required to be provided separately.

【0024】本発明の画像出力装置の印字方式は、インクジェット記録方式である為、専用に開発されたインクジェット専用紙(ロールタイプ)の使用が好ましい。 The printing method of the image output apparatus of the present invention, since an ink jet recording method is preferably used for inkjet paper was developed only (roll type). 例えば、感熱ロール紙などは発色性が悪く所望な色が再現できない、印字滲み等が発生する等の問題が生じる。 For example, such thermal roll paper can not reproduce the desired color poor coloring property, problems such as printing bleeding or the like occurs is caused. 本装置に好適に使用可能な記録紙を例示すると、PM写真用紙ロールタイプ、PMマット紙、フォトプリントロール紙2 ロールタイプ(何れもセイコーエプソン株式会社の商品)等が上げられる。 Preferred examples of the usable recording paper to the apparatus, PM photographic paper roll type, PM mat paper, photo print roll paper 2 role types (both of Seiko Epson Corporation product) and the like.

【0025】本発明による画像出力装置は、屋内外を問わず不特定多数が視覚的に共有可能な静止画像を出力することを目的とする。 The image output apparatus according to the present invention, an unspecified number regardless of indoor and outdoor is intended to output a still image visual sharable. この為には、画像印字面表示領域は透明であり、装置内部の記録紙に印字された印刷物が視認可能であることが必要となる。 Therefore, the image printed surface display region is transparent, it is necessary printed material printed on the device inside the recording paper is visible. さらには、屋外使用を考えた場合、直射日光や大気中のガスに起因する印刷物の色変化や雨水等による印刷物の劣化を抑える目的からも何らかの透明パネルを設けることが好ましい。 Furthermore, when considering outdoor use, it is preferable to provide some sort of transparent panels for the purpose of suppressing the print degradation due to direct sunlight or color change or rainwater printed matter due to gas in the atmosphere. また直射日光に対しては、透明パネルに紫外線吸収(カット)機能を持たせることが極めて有効である。 For also direct sunlight, it is extremely effective to impart ultraviolet absorbing (cutting) function transparent panel. 本発明に使うことが可能な透明パネルの具体例を例示すると、メラニン樹脂シート、アクリル樹脂シート、塩ビシート、 To illustrate a specific example of the transparent panel can be used with the present invention, melanin resin sheet, acrylic resin sheet, polyvinyl chloride sheet,
硝子シート等で紫外線吸収特性を持たせたシートを挙げることが出来る。 It can be given a sheet to have a UV absorption characteristics in the glass sheet, and the like.
