Patent Number: 6,310,699

Title: Facsimile device

Abstract: The present invention relates to a facsimile device that is connectable to a plurality of lines. When a facsimile transmission is made, information regarding the transmission source (the facsimile number, the sender's name and the like) is normally transmitted as TSI signals or as a part of the image data (TTI) to the receiver side. According to the present invention,TTI information (line information) can be set for each of a plurality of lines and a particular item of the line information can be selected as desired. Thus, the same line information (TTI information) can be transmitted over all the lines when a simultaneous broadcasting transmission is made using a plurality of lines. In addition, when some lines are used exclusively for transmission and some are used exclusively for reception, any confusion of the TTI on the receiver side will be avoided because misuse of the sender's dedicated transmission lines for reception of a return fax from the original receiving side can be reliably avoided.
