Title: DATA REPLACEMENT OUTPUT APPARATUS AND METHOD
Abstract:
The data replacement output apparatus 10 determines whether to perform a sequential output of replacement data based on a comparison between (i) the number of units of data constituting replacement object data received during a time period and (ii) the number of units of data constituting replacement data output during the time period. The determination is made each time replacement object data is received while the sequential output of data is not performed. If it determines to perform the sequential output, the data replacement output apparatus 10 outputs replacement data each time data constituting a data stream is received, and outputs non-replacement-object data each time data constituting non-replacement-object data is received while the sequential output is not performed; if it determines not to perform the sequential output, it outputs non-replacement-object data each time a unit of data constituting the data stream is received.
