1 Press release Konica Minolta updates high end office communication system series Langenhagen, Germany, August 2009 In mid September 2009 Konica Minolta is launching its new bizhub C452 a first class multifunctional device (MFP) that stands for complete reliability and quality, up to date communication skills and unique environmental friendliness. Offering impressive versatility and processing high print volumes in monochrome and colour, it best serves all high end office environments, such as large workgroups, busy departments and CRDs. Konica Minolta also upgraded its bizhub C552s and C652s already extensive finishing capabilities. The bizhub C452 combines the performance and quality of a high-end colour office device with modular finishing options, says Lars Moderow, Product Manager at Konica Minolta Business Solutions Europe. Equipped with our proprietary Auto-Refining Developing System, it processes monochrome output at low costs comparable with those of all black and white units. Altogether, it is the ideal solution for every office environment requiring an efficient, first-class central communication system. Featuring Konica Minoltas skills to win, the new colour office system provides latest technological innovations at an affordable price. With the advanced Emperon controller, for instance, users can count on the seamless integration of the bizhub C452 into any existing network infrastructure. This powerful controller also includes the revolutionary MyTab printer driver tab which enables users to individually adjust 2 settings in one single screen. Moreover, MyTab recently received a prestigious BLI Outstanding Achievement Award. A further feature, the bizhub OpenAPI, allows control of print and scan functions from external and third-party software applications. It gives customers an easy possibility to integrate their existing software into the bizhub C452. OpenAPI also takes care of individually customised workflow management. Consisting of several single applications, another skill to win, the PageScope Suite software, facilitates account and data management. Users have a constant overview of the MFPs status and can easily manage documents stored in user boxes directly from their PCs. In addition, with PageScope Suite administrators can integrate new hardware into existing workflows and control output volumes. The optionally embedded IC-412 Fiery colour print controller brings together three essential characteristics to perfectly meet highest demands of creative professionals and colour critical businesses colour consistency, strength and productivity. Opting for this powerful tool, users benefit from considerably enhanced colour processing and colour management. When it comes to colour quality, Konica Minoltas own Simitri HD polymerised toner guarantees crisp text and bright images second to none. The bizhub C452 delivers printouts of the highest quality with long-lasting colours. To permanently assure the entire systems quality standards, CS Remote Care offers flexible and pro-active service support. By automatically updating Konica Minolta about the devices performance, the remote monitoring application assures maximum system availability without any user intervention making a real impact on quality, reliability and convenience. Due to an optimal power control functionality and lower heating and fixing temperatures, the office system proves its environmental soundness by using significantly less power. A TEC (typical weekly energy consumption) value of about 60 percent below the latest Energy Star requirements makes the new Konica Minolta colour office system the most eco-friendly MFP of its class. 3 Equal to the bizhubs C552 and C652, the bizhub C452 comes with standard state-of-the-art hardware elements featuring 2 GB DDR2 memory, 250 GB hard disc drive, 1 GHz CPU and PCI Express bus technology that altogether deliver one thing: high-speed performance. For maximum utilisation of these strong interior components, customers can equip the bizhub C452 with a large variety of modular finishing options that best fit their needs and offer attractive flexibility. At the same time, Konica Minolta takes the finishing abilities of its bizhubs C552 and C652 to the next level by adding new options to their enormous range of finishers. For handouts and charts, the z-fold unit automatically folds A3 media to A4 size, while an additional post inserter makes the handling of special or non-printable media for covers straightforward. Allowing for faster access to different job outputs such as copies and faxes, the job separator increases the MFPs ease of use. Integrated in all bizhubs C452, C552 and C652, Konica Minolta also introduces the latest i-Option edition. Besides economising the devices user operation, the smart software solution provides enhanced MFP capabilities. In combination with an embedded ORC engine it allows operators to create searchable and compact PDF files on the fly. As recently proved by the independent testing lab BERTL, that decorated the MFPs with a 2009 BERTLs Best award in the Best Productive Color Printer Range, our bizhub C452/C552/C652 series re-defines the term multi-functionality, outlines Lars Moderow. On the one hand, it perfectly serves all requirements of todays office printing market, as it includes high-speed scanning, digital fax, embedded accounting, document serving, and security. On the other hand, the office systems offer all finishing, print media and controller capabilities for the Print for Pay market, such as Personalised Print Markup Language for Variable Data Printing. Combining these elements with embedded solutions and the OpenAPI opportunities of workflow customisation, makes them true all-rounders for any kind of print businesses. 4 Press photos As the perfect solution for high end office environments and creative professionals searching for a reliable and flexible high-volume colour system, the bizhub C452 features Konica Minoltas skills to win.
