First bizhub Color MFP in Segment #1 Proves Ideal for Small Office Environments
Konica Minolta Business Solutions U.S.A., Inc. (Konica Minolta) has unveiled the new bizhub C200, a multifunctional product (MFP - print, copy, fax, and scan all in one system) tailored to fit the needs of small office to mid-range office workgroups, departments or low volume black and white environments, coupled with color prints at an economical price. Users in the growing Segment 1 market will now have the benefit of Konica Minolta MFP technology at a price and feature point that meets customers' needs.
The bizhub C200, which prints at 20 pages per minute in both color and black and white, is an entry-level bizhub developed by Konica Minolta that boasts all the functionality and quality needed from a color office system. Designed specifically to help users who are looking to migrate to color printing or have need for occasional color printing without paying a premium price, the bizhub C200 will deliver exceptional, affordable color output, while still producing crisp black-and-white prints, and all at a low total cost of ownership.
Built upon the strong success of the award-winning Konica Minolta technology, the bizhub C200 incorporates many innovative features such as the Emperon Print System and Simitri HD (High Definition) Color Polymerized Toner, which uses smaller and more uniform-size particles for improved print quality, allows users to reduce energy consumption by as much as 15 percent, requiring lower fusing temperatures than average toners. The Konica Minolta proprietary Emperon Print System provides a 667MHz 440EP processor and 576 MB standard memory which makes it possible to handle diverse office needs. The bizhub C200 also offers unified print drivers for ease-of-use with PCL, PS compatibility as well as support for PC and Mac environments.
The bizhub C200 offers features such as Super G3 Faxing, Internet Fax, IP Address Fax (BW only), PC-Fax and Multi-Line Fax for high-volume fax environments. The network scan functions such as Multi-Method Send and Scan-to-Email provide greater flexibility in sharing information. In addition, the bizhub C200 provides security functions such as Secure Print and Account Track.
The bizhub C200 can handle media sizes ranging from 5.5"x 8.5" to as large as 12"x18". The standard 250-sheet paper capacity can be increased to a maximum of 3,350 sheets - media types ranging from plain paper (up to 24 lb.) to thick stock (up to 140 lb index). The Job Separator option adds flexibility to the capability of the bizhub C200 by offering a choice of an additional output tray that can be programmed to handle different functions. The optional Auto Reversing Document Feeder, which can handle up to 70 sheets, provides additional versatility and ease of use.
