Konica Minolta has expanded its bizhub i-Series with the launch of six new black and white A3 multifunctional printers (MFPs). The new bizhub 750i, 650i, 550i, 450i, 360i and 300i multifunctional devices offer functionality with features for workplaces with printing needs ranging from low-volume to high-volume, not requiring color output.
The launch expands Konica Minolta’s offering with the addition of the 75ppm 750i, a speed not available in its previous monochrome MFP lineup.
The units mirror the functionality of the color versions exactly, with the exception of the Fiery controller and related software.
The large, floating 10″ tablet-style touch panel with a 26° to 90° tilt angle provides accessibility and operation for all users with standard customization functionality as well as through the optional MarketPlace UI Builder, Personalize and Personalize’s Follow-You Persona.
The i-Series was recently recognized by Keypoint Intelligence as a recipient of 2020-21 BLI PaceSetter award in Ease of Use: Enterprise Devices, noting that ease of use is a critical factor in product design and development for Konica Minolta and it has “made its mark with usability-enhancing innovations.”
The monochrome devices also offer built-in security standards with additional options for a complete security setting.
The Solid-State Drive (SSD) offers greater security than a traditional hard disk drive, using flash memory instead of magnetic storage that may not completely erase deleted data. In addition, all SSL communications are encrypted through a highly secure encryption algorithm which is based on the U.S. NSA (National Security Agency) standard and available only from Konica Minolta. All i-Series models are compliant with GDPR and ISO 15408 certified HCD-PP, ensuring that all data privacy standards and endpoint security requirements are met.
Additionally, through bizhub SECURE services, security is tailored to specific needs through data encryption, locked passwords, secured access and device network settings. The optional BitDefender anti-virus software safeguards against viruses and malware by scanning incoming and outgoing data, adding yet another security layer to protect a business’ ecosystem.
The optional Intelligent Media Sensor, developed exclusively by Konica Minolta, automatically detects stock weight and makes necessary adjustments. An improved waste toner box eliminates spills when replacing cartridges.
As part of Konica Minolta’s next-generation multifunctional device portfolio designed to empower digital workflows, the new monochrome MFPs have also been designed to work with sophisticated workflow tools such as Konica Minolta’s Dispatcher Suite, also layered by security options through bizhub SECURE services.
“Keeping our customers and end users in mind, as well as the ever-changing ways of work, our bizhub i-Series multifunctional devices offer versatile and tailored solutions for any type of business and organization, ensuring minimal disruption to productivity and efficiency,” said Dino Pagliarello, senior vice president, Product Management and Planning, Konica Minolta. “With the addition of the monochrome models, our i-Series product line is now complete, providing the ease of use we have become known for in the industry with the choice of color or black and white.”
