Konica Minolta has announced the availability of the HID AU-205H GEN2 Multi Technology Card Reader.
The reader adds support for HID Mobile Access for iPhone, Android and Google devices using Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) technology. The user places their phone near the reader to log into the MFP. From there, they can release print jobs from Konica Minolta’sprint management applications such as Dispatcher Paragon. Single sign-on provides users with access to scan workflow applications such as Dispatcher Phoenix.
“By building on our strategic partnership with HID Global and the AU-205H GEN2, we are able to take user authentication to a higher level of security and convenience,” said Kevin Kern, senior vice president, Business Intelligence Services and Product Planning, Konica Minolta. “The ability to offer technology that replaces cards with phones and eliminates the need to enter a user name or password, all without compromising print/scan performance or data security aligns with our strategy to provide the most comprehensive portfolio of intelligent connected workplace solutions to our customers.”
“Konica Minolta has taken a major step at enhancing the user experience by incorporating our latest OMNIKEY offering with HID Mobile Access into its next generation of readers,” said Steve Currie, VP and Managing Director of Extended Access Technologies with HID Global. “AU-205H GEN2 is a perfect example of bringing to life our vision of extending the use of HID technology to seamlessly grant access to different systems, while giving employees the choice of using their ID badge or smartphones.”
Konica Minolta’s new color single-function printers – C4000i and C3050i – now support the AU-205H GEN2 Multi Technology Card Readers.
