In a move which underlines its domain leadership position in the office printing space, Konica Minolta, a global leader in advanced imaging and networking technologies, has announced the launch of its latest innovative offering, the bizhub C759/C659. A colour multifunction printer (MFP) equipped with state-of-the-art features and functionality, the bizhub C759/C659 has been designed to deliver best-in-class performance with its remarkable colour print quality and high print speed of up to 75 pages per minute.

The bizhub C759/C659 comes equipped with an improved 10.1 inch electrostatic multi-touch operation panel to enable better operability and security. It has a large capacity, high-speed automatic document feeder (speed-240 ipm).The bizhub C759/C659 also cuts down the start-up time by up to 13.5 seconds as compared to the previous model, while its FCOT (first copy output time) value of <4.9 seconds is better than any other office printing solution in its class.

The C759/C659 offers ease of use through its info palette design for seamless MFP operation from PCs, tablets and smartphones for a consistent user experience. It also uses a scalable controller to provide the same user experience as its predecessor, thus doing away with the need to retrain users when the machine is upgraded.

The innovative MFP also ensures seamless mobile and cloud connectivity and is compatible with multiple print environments such as AirPrint, Mopria, Google Cloud Print, Bluetooth, Near Field Communication (NFC), Integrated Wireless Solutions (IWS), and web browsers. All of these features enable the bizhub C759/C659 to fully support a wide range of workflows as the central machine, whilst ensuring superior user productivity.

The Covid-19 pandemic led to the country-wide lockdown on 25 March 2020. It will be two years tomorrow as I write this. What have we learned in this time? Maybe the meaning of resilience since small companies like us have had to rely on our resources and the forbearance of our employees as we have struggled to produce our trade platforms.

The print and packaging industries have been fortunate, although the commercial printing industry is still to recover. We have learned more about the digital transformation that affects commercial printing and packaging. Ultimately digital will help print grow in a country where we are still far behind in our paper and print consumption and where digital is a leapfrog technology that will only increase the demand for print in the foreseeable future.

Web analytics show that we now have readership in North America and Europe amongst the 90 countries where our five platforms reach. Our traffic which more than doubled in 2020, has at times gone up by another 50% in 2021. And advertising which had fallen to pieces in 2020 and 2021, has started its return since January 2022.

As the economy approaches real growth with unevenness and shortages a given, we are looking forward to the PrintPack India exhibition in Greater Noida. We are again appointed to produce the Show Daily on all five days of the show from 26 to 30 May 2022.

It is the right time to support our high-impact reporting and authoritative and technical information with some of the best correspondents in the industry. Readers can power Indian Printer and Publisher’s balanced industry journalism and help sustain us by subscribing.
