Konica Minolta’s new monochrome bizhub i-Series

Konica Minolta Business Solutions 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 beneficial features for workplaces with printing needs ranging from low-volume to high-volume, not requiring color output,” the company said.

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 company said. As per the company, the large, floating 10-inch tablet-style touch panel with a 26° to 90° tilt angle provides convenient 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. Easy, touchless accessibility is provided through the bizhub Remote Access app, enabling remote MFP panel operations, data entry and scanned data import from the convenience of a mobile and tablet device.

Security:

As an extension of the bizhub i-Series, the monochrome devices also offer the highest built-in security standards with additional options for a complete security setting. Data is protected and reliably accessible through a layered approach to ensure the ultimate defense against any potential threat.

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 US 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.

As part of Konica Minolta’s  next-generation multifunctional device portfolio designed to empower digital workflows, the new monochrome MFPs are designed to work with sophisticated workflow tools such as Konica Minolta’s Dispatcher Suite, also layered by security options through bizhub SECURE services. This allows for businesses to have effective print management and advanced document workflow while maintaining document security.

“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.”

In 2024, we are looking at full recovery and growth-led investment in Indian printing

Indian Printer and Publisher founded in 1979 is the oldest B2B trade publication in the multi-platform and multi-channel IPPGroup. It created the category of privately owned B2B print magazines in the country. And by its diversification in packaging, (Packaging South Asia), food processing and packaging (IndiFoodBev) and health and medical supply chain and packaging (HealthTekPak), and its community activities in training, research, and conferences (Ipp Services, Training and Research) the organization continues to create platforms that demonstrate the need for quality information, data, technology insights and events.

India is a large and tough terrain and while its book publishing and commercial printing industry have recovered and are increasingly embracing digital print, the Indian newspaper industry continues to recover its credibility and circulation. The signage industry is also recovering and new technologies and audiences such as digital 3D additive printing, digital textiles, and industrial printing are coming onto our pages. Diversification is a fact of life for our readers and like them, we will also have to adapt with agility to keep up with their business and technical information needs.

India is one of the fastest growing economies in nominal and real terms – in a region poised for the highest change in year to year expenditure in printing equipment and consumables. Our 2024 media kit is ready, and it is the right time to take stock – to emphasize your visibility and relevance to your customers and turn potential markets into conversations.
