Newest Color MFPs Feature Enhancements for Productivity, Efficiency and Low Energy Consumption 

Ramsey, N.J. – April 10, 2013 – Konica Minolta Business Solutions U.S.A., Inc. (Konica Minolta) today announces the launch of the bizhub® C364e/C284e/C224e Series of Color Multifunctional Products (MFP - print, copy, scan and fax all in one system). Adopting Konica Minolta’s award-winning INFO-Palette design for multi-touch functionality, these latest MFPs are considered enhanced versions of their predecessors (bizhub C364/C284/C224) and include a variety of new features to increase productivity, overall versatility and energy savings.  

With a range of print/copy speeds of 36 ppm, 28 ppm and 22 ppm (bizhub C364e, bizhub C284e, bizhub C224e respectively), Konica Minolta’s newest bizhub models are ideal for small- to medium-sized business environments and offer productivity to match user workflow. This series incorporates the latest evolution of the INFO-Palette design with enhancements including: improved swiping; drag and drop; tap and toggle; pinch in and pinch out; as well as image rotation operations. The control panel also offers direct access to downloadable apps from the Konica Minolta bizhub MarketPlace. In addition, security has been expanded on these new models, making them the first bizhub MFPs to comply with the IEEE 2600.1 international standard for MFP and printer information security. Furthermore, the bizhub C364e/C284e/C224e series offers Konica Minolta’s exclusive Emperon® print system for built-in print control and the next-generation Simitri® HD toner formulation for sharp, clear images.  

To reduce energy consumption, the series also incorporates a wake-up function, which enables automatic answering for network communication. The result is a larger power shutdown area that reduces power consumption in sleep mode so that electricity is only provided to the area needed to wake up the device. This new platform consumes less than 1.0-wattts during sleep mode and also improves TEC values.   

“In today’s competitive business world, MFPs are now considered part of an overall solution that provides added value company-wide, in terms of improved business efficiency and optimization,” says Kevin Kern, senior vice president, Marketing, Konica Minolta Business Solutions U.S.A., Inc. “As an enhanced series of MFPs, the bizhub C364e, bizhub C284e and bizhub C224e exemplify how customers can count on Konica Minolta for solutions that allow them to manage information faster and more efficiently with less impact to the environment.”
