Konica Minolta South Africa launches a new addition to the bizhub i-Series range, the bizhub C750i. This A3 high-volume colour multi-functional device (MFD) is designed to provide the functionality of a small-scale print shop. It fulfils the needs of customers who process high-volume print jobs such as small Central Reprographic Departments (CRDs) as well as small-sized copy shops.
It is ideal for office environments where a high volume of printing and scanning is required and is the perfect addition for centralised print rooms. The C750i is a great solution for a wide range of office environments such as government departments, legal firms, educational institutions and healthcare facilities. The intelligent media sensor that is a standard feature on the C750i is the highlight of the new device.
The bizhub C750i is the successor of the bizhub C759 device with greater capabilities, offering a print speed of up to 75ppm in mono and 70ppm in colour. The high-capacity and high-speed dual-scan document feeder with the double feed detection sensor, is capable of running speeds of up to 140/280ipm. This makes it ideal for handling larger scan volumes for digital archiving, as an example, at schools or legal offices. Furthermore, the bizhub C750i features large finishers with an integrated manual stapler and offers a quick copy mode to guarantee faster copying with fewer clicks and pop-ups, since all main settings are available at a glance. Additionally, the home screen customisation makes it quicker to add, rearrange or remove icons for a personalised experience.
Intelligent media sensor reduces paper jams and improves output quality
Where a client has a requirement to print on a variety of media types, the C750i is the perfect solution. Traditionally, good print quality can’t be achieved unless the paper thickness and media type are set correctly. Taking care of the paper settings entails additional work every time users want to print. The bizhub C750i offers an intelligent media sensor which instantly measures the paper type and thickness, for instance thin or thick paper, recycled paper, or envelopes, and automatically adjusts the settings as needed. This feature ensures fewer paper jams, fewer service calls and a better output quality.
As office documents become more digitised and the volumes of data increase, companies and institutions need centralised management and better access to documents for reference. They require more sophisticated integration with the cloud and advanced remote access, meaning more complex workflows and a need for better security. The bizhub C750i is equipped with the latest security technology to provide a reliably safe user environment. Bitdefender, the leading-edge anti-virus solution can be added to the MFD’s firmware and thus monitors all scanned files and documents transferred to and from it in real time. It also enables automatic virus scanning on hard drives as well as manual scans. With the addition of bizhub SECURE, different security levels and access licenses can be set to ensure the security of office devices and protect device memory and network settings.
Remote usage and support
Like all other systems of the bizhub i-Series, the bizhub C750i can be operated remotely. It is therefore possible to operate these devices, which have been designed to be used by multiple employees, without the user ever having to even touch the control panel. This can be done, for example, by using computers, mobile phones or tablets. Moreover, Konica Minolta offers fast and professional full support via a remote services tool.
Approaching the digital workplace with intelligent features
Businesses seek to become digital connected workplaces that bring together people, spaces, and devices with data. The bizhub i-Series MFD’s are smart IoT-enabled devices which are designed to pave the way for the “Intelligent Connected Workplace”, and so the bizhub C750i also offers a fully digital workplace. The bizhub C750i combines printing with process efficiency to empower customers to organise, streamline and customise their printing landscape while providing the tools to digitise workflows. With an innovative and intuitive user experience and powerful built-in processing capabilities, the bizhub C750i provides secure access to a suite of cloud-based services and applications via Konica Minolta’s MarketPlace.
