Bizhub 223

Today, almost every workflow involves colour in some form or other. Colour output is not always required, but colour input, via colour scanning, is essential in the modern office. Colour is indispensable for the electronic workflows of teams, workgroups and departments in more or less any business field, including banking, finance and insurance, accounting and personnel. Konica Minolta satisfies these demands with its range of innovative workflow professionals that combine comprehensive black & white output capabilities with flexible and creative colour input functionality.

Fast scanning in colour and b/w
bizhub 223, 283, 363 and 423 are perfect in- and output tools for any situation that requires productive colour scanning with b/w printing or copying. As highly efficient and versatile scanners for up to A3 format they make the little desktop A4 scanners obsolete and also do away with the need for separate scan stations.

All four bizhubs scan up to 70 hard originals per minute in both colour and black & white. The complete scanning functionality of scan to email (Home), FTP, SMB, Box (HDD required), USB, and TWAIN is standard; and with JPEG, TIFF, PDF, compact PDF, XPS and compact XPS, the bizhub 423 series processes all relevant formats.

Same as the other innovative products in the bizhub portfolio, the bizhub 423 series features best, Konica Minolta's bizhub Extended Solution Technology. Best offers a gateway to extended document capturing and distribution applications that make the workflow professionals ideal input tools for teams, workgroups and small departments.

Document capture and distribution
Among the features indispensable to modern office communication are the digitisation and indexing of documents; OCR implementation, conversion to specific file formats like PDF/A, and direct document distribution to existing business applications. The bizhub 423 series can be optionally upgraded with such comprehensive document capturing and distribution capabilities.

And with full panel integration of the software, no separate hardware is required. Document archiving workflows can for example be started directly at the bizhub panel, inputting all required information like document type and additional index fields during the scan process so that no further treatment of the scans in the PC is needed. Additionally, an extensive range of optional connectors provides access to almost any imaginable backend application, including Document Management Systems, Enterprise Content Management Systems, Microsoft® SharePoint, and more. In this way, bEST enables easy adaptation of the bizhub 423 series to close the gap to customer environments.

Accounting workflows
The PageScope Account Manager enables the central collection of detailed counter readings of all registered devices plus the resulting cost calculation – and all this via a single interface. Counters no longer need to be triggered individually, saving considerable administrator time and effort. Individual output limitations set by the administrator for each user help reduce print volumes and output costs. Users’ volume limitations are reliably tracked across all networked output devices, making cost control even more effective. Offering fast access to detailed cost information of departments and projects, the Account Manager is also a perfect tool to increase cost consciousness among users and optimise output volumes at the same time. In turn, the detailed usage reports facilitate the optimisation of the output infrastructure on the basis of actual usage patterns. All this considerably enhances the overall efficiency and productivity.

Authentication workflows
The central management of the user database and user rights is simple and straightforward via the PageScope Authentication Manager. Saving time and enjoying enhanced efficiency, administrators can quickly and easily program authentication details. Users benefit from enhanced flexibility and convenience with the immediate yet secure login via finger vein scanner or non-contact IC card.

Authentication is also the precondition for follow-me printing, which takes user convenience as well as security aspects to new dimensions. Not only are follow-me printing workflows ideal for confidential printing anywhere; they also facilitate print fleet optimisation. Both pull printing and secure printing are available on every bEST OpenAPI-capable system in the network. Printed information is reliably safe as only the document owner can release prints directly at the device. This simple but effective method avoids wasting paper and helps reduce print volumes – output trays are no longer cluttered with redundant prints that might fall into the wrong hands.

This is also the ideal tool to implement efficient cost reductions, through the optimisation of the print fleet with devices that can double as personal printers.

Administrative workflows
The PageScope Net Care Device Manager facilitates the central implementation of system network configurations and central status monitoring. Considerably reducing administrative efforts, this application provides fast access to and simple monitoring of individual or all devices on the network, helping to maximise the uptime of all monitored equipment. Streamlined status recalls and automatic email notifications ensure instant attention to problems and help avoid any bottlenecks in printing. This maximises uptime, which in turn improves the productivity of all integrated systems and has a welcome positive impact on the overall office productivity.

Automated service workflows
CS Remote Care is Konica Minolta’s proven remote monitoring system that ensures pro-active and highly flexible service support. All relevant system data are transmitted directly to the Konica Minolta service in an automated process that never needs user intervention. The direct transmission of any technical problem from the output device to the service organisation minimises downtime and avoids time-consuming service calls.

Taking counter readings and relaying them to the Konica Minolta service is also a thing of the past. At the same time, CS Remote Care provides automated logistics, regularly checking the consumables status and ordered stock. Manual reordering is no longer necessary; instead companies benefit from optimised work efficiency from the intelligent on-time delivery of consumables.

Complete compatibility
Like the other bizhub multifunctionals in the Konica Minolta portfolio, the bizhub 223/283/363/423 feature proprietary Emperon™ controller technology that ensures their seamless integration into any standard network setup, which makes them compatible with virtually any customer environment. With standard PCL, PostScript 3, PDF and XPS support, the Emperon™ provides maximum compatibility and is CITRIX ready as well; Windows drivers are WHQL certified. At the same time, bizhub 223/283/363/423 are SAP certified, with Konica Minolta a Gold Partner in the SAP Printer Vendor Programme. Users benefit from simple and straightforward installation and assured reliability as well as SAP customer support.

Comprehensive security
Featuring Konica Minolta’s generous security standards, bizhub 223, 283, 363 and 423 are certified to ISO 15408 EAL3. This official security certification represents international standards and underlines the superiority of the Konica Minolta security technologies. All four systems can be connected to secure networks with client authentication via IEEE 802.1x; offer safe network communication by encryption with the IPsec protocol; and feature standard HDD encryption to protect all data on the hard disc against unauthorised use. Authentication via optional finger vein scanner or non-contact ID card reliably limits system access to authorised users and is more convenient than typing in user names and passwords.

User-friendly operation
Thanks to their extremely low noise level and very quiet operation, bizhub 223/283/363/423 are very comfortable to work side by side with and perfectly suited for installation in any location, including open-plan offices. User convenience is enhanced with a number of special system features, such as the animated help and user guidance. An optional keyboard further supports the simple and straightforward operation. And the MyTab Printer driver adds extra operation ease, letting users individually combine their frequently needed features in a single setting screen. Corporate environments benefit from the minimised learning curve: To operate the bizhub 423 series, virtually no training is necessary.

Impressive eco-performance
bizhub 223/283/363/423 offer numerous energy con- serving features and are Energy Star and German Blue Angel certified. They impress with very low TEC values that remain well below latest Energy Star regu- lations and underline the eco-friendly operation. The TEC value represents a product’s typical electricity consumption (TEC) within one week, based on aver- age office use. Even with options such as a finisher installed, these products have extremely low energy consumption. This makes the bizhub 423 series not only environmentally sound but can also help consid- erably to reduce operation costs.

One key factor for the eco-friendly operation is Konica Minolta’s unique Simitri® HD polymerised toner: With its lower fusing point it requires a shorter warm-up time and helps to reduce energy con- sumption and CO2 emissions. At the same time, Simitri® HD polymerised toner is partially plant- based, its use of biomass as well as its production process answering the demands of the modern, CO2-conscious society.

With low power and sleep mode, the bizhub 423 series offers two power saving modes to reduce energy consumption during idle phases. From both modes, the systems restart automatically as soon as a user operates a panel key or a print job comes in. Incoming faxes do not restart the machine but are stored in a secure memory until the device is reacti- vated by another process.

Minimised ecological impact
In compliance with its ISO 14001-based environmen- tal management system, Konica Minolta promotes resource-friendly product development, including the use of recycled materials wherever possible, and a consumables design that enables the fast and simple separation into their component materials for easy recycling.

This is part of the zero-waste manufacturing con- cept, with which Konica Minolta strives to minimise the ecological impact of its products with efficient environmental activities throughout all stages of the product lifecycle.
