The bizhub C20 offers all the capabilities of a colour multifunctional in A4. It’s the perfect compact alternative for locations that require full versatility but don’t have a lot of room to spare. 'The bizhub C20 is ideal wherever space is at a premium, not only at reception or in the secre- tary's office.
Combining b/w and colour printing, copying, scanning and faxing in a single system, the bizhub C20 impresses with its comprehensive functionality. With both automatic duplexing and an automatic duplex document feeder standard, it is generously equipped and competent to handle the entire varied every-day office tasks. Installed right next to the workplace thanks to its small footprint, the bizhub C20 is discreet, keeping all confidential information reliably safe – and as such it’s an ideal choice for example for the personnel and/or controlling departments.
The use of Konica Minolta’s proprietary Simitri®HD polymerised toner makes the bizhub C20 a true professional with regard to quality. Whether in colour or b/w, it delivers beautifully sharp and crisp prints and copies. At the same time, the Simitri® HD toner is very economic to use and, thanks to considerably lower fixing temperatures, kinder to the environment, too.
With enhanced resolution of up to 600 x 600 dpi x 4 bit and an attractive matt finish, the print quality on the bizhub C20 is superb. Thanks to the advanced capabilities of Simitri® HD – the high definition polymerised toner that Konica Minolta also applies to its larger multifunctionals – it delivers above-average quality and high durability. A unique edge enhancement process sharpens the contours of text and graphics, ensuring top performance especially for text, fine lines and drawings – the result is a crisp and clear printed image always, whether in colour or b/w.
While very economic to use, the bizhub C20 also enables companies to show consideration for the environment. Low-temperature fixing saves up to 15 % energy and has been achieved with Simitri® HD polimerised toner which needs a much lower fusing temperature. The important international energy star label testifies to this attractively low energy consumption. Also the production of Konica Minolta’s proprietary polymerised toner is environmentally sound: during the production process of Simitri® HD toner 40 percent less CO2, NO2 and SO2 are emitted than with conventional pulverised toners.
Administration is made easy with the bizhub C20 : PageScope Web Connection provides simple and straightforward web-based device management – users can easily call up information on the status and settings of the bizhub C20 right on their PC monitor. At the same time PageScope Netcare enhances the administrator support with fast access and simple monitoring on the network.
A productive tandem A4 copier, the bizhub C20 supplies fast 24 pages per minute – in colour as well as in b/w. Its scan-once-print-many functionality makes the production of multiple copies quick, simple and straightforward. Added convenience is available with automatic duplex copying and the automatic duplex document feeder, both standard. Other practical functions include zoom and the 2-in-1 or 4-in-1 function, with which up to 4 pages can be combined on one sheet to save paper.
With its versatile media handling capabilities the bizhub C20 has a real talent for producing sophisticated, professional-looking documents. The standard 250-sheet paper feeder is enhanced with a flexible 100-sheet multi manual feed tray via which up to 210 gsm paper can be fed. In addition, the overall paper capacity can be increased to a generous 850 sheets with an optional lower paper feeder.
As a printer, the bizhub C20 features a 500 MHz processor plus standard 256 MB RAM, upgradeable to 768 MB. Konica Minolta’s highly efficient Emperon™ system ensures compatibility with PostScript® 3™ and PCL® 6 and enables seamless integration into virtually any network. Native support of XPS, Microsoft Vista™’s XML paper specification, is provided via the optional HDD. With Gigabit Ethernet and high-speed USB 2.0 support the bizhub C20 is well equipped and future-ready. Direct USB print for PDF, TIFF, JPEG and XPS formats is available as an option.
Special print features include n-up printing, automatic page output in booklet order, poster mode and image overlay – highly practical for forms printing or for example to combine correspondence automatically with the company letterhead. If the optional HDD is equipped secure printing is also available, enabling users to delay printing by first setting a password on their computer, which they then need to enter directly at the bizhub C20’s display to release their job. Full confidentiality is thus guaranteed.
With an identical scanning speed of up to 24 origi- nals per minute, the bizhub C20 is a highly produc- tive scanner for colour and b/w. Its automatic duplex document feeder enables automatic scanning of the front and the reverse of a page, making scanning even more productive. Same as on Konica Minolta's A3 MFPs, a wealth of enhanced network scan functions is available, including Scan-to-email, -FTP and -SMB. This means direct network scanning – neither additional software nor a locally connected PC are required. Scan to USB memory enables direct storing of scans in PDF, JPEG or TIFF format on a USB stick – a "detour" via the computer is not necessary.
As an effective pull scan application, the Link Magic software facilitates scanning from the PC without opening any specific application. The functions TWAIN and WIA Scan are also available; and the standard PaperPort 11SE scan software provides a convenient OCR functionality, making the managing and archiving of documents faster and easier
The bizhub C20 is a capable ECM/Super G3 fax that enables its users to send and receive documents at high speed. Its address book functionality includes up to 220 speed dials that can be combined into to 20 groups with max. 50 destinations each. User convenience is impressively generous and includes many practical functions such as time send and auto redial.
A helpful and versatile PC fax driver allows direct faxing of documents from the PC – no printout of the document is required. With the Fax-forward- to-email feature any incoming fax can directly go to a pre-programmed email address. It’s up to the recipient to decide whether he needs to print the document at all.
The bizhub C20 offers a wealth of features, functionalities and conveniences that streamline every-day office communication, speeding up general office tasks and enhancing any team’s or single user’s productivity. It’s the perfect choice as the local communication centre in busy companies and complex organisations.
