Large 8.5” color LCD touch-screen control panel. Simple icons and thumbnail previews help every operator scan, print and fax more quickly, with shortcut keys you can customize -- and tilt-swivel design provides easy access for all employees in compliance with Section 508.

Enlarged thumbnail preview. On the LCD screen you can enlarge a thumbnail page of documents scanned into a User Box, making it easy to check documents before you print.

High-performance bizhub OP design. Combines three essential advantages for multifunctional productivity: bizhub Architecture to improve performance and account/device management, the Emperon® Print System to integrate fast document output with simple user interface, and bizhub Extended Solution Technology (bEST) for custom integration with future third-party software.

Simitri® Polymerized Toner. The exclusive Konica Minolta technology that uses ultra-fine particles of smaller size and more consistent shape to sharpen image detail, make text more legible and increase halftone definition.

WebDAV online file management. Support for WebDAV (Web-based Distributed Authoring and Versioning) makes it easier to manage files and folders on your web server, identify authors and dates of web pages, lock documents and track file revisions.

IPv6: the next-generation Internet protocol. IPv6 dramatically increases IP addressing power and gives every networked bizhub device its own IP address to facilitate communication and improve security.

IC-207 Image Controller option. Driven by the Emperon® Print System, the IC-207 provides powerful desktop control of PCL6/PS3 emulation and native XPS functionality -- powered by a 600 MHz processor.

Faster scanning to more destinations. You can scan documents at up to 70 originals per minute -- with Scan-to-Email to attach documents as PDF, XPS or TIFF files, Scan-to-FTP for quick access via any PC on your network, Scan-to-SMB to send files to shared folders on desktop PCs, and TWAIN scanning from PCs.

bizhub Send for simultaneous distribution. You can do more work in fewer keystrokes -- scanning, Emailing and faxing while simultaneously storing a User Box copy or saving the file to SMB or FTP.

Enhanced User Box functions. You can also scan documents to individual user boxes on an optional 60 GB hard disk drive, assigning User Boxes to individuals, departments or workgroups, even allocating User Boxes by theme, project or goal.

Convenient USB transfer. A simple USB Interface option located on the front of your bizhub printer scanner copier lets you scan files to a USB thumb-drive and also print files from a USB thumb-drive -- including files in PDF, XPS, TIFF and encrypted PDF formats.

Super G3 Fax option for all-in-one productivity. Provides direct faxing from your PC, IP Address fax capability, TSI routing, 2,000-location address book, broadcasting and program dialing -- with an optional second phone line to double your input/output.

Ultra-secure biometric authentication option. Recognizes users based on scanning finger vein patterns for secure MFP access and fast “ID-and-print” operation.
