Next Generation colour multi-function printers recognised for Peak Performance and Design
Document Solutions is pleased to announce Konica Minolta has won the Red Dot Award 2020 for it’s bizhub i-Series product range – C360i/C300i/C250i (A3 colour MFP) and C4050i/C3350i (A4 colour MFP). The Red Dot Award is one the most prestigious design awards, in the category of ‘Product Design 2020’.
The bizhub i-Series combines printing with process efficiency to empower customers to organise, streamline and customise their printing landscape, while providing the tools to digitalise workflows. With an innovative and intuitive user experience and powerful built-in processing capabilities, i-Series MFPs are able to provide secure access to a suite of cloud-based services and applications via Konica Minolta’s MarketPlace. This gives businesses the freedom to quickly tailor and easily harness each device’s capabilities. To ensure the highest security standards, Konica Minolta decided to partner with Bitdefender – a leader in IT security. The outcome is a unique and comprehensive security system with a built-in anti-virus solution on the device. With bizhub Secure, different security levels and access licences can be set to protect device memory and network settings.
At the same time, these devices retain their traditional role for printing, copying, scanning and fax – in a modern, user-friendly interface. In everyday work lives digitalisation is not rendering these functions obsolete, nor is the role of print vanishing. Rather, these media are complementing each other. A case-by-case, purpose-based evaluation amongst users is seen. In some cases, they prefer print – particularly when it comes to the perception of complex content. In other cases, digital visualisation has a clear advantage when it comes to dynamic or animated explanations, for example. Users today want to have the choice, and switching between these modes – print or digital – needs to be as seamless as possible.
