Thursday, March 19, 2009

Press release from the issuing company

Ramsey, N.J. -- Konica Minolta Business Solutions U.S.A., Inc. (Konica Minolta), a leading provider of advanced imaging and networking technologies for the desktop to the print shop, today announced the general availability of the bizhub PRO C65hc, which produces vivid color quality that surpasses other color production print systems on the market.
The bizhub PRO C65hc ("hc" stands for High Chroma) incorporates innovative new toner technology enabling it to produce a wider color gamut than the typical four-color device in the marketplace.  The unprecedented spectrum of color caters to graphics professionals and print shops that require higher quality output.  Advertising agencies, graphics arts firms, creative design studios, photography studios, direct mail organizations, and commercial printers all stand to benefit from using the bizhub PRO C65hc.
"Konica Minolta has spent the past two years developing the bizhub PRO C65hc and the new High Chroma toner technology in order to meet our customers' most demanding color needs," said Kevin Kern, Vice President, Marketing, Konica Minolta Business Solutions U.S.A., Inc.  "Our customers rely on Konica Minolta for delivering great image quality, and the bizhub PRO C65hc delivers exceptional quality and produces images that practically jump off the page.  
The bizhub PRO C65hc gives organizations a considerable advantage for cross media communication, unifying corporate and brand identity across different communication platforms.  It produces brighter, more accurate color because it reproduces a larger portion of the sRGB color gamut than previously possible.  A critical competitive advantage for Konica Minolta, this eye-catching output is closer to what is displayed on sRGB monitors versus traditional four-color devices.
The bizhub PRO C65hc builds upon the solid foundation of superb image stability and higher productivity featured in Konica Minolta's flagship color production print system, the bizhub PRO C6501.  Delivering 65 color prints per minute, the bizhub PRO C65hc ensures higher productivity with three input trays for a standard 1,500-sheet capacity, a 250-sheet bypass tray, and an optional high capacity paper feed unit for a total of a 7,500-sheet capacity.
With the introduction of the bizhub PRO C65hc Konica Minolta continues to deliver industry-leading and environmentally friendly toner to the marketplace.  The proprietary Simitri HC toner generates less waste and emits less CO2, NO2, and SO2.  Additionally, the toner particles are consistently sized and smaller when compared to conventional toner size particles, thus give a smoother finish and sharper text.
The bizhub PRO C65hc features Konica Minolta's proprietary advanced color processing technology – S.E.A.D. (Screen-Enhancing Active Digital Process) – and combines an array of technical innovations to guarantee truly exceptional color reproduction at top speed.  To achieve such a high level of precision, Konica Minolta's fastest color production print system is equipped with a dual-beam laser unit and HI-PER ASICs (High-Performance Image Processing – Application Specific Integrated Circuits).  Additional quality features and technological innovations within S.E.A.D. technology are:
·         Dot Position Control for superb image reproduction and fine lines and text
·         Multi-bit screening for extremely natural reproduction of gradations
·         ITbit technology for precise slim text, reversed text and outlines
·         CRS technology to monitor and adjust engine conditions constantly for color stabilization of output quality
