Wide-Format Production Systems Feature Multifunction Capabilities and Advanced Connectivity
Konica Minolta Business Solutions U.S.A., Inc. (Konica Minolta) and KIP, a world leader in wide-format production technology, today announce the launch of the KIP 70 Series of wide-format monochrome production print systems. Comprised of the KIP 7170, KIP 7770 and KIP 7970, the new series offers increased print production capabilities by delivering mid- to high-volume output, with optional connectivity to wide format inkjet printers and/or Konica Minolta bizhub® MFPs, directly from the KIP control panel.
Featuring 2400 x 600 dpi print resolution, 24-Bit color scanning image quality, and fast imaging with KIP Tru•Speed technology, the KIP 70 series was designed to address the demands of high-volume print runs and compressed delivery times without compromising quality. New features include a large 12.1 inch multi-touch control panel that enables high-resolution output previews with zoom, rotate and pan capabilities. In addition, the new KIP Cloud Connect allows users to print from, or scan to, the cloud right from the control panel. This cloud-enabled function allows individual users or groups to create a link to cloud destinations for storage and collaboration, such as Google Drive, Dropbox, SkyDrive and more. The KIP 70 series also features a space saving design that permits next-to-wall installation and an innovative top-stacking configuration.
“As the only wide-format print systems in the industry that offer connectivity to both wide format inkjet printers and Konica Minolta bizhub MFPs, the KIP 70 series is a true document solution,” says Kevin Kern, senior vice president, Marketing, Konica Minolta Business Solutions U.S.A., Inc. “As customers look for ways to address the ever-expanding demands of their businesses, Konica Minolta ensures that customers can count on us for the networked solutions they need to remain competitive.”
