SINGAPORE, April 30, 2012 /PRNewswire-Asia/ — Konica Minolta Business Solutions Asia Pte Ltd. is proud to announce the bizhub C754/C654 Colour MFP (Multifunctional Printers) providing print, copy, fax and scan all-in-one system. The bizhub C754/C654 is also the first MFP to feature Konica Minolta INFO-Palette design, a 23cm touch screen interface providing users with the “flick & drag” operation commonly found in today’s mobile devices. Users can now work faster and smarter with simplified menus and customisable icons.

“The bizhub C754/C654 offer broad range of innovative applications, important options, enhanced security and software that’s essential to the working professional and business,” said Mr. Daisuke Mori, Managing Director for Asian region. “And the speed and power raise the bar in MFP convenience.”

With fast output speed of up to 60 ppm colour/75 ppm black and white on the bizhub C754, and 60 ppm colour/65 ppm black and white on the bizhub C654, this new series can produce customised, full-colour content in-house and on-demand, saving both time and money. For professional settings such as healthcare, legal and education applications, the bizhub C754/654 series enables high-speed image reading, and seamless integration with industry-standard software for scanning and converting records to electronic forms. The bizhub C754/C654 series also includes standard single-pass dual scanning, powerful finishing options, flexible paper handling and spectacular high-impact colour, making it ideal for high-volume document applications of all types.

Konica Minolta’s bizhub security and other advanced options, including Biometric Authentication and IC authentication Cards, provide enhanced security and protects sensitive documents. For the environmentally conscious, Konica Minolta’s exclusive Simitri® HD polymerized toner, built-in Emperon® print system, bizhub OP (Open Platform) technology and PageScope® Enterprise Suite enables the bizhub C754/C654 series to achieve one of the lowest power consumption rate in its class — even lower than the standard specified by Energy Star certification. The INFO-Palette design also features a unique Eco-indicator that enables monitoring of paper, toner and energy usage by device, account or end-user to promote greater cost-consciousness.

Combining innovative new design and functionality features, the bizhub C754/C654 series brings the two key elements of speed and high-impact colour to businesses of any size, while also offering a broad range of advanced capabilities that address the needs of the entry level production user to redefine productivity.

Track Topic Highlights include:

— Fundamentals of digital Marketing Workshops — Digital Trends, Tools & Technologies — Digital Adoption and Execution Trends of Emerging Markets — The Publisher’s View on Digital — Forecast of the Digital Age — The Monopoly of Digitally Integrated Platforms
