The Next Step
 The Konica Minolta C451 multifunction imaging system features network printer, copier and network scanner functionality and can print or copy in colour and black and white at 45 ppm. This offers the same black and white cost per print as a conventional black and white copier-printer which means customers can upgrade to the bizhub C451 without paying a premium on black and white output, while getting the versatility of a true colour multifunction system.For access by users of all abilities the design also includes a full colour 8.5-inch display, with a touch screen that can be both rotated and tilted to suit a desired position. The screen also features thumbnails of each job in the user box for easy recall and rerouting.The bizhub C451 uses new Induction Fusing technology for lower temperature fusing, reducing energy consumption and producing less paper curl than conventional fusing. This also gives the C451 a warm-up time of only 85 seconds from cold and an amazing 12 seconds from standby. In addition, the machine benefits from using Konica Minolta's patented Simitri HD Polymerised Toner with smaller, smoother, more uniform toner particles for more even distribution, significantly better fine line definition, and better solid fills.The C451 features new slit scan technology so it can scan originals at the rate of up to 70 colour or mono sheets per minute at 300 dpi resolution. For customers using archiving software this allows high speed and accurate scanning of documents. Document scans can also be sent externally via email, to an FTP server or to a user's personal folder on their desktop.In common with all Konica Minolta's bizhub systems the C451 uses bizhub open platform (OP) architecture and features the very latest Emperon image controller. This provides a unified driver for the print and scan functions, as well as straightforward network integration. The image controller supports PCL6c and PostScript Level 3 printing as standard.A 60 Gigabyte hard drive provides up to 1,000 User Boxes. Boxes can be designated for personal access and can store print, scan, copy and fax jobs; jobs can be moved or copied from one box to another. The main display shows a colour thumbnail of the front page of stored jobs. Access to Personal User Boxes can be protected by a box user authentication password. The bizhub C451 is available with a range of high productivity finishing options including sorting, stapling and saddle stitching, as well as two and four hole punching capabilities.
