Higher quality, lower cost – and stronger environmental protection.
The Konica Minolta Bizhub C284 represents a new generation of Konica Minolta document solutions, redesigned to incorporate our latest advances in environmental protection.
The newest generation of Konica Minolta Bizhub C284’s exclusive Simitri® HD toner formulation uses biomass plant based materials to reduce environmental impact and fuses to paper at lower temperatures to reduce power consumption. In fact, all three models consume less power – among one of the lowest power consumption rates in their class, even lower than the standards specified by Energy Star certification. Energy-saving modes include an Optimize Power Consumption mode that automatically sets correct on/off/standby status for workdays, weekends and holidays.
To keep you aware of environmental impact, the control panel features an Eco-indicator screen that allows you to monitor paper, toner and energy usage by device, account or end-user. A Print Preview Driver lets you preview documents before you print, reducing the need to print, check and reprint. Blank page removal during scanning or copying saves more paper. Energy-efficient LED lamps for low-cost scanning and extensive use of recycled materials in construction give these bizhub models an even smaller environmental footprint.
Our Clean Planet program also provides cost-free recycling for all Konica Minolta consumables, including toner cartridges and bottles, imaging units, developer and drums – with prepaid shipping labels and cost-free packaging. And our Eco Vision 2050 project is committed to reducing CO2 emissions by 80% over 2005 levels, minimizing greenhouse gases that may contribute to global warming.
Powerful productivity in any network environment.
Konica Minolta’s exclusive Emperon® print system is built in, giving the Konica Minolta Bizhub C284 immediate PCL6/PS3 emulation and native XPS functionality. With the universal printer driver, you can manage your printing using standard familiar commands – even first-time users and temps can be productive right from the start.
Microsoft Office Open XML support lets you perform fast drag-and-drop printing of the latest Microsoft Office files, including docx, xlsx, and pptx. You can print and save to/from !ash memory devices using a convenient USB connector on your bizhub. You can also take advantage of new Cloud-services-based applications* from the bizhub MarketPlace for fast, flexible document storage and retrieval from any location: Google, SharePoint, etc.
Built-in PostScript 3 emulation features a more versatile ICC pro”le for specialized or detailed color settings. The PostScript driver includes Auto Trapping and Black Overprint modes. Sophisticated color conversion imaging and a scanner with enhanced dynamic range enable your prints and copies to capture more consistent dark colors and light greens.
Innovative print functions to do more – and do it faster.
The Konica Minolta Bizhub C284 also incorporate many of our latest printing innovations to speed your workflow. Warm-up in less than 20 seconds and “rst-copy output in 7 seconds or less helps you start work more quickly. Fast internal processing keeps print jobs moving even when they include highly detailed color graphics and halftone images.
Proof Copy/Print lets you run off a quick test page so you can check your settings before starting your entire print run. Carbon Copy printing saves time by outputting the same data continuously from multiple paper trays in different paper weights or colors – for example, white for immediate distribution, yellow for forwarding, green for filing.
The Konica Minolta Bizhub C284 can also accommodate a wider array of media sizes and weights, with support ranging from thin 14 lb. bond paper (52 gsm) to thick 100 lb. cover stock (300 gsm). You’ll be able to print 11” x 17” full-bleed originals on 12” x 18” paper to preserve margins and crop-marks. Tab Printing support lets you print tabbed pages from the multiple bypass tray – even use interleave function to insert tabs into healthcare records, legal case files, student information binders, human resource packets or training manuals. Two standard paper drawers and a 150-sheet multiple bypass tray can be augmented by a Paper Feed Cabinet to raise maximum paper capacity to 3,650 sheets – enough to handle document traffic on busy days with less reloading. You’ll have standard 100% duplex productivity at rated engine speed, producing two-sided prints and copies without the need to re-insert originals.
Enhanced security to protect sensitive business data.
To meet rising demands for protecting both documents and devices, the Konica Minolta Bizhub C284 are designed with powerful security safeguards and systems – including an optional built-in IC card reader for fast, simple ID card authorization. All models are currently in evaluation to meet strict ISO 15408 security standards – and all accept a wide array of specialized options to “t the needs of your application, including Biometric Authentication, input for HID Proximity Cards, iClass Cards and Magnetic Stripe Cards, and CAC/PIV Card support.
Konica Minolta’s bizhub SECURE, a professional security service, provides a powerful level of lock-down protections that guard your bizhub from unauthorized operation and access.
You can initiate encrypted PDF work!ow to protect information passing from PCs to networked bizhub devices. IP filtering registers IP addresses of the PCs on your network. An optional Copy Guard system can require password access to make copies. HDD Lock can apply password protection to your bizhub hard disk drive.
To protect information once stored on your bizhub hard disk drive, the Job Erase function automatically overwrites your HDD up to three times – meeting the criteria of DoD 55220.22-M (Department of Defense) and NAVSO P-5239-26 (US Navy). And when your bizhub is reassigned to another location or removed from service, HDD Sanitizing can overwrite data in eight different modes so no sensitive information is compromised.
