RAMSEY, N.J. - March 31, 2004-To meet departmental print/copy/scan needs, as well as the needs of corporate reprographic departments and print for pay operations, Konica Minolta Business Solutions U.S.A., Inc. (KMBS), announces that they have two new multifunction print/copy/scan solutions, the Di7210 and Di5510, that will help these customers get their documents printed, copied and scanned quickly, efficiently and correctly - the first time around.

"KMBS engineers started with the award-winning Di650/551 engine, increased the speed to minimize unproductive waiting time, and added an array of flexible finishing options capable of producing a wide variety of documents in-house and on demand," said William H. Brewster, Jr., vice president, marketing, Konica Minolta Business Solutions U.S.A., Inc. "We're certain these products will meet the needs of our target customers."

Speed, Flexibility and Quality
The Di7210 and Di5510 combine durability, high quality output, and flexible paper handling and finishing options to allow customers to print, copy and scan documents in-house and on-demand more quickly and efficiently than ever before.  At 72 and 55 pages per minute, they can efficiently handle large jobs.  In addition, both the Di7210 and Di5510 have tandem capabilities for even faster output - 144 and110 pages per minute, respectively.

The Di7210/5510 is designed to bring out the best in any document with true 600 x 600 dpi print resolution - even up to 2,400 x 600 dpi with smoothing.  In addition, the Di7510/5510 use Simitri® Polymerized Toner. By using an emulsion polymerization process rather than the traditional pulverizing process, Simitri® toner particles are extremely small and uniform in diameter and shape. As a result they produce a consistently high and remarkably stable image quality for better fine line definition and smoother halftones. 

Operating the Di7210/5510 is easy, with touch-screen graphics and simplified text explaining each step. The Di7210/5510 is designed to maximize uptime with features including Konica Minolta's Advanced Continuous Toner™ (ACT) system that lets users add toner on the fly, a maximum paper supply of 7,600 sheets, a wide range of paper stocks from 13 lb. bond to 110 lb. index, and a monthly duty cycle of 300,000 pages.

Finishing Strong with a Choice of Professional Quality Finishers
The Di7210/5510 provide professional quality finishing capabilities that users can control from the desktop with the optional Pi7200e controller. Select from four finisher options with a range of stapling and folding capabilities, including eight stapling positions (up to 100 sheets), booklet, tri- and z-folding capabilities as well as selectable two- and three-hole punching. There is also an optional Post-Process Cover Inserter that supports the addition of pre-printed covers as well as post-process stapling, folding and/or 3-hole punching. 

Powerful Print and Scanning Flexibility Plus Job Handling Advantages with Optional Internal Fiery Pi7200e Controller
With the optional Pi7200e internal print controller, the Di7210/5510 gives users the power to do more with point-and-click control of scanning and printing right from the desktop at full-rated engine speeds. Because it is internal, the Pi7200e saves space giving users an all-in-one print solution with a smaller footprint.

In its standard configuration, the Pi7200e supports PCL printing only. The Pi7200e also allows customers to create finished booklets from the desktop, save and name job settings, hold the document at the control panel for additional "walk-up" control, select "proof" to print a single proof print before releasing the entire job and add custom watermarks.

The Pi7200e's PS/Scan Option adds even more capabilities. With this option, customers get Adobe® PostScript 3 printing capabilities, a 10 GB hard disk drive and scanning capabilities. In addition to the capabilities mentioned above, the PS/Scan option provides two-way communications that displays the hardware configuration including details about paper and toner levels. The PS/Scan option also supports the three most popular scanning methods: Scan-to-E-mail, FTP and HDD and the two most popular file formats: TIFF and PDF.

The PS/Scan Option also includes several free Fiery utilities such as Command WorkStation 4 and Fiery WebTools. Fiery Docbuilder® lets users preview, merge, edit and assemble finished documents more quickly. Fiery Freeform creates form "masters" to easily merge with database information for variable data printing. Fiery WebTools makes job management simple from any platform via a Java-enabled web browser - an ideal in-house printing solution for corporate Intranets.

PageScope Suite Provides Document Processing and Network Management Functions
Di7210/5510 customers also have access to PageScope, KMBS' powerful family of integrated software applications and utilities that help customers manage their documents and devices. Included in this suite of products is PageScope Net Care, which provides network administrators with detailed information about the operating conditions of all networked output devices containing a Management Information Base (MIB) from any web browser. This means that not only can administrators monitor their KMBS device, they can see any network printers from Lexmark or HP for example. Network administrators can also get total print and scan meter reads all from one PC. Using the information available from Net Care helps lower management costs and maintains optimum condition of the devices.

Also included is PageScope Web Connection, which allows users to instantly check device conditions on all network-connected KMBS printer/copiers from their desktop; PageScope Address Book Utility (ABU) which simplifies the administration and creation of Scan-to-E-mail addresses; PageScope Network Setup, to set up the controller from the desktop, and PageScope EMS Plug-Ins and NDPS Gateway, for seamless connections to Enterprise or Novell Distributed Print Services.

A single workstation license of PageScope Cabinet Pro is also included. PageScope Cabinet Pro is a personal document management application that enables users to display scanned documents in thumbnail form, group related documents, even use the included OCR (Optical Character Recognition) feature to perform full text search for information. OCR also converts image files to editable text or RTF files so information can be edited, annotated, updated or even incorporated into new documents. Additional PageScope Cabinet Pro licenses are available as an option.
PageScope Router is an optional software package that is available with the Di7210/5510. PageScope Router moves information faster by allowing customers to scan and distribute documents in a single step, sending documents to virtually any destination.
