Konica Minolta bizhub SwingVision Sponsorship and newest TV Commercials to Run January through August 2009

Ramsey, N.J. - January 31, 2009 - Konica Minolta Business Solutions U.S.A., Inc. (Konica Minolta), a leading provider of advanced imaging and networking technologies for the desktop to the print shop, announced that for the 6th consecutive year its latest television ad campaign will be broadcast during CBS Sports' coverage of the PGA TOUR, and that it will once again be the exclusive sponsor of the high popular Konica Minolta bizhub SwingVision feature.  Konica Minolta's television ad campaign will begin airing during this weekend's FBR Open, and will run through the Barclays Classic in August.

Featuring a new slogan of Count On Konica Minolta, our new ad campaign, which debuted earlier this month's Konica Minolta Gator Bowl, focuses on delivering a reliable, trustworthy solution that exceeds customers' copier product and service needs.  Viewers will come to know personalities Bev and Milt, who quickly learn the value of Konica Minolta's award-winning line of MFPs and printers and come to rely on the certainty and trustworthiness that comes from a partnership with Konica Minolta.

And once again, we have partnered with CBS Sports to sponsor the award-winning "Konica Minolta bizhub SwingVision" - their high-tech, super slow-motion swing analysis.  Three times during each Saturday and Sunday broadcast, you will see and hear the Konica Minolta brand name connected to this unique and highly popular PGA Tour feature.

Below is the broadcast schedule, so check out our new ads and the latest SwingVision installments of today's best players.
