    Konica Minolta Launches the bizhub 360
    Minolta Business Solutions U.S.A., Inc. (Konica Minolta) today
    introduced the all-new bizhubTM 360 that will provide all-in-one
    capabilities (printer/copier/scanner/fax) and serve as an ideal
    replacement for Segment 3 monochrome multifunctional products (MFPs) to
    small and medium-sized office workgroups. With advanced security and
    data handling features and an efficient 36 pages-per-minute (ppm) black
    and white output, the compact bizhub 360 enables workgroups to
    digitally share and distribute black and white documents through a
    secure network-enabled device.”With the addition of the bizhub 360 to
    the Konica Minolta line of products, we are confident that the bizhub
    360′s impressive combination of speed, features, ease-of-use, and
    flexible multi-functionality will fit into a very wide range of
    markets,” said Kevin P. Kern, vice president, product planning and
    development, Konica Minolta Business Solutions U.S.A., Inc. “The bizhub
    360 will allow every office to operate more efficiently and

    Key Standard Features
    The bizhub 360
    offers the following standard features: robust monthly duty cycle of
    150,000 pages; monochrome copying up to 36 ppm; rapid black and white
    scanning up to 70 originals-per-minute (OPM); push scanning to multiple
    destinations (Email, HDD, FTP, and PC); User Box functionality with
    password protection; Konica Minolta Simitri® Polymerized Toner; 1200
    dpi equivalent print and copy resolution; and a three-way tilting,
    ease-of-use control panel. Network printing is facilitated via the
    optional IC-204 imaging controller.

    bizhub OP
    Minolta’s bizhub OP (Operating Platform) brings a continued level of
    performance and reliability to the bizhub 360 by delivering a common
    user experience, increased manageability, superior print performance,
    improved scanning functionality and enhanced security. The three major
    components of bizhub OP are the bizhub Architecture, the Emperon Print
    System and bizhub Open API. The bizhub architecture removes the need
    for separate functional boards through the utilization of common system
    software that drives all functions – copy, print, scan and fax.The
    bizhub 360′s architecture also eliminates hardware-based functions, and
    shares the device’s CPU and memory for a seamless MFP user experience.
    The Emperon Print System provides for total integration of document
    output management with a consistent user interface and functionality
    across future Konica Minolta products. In addition, the bizhub Open API
    will enable control of both the print and scan functions from external

    Enhanced Imaging and Paper Handling
    256 levels of grayscale per pixel and 600 x 600 dpi print/copy
    resolution, the bizhub 360 produces clear text, sharp edges and
    increased halftone definition. The bizhub 360 uses Konica Minolta
    Simitri Polymerized Toner, which maintains the uniformity of the toner
    particles for more even distribution, significantly better halftone
    definition and better solid fills.With these image quality features,
    plus 5,650-sheet maximum paper capacity; the ability to handle up to
    110 lb. index from bypass and copy, scan, or duplex originals; and the
    choice of a versatile modular finisher or advanced booklet finisher,
    the bizhub 360 is designed to handle the heavy workload of black and
    white document needs for small- to medium-sized office workgroups. The
    bizhub 360′s ease of use in multi-model environments is extremely
    beneficial in large organizations that have a variety of MFP’s

    Optional Faxing Capabilities
    Also available for
    the new bizhub 360 is the optional 33.6 Kbps Super G3 analog Fax Kit.
    The optional fax capabilities include: 32 MB of memory, transmissions
    in B&W up to 11″ x 17″, JBIG data compression, up to 600 x 600 fax
    TX resolution, separate scanning, duplex TX and RX, mixed original
    faxing, PC faxing, memory reception and delayed transmission.

    Advanced Security and Data Handling Features
    document security and document management playing a significant role in
    the technology acquisition decision-making process, the bizhub 360
    supports Konica Minolta’s award-winning Hard Disk Drive Overwrite
    security feature and Job Erase, which automatically overwrites the hard
    disk drive after each job. In addition, the bizhub 360 offers User
    Authentication to protect a user job by prohibiting its modification or
    deletion. With User Authentication, it is also possible to enable or
    disable each user’s access to the device based on function – copy,
    print, scan, and fax.The bizhub 360′s User Box functionality, with its
    PageScope Box Operator software, supports each of the device’s
    functions – copy, print, scan and fax. With a total of 1,000 user boxes
    and the ability to store up to 3,000 documents, users can manage
    individual User Boxes, create public and private User Boxes, assign
    passwords, and restrict the number of files stored.

    sales, authorized dealer and value-added reseller channels. The
    manufacturer’s suggested retail price (MSRP) for the bizhub 360 is
