    SOLUTIONS U.S.A., INC. (KONICA MINOLTA) today announced the
    introduction of the new bizhubTM C252 color printer/copier/scanner/fax.
    An ideal replacement for Segment 2 monochrome and color multifunctional
    products (MFPs) with a letter-sized copy speed of 25 pages-per-minute
    (ppm) color and B&W, the compact bizhub C252 enables small- to
    medium-sized office workgroups to use the bizhub concept by allowing
    them to digitally share and distribute B&W and color documents,
    while controlling security.

    New Features
    Compared to its predecessor and other MFPs, the bizhub C252, despite its size, now features the following:
    * Two Available Finishers
    – Modular Finisher: flexible options allowing documents to be hole-punched, crease-folded or center stapled in an instant.

    Optional Booklet Finisher: for high demand booklet applications,
    allowing documents to be hole-punched, folded or center-stapled.
    Intelligent Manual Bypass: handles 24-1/4 lb. to 55-3/4 lb. specialty
    paper, OHP transparencies, postcards, ten #10 envelopes, and label
    * Standard Duplexing – prints or copies both sides of the sheet in one pass

    addition to the range of traditional fax features, the bizhub C252 also
    offers advanced fax capabilities and functions including both analog
    and digital fax transmission, Internet Fax, and between similarly
    equipped bizhub devices, IP Address Fax communication in color.
    Receive-to-box and Email, and fax forward functions with instant notice
    allows sharing of faxes via Email, FTP Site, SMB folders, and prevents
    unnecessary print jobs without additional cost as the distribution
    occurs via Internet.

    Key Standard Features
    The highly compact
    bizhub C252 offers the following standard features: laser print
    technology (featuring four lasers); PCL5e/c, PCL6 and PS3 emulation;
    networking; 25 originals-per-minute (OPM) color and B&W scanning; a
    40 GB hard disk drive; User Box functionality; the ability to handle up
    to 140 lb. index paper through the multi-purpose cassette, the
    intelligent manual bypass and the automatic duplex unit; KONICA MINOLTA
    Simitri® Color Polymerized Toner; User Authentication; and network
    management tools through the PageScope software suite.”With the huge
    success of the bizhub C250 last year in winning three coveted awards,
    we are confident that the additions to the bizhub C252 will achieve
    further acclaim and position the device as a multi-tasking tool for the
    modern office,” said Kevin P. Kern, Vice President, Product Planning
    bizhub C252 will benefit every office environment, and save businesses
    time and money.”"In a relatively short period of time, KONICA MINOLTA
    climbed to the top market share position in color* and we look to
    continue that momentum,” said Bill Brewster, Vice President, Marketing,
    KONICA MINOLTA BUSINESS SOLUTIONS U.S.A., INC. “The introduction of the
    bizhub C252 continues the legacy of KONICA MINOLTA award-winning color
    products, and will strengthen our hold on first place in color*.

    customer care establish truly beneficial customer relationships,
    enabling us to continue our growth momentum.”

    bizhub OP
    MINOLTA’s bizhub OP brings a continued level of performance and
    reliability to the bizhub C252 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 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 applications.

    Enhanced Imaging and Paper Handling
    256 levels of grayscale per pixel and 600 x 600 dpi print/copy
    resolution, the bizhub C252 produces clear text, sharp edges and
    consistent color. The bizhub C252 uses KONICA MINOLTA Simitri® Color
    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 one of the smallest 11″ x 17″ color tandem engines in the
    industry; a monthly maximum duty cycle of 75,000 impressions; standard
    paper capacity of 850 sheets, including a 100-sheet intelligent bypass
    tray; expandable paper capacity up to 3,350 sheets; and the ability to
    handle up to 140 lb. index through the multi-purpose cassette, the
    manual bypass, the standard automatic duplex unit, and the choice of a
    versatile modular finisher or advanced booklet finisher; the bizhub
    C252 is designed to handle the diverse color and B&W document needs
    of small- to medium-sized office workgroup environments such as
    Marketing, Finance and Human Resources.

    Optional Faxing Capabilities
    available for the new bizhub C252 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 C252
    supports Hard Disk Drive Overwrite and Job Erase, which automatically
    overwrites the hard disk drive after each job. In addition, the bizhub
    C252 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 C252′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
