Konica Introduces The 7135 Workgroup Document System

Konica Business Technologies, Inc. (Konica), the innovation leader in digital imaging solutions and a subsidiary of Konica Corporation, today introduced the Konica 7135 Workgroup Document System. The Konica 7135
combines functionality with productivity in one of the most easy to set up and configure packages available on the market. Providing print and copy speeds of 35ppm, up to 288MB of copier memory for increased multi-task capacity, customizable paper handling options and enhanced finishing capabilities, the 7135 is ideal for today's demanding workgroup-oriented office environments.


The 7135 replaces the existing Konica 7035, offering even greater reliability and print quality than its predecessor. The new 7135 delivers more consistent, higher quality output than other devices in its class with Konica's breakthrough Simitri(TM) Polymerized Toner, which maintains the uniformity of the toner particles to produce clean, crisp 600 x 600 dpi
resolution with an offset-like look. Additional improvements to the 7135 include: scan-to-email, scan-to-hard drive and scan-to-FTP capabilities and an optional dual-line fax kit with 33.6Kbps high-speed fax modem, JBIG compression for added speed and fax quality and 4MB of fax memory that is upgradeable to 12MB.

The 7135 is built around Konica's proven engine design, and utilizes the popular architecture of Konica's 7022 and 7130 Workgroup Document Systems - a compact footprint and low operating noise level coupled with the ability to copy, print, scan and fax from a single machine. Delivering a standard three-way paper supply, 50-sheet bypass tray and dual 500-sheet universal paper drawers, 7135 users can maintain multiple paper sizes and types at
all times, thereby reducing the need to change or reload paper for virtually any copy or print task. Optional drawer bases that provideeither additional dual 500-sheet trays or a single 1,500-sheet tray further

increase the 7135's total online capacity to 2,550. Additionally, the

7135's scanning production can be maximized with the use of the optional

RADF. The RADF utilizes "scan-once, print-many" technology and handles up

to 50 sheets of same or mixed-size originals for diverse scanning needs.





Konica's 7135 also boasts an embedded IP-423 print controller featuring a

300 MHz processor, maximum memory of 192MB, and optional 2GB hard drive;

and the graphical IP Connexion(TM) Web Utility 2.0. In addition, the 7135

delivers finishing options for a wide range of office workgroup or

department needs. The Internal Tray Option (IT-101) offers modes for

non-sort, rotation sort, group mode and rotation group mode. The Finisher

Option (FS-107) provides even more features for increased effectiveness -

initially equipped with two trays, it can be expanded with up to two

additional trays for modes including: non-sort, sort, staple sort or group

sort.





"The 7135 represents an ideal multi-function solution for workgroup

environments. By carefully looking at real world applications for models

in this speed class and the marketplace's demands, Konica has developed a

solution with an outstanding feature set that hits the market's sweet

spot," said William H. Brewster, vice president, marketing, Konica Business

Technologies, Inc. "Considering the popularity of the 7135's predecessors,

which represent a revolutionary new design coupled with 4-in-1

functionality, we believe that the 7135 will be a strong player in this

competitive marketplace."

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

KONICA EXPANDS ITS COLOR IMAGING LINE-UP WITH THE KONICA 7820 AND 7830 MID-RANGE COLOR PRINTERS

Ideal for Workgroups and Departmental Use, Konica's New Digital Color Printers Boast High-Speed and Superb Image Quality

WINDSOR, Conn. — January 22, 2003 — Konica Business Technologies, Inc. (Konica), the innovation leader in digital imaging solutions and a subsidiary of Konica Corporation, today introduced two new color imaging systems — the 7820 and 7830 series digital printers. Further expanding Konica's family of color products, the 7820 and 7830 Color Imaging Systems deliver impressive print speeds of 20 and 30 pages per minute (ppm) in color, and 24 and 37ppm in B&W, respectively. Built with advanced LED technology, the 7820 and 7830 are productivity printers, providing superb image quality, vibrant and accurate color output, and reliable high-speed operation to the small workgroup and departmental environments.

Ideal replacements for B&W printers or slower laser-based color printers, the Konica digital printers make time and cost savings possible by providing the option of bringing short-run color print jobs in-house. Fast and reliable, the 7820 and 7830 are available with up to 1200 x 1200 dpi resolution. Large format printing capabilities enable the new printers to produce high quality prints of complex documents such as engineering drawings, and signage and banners on up to 12" x 47.24" stock. The printers' media handling capabilities enable precise output of presentations, spreadsheets, transparencies, labels and forms. High print speeds, fast first print times, and flexible network connectivity for on-demand printing make the 7820 and 7830 strong contributors to office productivity and workflow.

"Konica's introduction of the faster and more flexible 7820 and 7830 systems strengthens our position in the rapidly evolving color printing market, and at the same time further defines our leadership in providing solutions to a diverse customer base, from large print shops to the small office," said William H. Brewster, vice president, marketing, Konica Business Technologies, Inc. "Competitive price points, coupled with superior image quality and substantial standard features like duplexing and industry-leading image resolution, make these machines strong contenders in a growing marketplace."

Replacing Konica's popular 7812 and 7821 Color Imaging Systems, the 7820 and 7830 generate quick, precise color printing with the incorporation of advanced single-pass color® digital technology, utilizing four in-line digital LED printheads and image drums to speed the page through and apply four colors in a single pass. New auto color balancing technology minimizes user maintenance by self-diagnosing the printheads and consumables usage on a periodic basis — for instance, when the toner has been changed or after a certain number of prints — and self-adjusting the settings for continued optimal output without the need to print color scales or test sheets. Additionally, the 7820 and 7830 offer increased engine performance with powerful 450 MHz and 600 MHz processors, new standard job accounting software, and improved monthly page volumes of up to 100,000 pages for the 7820 and 150,000 pages for the 7830.

In addition, enhanced duplexing capabilities — standard on the 7820dxn and 7830dxn models — reduce paper and consumables use, while lowering per-page print costs. Both models also provide superior paper handling, with 630/650-sheet standard and 1,690/2,850-sheet maximum paper capacity, and the ability to support a wide variety of stock right out of the box. Both the 7820 and 7830 incorporate improved auto media detect technology, eliminating the need for users to navigate multiple print management windows at the desktop by automatically recognizing available paper stock and adjusting print speeds as needed for each individual print job.

Highlighted 7820/7830 Features
· Print speeds of 20ppm color and 24ppm B&W for the 7820 series
· Print speeds of 30ppm color and 37ppm B&W for the 7830 series
