Konica Minolta presents 3rd generation of high-chroma production printing systems

| 1 July 2015

Konica Minolta Business Solutions Europe (Konica Minolta) introduces the bizhub PRESS/PRO C71hc to provide enhanced printing services based on the advanced colour reproduction capabilities of the manufacturer’s proprietary high-chroma toner. Truly amazing quality results can be achieved for photo books and photo merchandise, promotional materials, and other sophisticated print products.

"The colour production printing market is steadily growing and there can be no doubt that RGB data and the high-chroma technology will continue to increase in importance in the future. In this context, Konica Minolta is proud to introduce the 3rd generation of high-chroma products with the new bizhub PRESS and PRO C71hc" – explains Karl-Friedrich Edenhuizen, Product Manager Production Printing, Konica Minolta Business Solutions Europe.

With the growing need to print product images or photo albums from digital cameras, but also with the demand to combining online with printed communication, the requirement for the accurate reproduction of RGB workflows is rapidly increasing. But due to the narrower colour range of a conventional CMYK printer, some of the colours seen in real life or on a monitor may change in print or appear less vivid. Konica Minolta now presents the professional solution with the bizhub PRESS/PRO C71hc: The high-chroma toner of these colour production systems has an extended colour range that is much closer to sRGB than that of conventional CMYK toners. Colours can be printed virtually as they are displayed for example on a calibrated monitor.

"Today’s communication channels cover print, online and mobile communication, so that professionals are changing their colour management from traditional CMYK to sRGB. With our new generation of Konica Minolta’s production printing systems, we don’t just offer our customers impressive colour reproduction over a wide range. We enable colour users to get the best out of photos, printing them in a fantastic quality. The bizhub PRESS/PRO C71hc will easily print even colours that until now have proven difficult to reproduce, such as vivid pinks and purples, and different shades of green," concludes Edenhuizen.Another asset of the bizhub PRESS/PRO C71hc is their wide range of finishing capabilities. Features like booklet production, perfect binding, auto ring binding and of course the extensive stacking capacity of up to 10,000 sheets allow one-step printing and finishing without manual intervention.
