Konica Minolta bizhub C308 colour printer
Konica Minolta has launched two office colour multifunction printers (MFP), bizhub C368 and bizhub C308, which feature wireless, mobile and cloud technology allowing users to print wherever they like without the need for software drivers.
Both models come with Apple’s standard printing system, AirPrint, Google Cloud Print and the Mopria Alliance Print Service standard, meaning documents can be printed from any Apple or Android device, either wirelessly or via a local network connection.
The devices also feature the Konica Minolta Print Service facility so that documents can be printed directly to the printers via a wireless local area network (LAN) or from an Android device. With wireless LAN support the printers become a wireless LAN access point offering direct wireless connection to mobile devices. With a new Mobile Touch Area added to the operation panel of both printers, mobile device connection is also possible via near field communication (NFC) and Bluetooth LE (low energy) technology.
The printers’ multitouch user interface (UI), which is accessible via the 9″ operation panel screen, can also be used to display and print out web page contents.
The printers also include additional paper feed options that increase their paper capacity to 6650 sheets. The bizhub C368 model has a print speed capacity of 36 colour or black and white pages per minute, while the bizhub C308 has a capacity of up to 30 colour or black and white pages per minute.
