Share information with a team – Expanded Box Function

The new bizhub’s hard disk drive Box function allows users to save scan, copy, print or fax data to the Box. It also permits boxes to be assigned to individuals, project teams, departments or themes for more reliable storage (up to 3,000 documents or 10,000 pages), seamless distribution and easier sharing of knowledge. Now, the Box also includes functionality that allows users to change print and send settings for files residing in the Box?switch from colour to black & white, change resolution, enlarge/reduce and more.

New Colour Internet Fax- Send colour faxes economically

The bizhub’s standard Colour Internet Fax allows you to cost-efficiently send a colour or black & white fax to any MFP that supports the Profile C standard, even machines outside of the intranet. Because this method uses the internet, no additional costs are associated with it.

Search and edit scanned PDFs – New Searchable PDFs

Normally, the text of a scanned document cannot be searched. Our Searchable PDF feature uses OCR (Optical Character Recognition) to turn any scanned document into a searchable one. Perfect for quickly finding text in large documents, or to cut and paste text from a Searchable PDF to create new documents.

Re-edit PDF images and text – New Outline PDF

By selecting Outline PDF when scanning a document, target images are divided into photo areas and text areas, and outline conversion is performed on the text areas. This makes the text easier to read, the images crisper and the document nearly as easy to handle as a Compact PDF. Image quality and data size of the photo areas can be finely adjusted in user mode, enabling the creation of highly-precise PDFs. The outlined data can also be conveniently utilised in graphics programs such as Adobe Illustrator.

Konica Minolta C452 New Outline PDF

Browse Web pages on the control panel – Upgraded AJAX-Supported Web Browser

Our new i-Option, Web browser function can now utilise Web pages built using AJAX (Asynchronous JavaScript and XML). Many Web sites today, like Google Maps, use AJAX programming to asynchronously retrieve data without altering the display of the page being viewed.

Konica Minolta C452 Upgraded AJAX-Supported Web Browser


Select your i-Option functions based on your individual usage needs and environment. i-Option helps you enhance your bizhub’s capabilities by offering greater convenience and customisation. Utilise the bizhub’s control panel as a general purpose Web browser* that enables PDF files to be previewed, downloaded and printed without a PC. The Image Panel function* divides the control panel into three areas?input, edit and output and allows each to be customised based on your needs, thus improving your workflow.


Send scans with one-push ease – New Scan to Me and Scan to Home

Scanning to yourself is now easier than ever with Scan to Me. If user authentication is set, selecting the”Me”one-touch key in the address book allows scan data to be sent to the user’s own e-mail address. Use the Scan to Home feature to send the data to a registered PC. These simple but useful security features allow administrators to limit or disable any scan and send traffic outside of these ranges, effectively restricting where scans can be sent.

Oversee MPF use and costs in detail – New Log Management

Our new log management features help you better manage usage and costs for your office’s new bizhub. The log has been expanded to allow logs to be compiled for counts and accounts, as well as the existing capability for audits. This means that the bizhub doesn’t just record which users have performed which jobs. It also records paper size, number of copies made and other useful cost and resource management information.

Synchronise IC card use with security – Improved Non-Contact IC Card Authentication

Perfect for individual user authentication, IC cards allow your organisation to restrict copy, print, scan and fax functions. For the new bizhub, a function has been added that allows LEGIC*, MIFARE* and FeliCa* (SSFC Format / FCF Format) cards to be used to access data in high-security areas, making it possible to perform high-level, multi-functional authentication management, such as synched operation with room entry and exit management.

Konica Minolta C452 Improved Non-Contact IC Card Authentication

Install advanced security at low cost – Improved Biometric Finger-Vein Authentication

The bizhub’s finger vein authentication uses images of finger vein patterns captured by scanning the finger. This biometric measurement uses an internal characteristic as identification, and is nearly impossible to falsify. The unit is remarkably easy to install as an option and now offers improved authentication accuracy and a more ergonomic and efficient shape that blends in with the design of the MFP.

Konica Minolta C452 Improved Biometric Finger-Vein Authentication

Unite advanced security with easy printing – ID & Print

Working in conjunction with finger-vein and IC card authentication, our easy-to-use ID & Print feature provides you with a secure printing environment. After sending a document from your PC to the bizhub, simply touch the bizhub with your finger or IC card to automatically begin printing – there’s no need to enter a password. If you choose, you can also use the ID & Print feature without the biometric unit or IC cards by entering your password directly on the control panel.

Prevent prohibited copying – Copy Security (Copy Guard and Password Copy)

By copying or printing documents with a special security pattern, C652/C552/C452/C652DS’s Copy Guard prevents unauthorised copies from being made on the C652/C552/C452/C652DS. The Password Copy feature allows this protection to be cancelled by entering a password before attempting to re-copy the document.

Connect the MFP to a secure network – New IEEE 802.1X Compatibility

The new bizhub now comes with a client module supporting the IEEE 802.1X authentication standard. This enables you to connect to secure networks, effectively shutting off all communication from unauthorised clients, and only allowing authorised users to connect.

Supervise security and control costs – PageScope Enterprise Suite

The Web-based PageScope Enterprise Suite provides you with solutions to empower your MFP as well as your business by offering centralised management of accounting, authentication and device information. The suite includes Account Manager, Authentication Manager, My Panel Manager and Net Care Device Manager, and systematically links applications, integrating and sharing them seamlessly on one server. This results in much easier operation and better-integrated management.

ISO15408 (EAL Level 3) Certification

These products comply with the security requirements of ISO15408 (EAL Level 3).


High Image Quality

The new bizhub employs a new MFP Controller – the heart of the MFP – and a new image ASIC (application-specific integrated circuit). Due to these new technologies, overall image quality is markedly improved.

Higher Productivity

The new bizhub enhances productivity with high-speed printing, copying and scanning, as well as significantly reduced product downtime. To start with, the machine’s warm-up time has been greatly decreased*. The new bizhub also boasts one of the fastest first copy times on the market. Furthermore, these machines can promptly handle multiple jobs simultaneously such as fax and scan, scan and print, and print and save to Box. The C452 also has a sheet-through high-speed duplex Automatic Document Feeder (ADF) allowing colour document to be scanned at the same high speed as black & whites, and large volumes of documents to be converted into electronic data. The ADF can also handle postcard-size paper, and scan thick and thin paper (35 to 210g/m2) at the same speed as plain paper.

Ensure quality printing in various OS – Upgraded Emperon Print System

Konica Minolta’s proprietary Emperon printer controller boasts a host of new features, functions and compatibilities designed to increase print performance, making it our best Emperon ever.

• Black Over Print*  This new feature helps ensure that areas meant to be in black are not inaccurately rendered in white – a potential problem when printing black on colours during 4-colour printing.
• Auto-Trapping*   In Auto-Trapping Mode, the white borders between colours are printed using an optimal colour from surrounding colours, eliminating incorrect registration.
• PPML-Variable Data Printing (VDP)*  The new bizhub now supports PPML (Personalised Print Markup Language), a technology designed for high-speed variable printing output.
• Support for PDF 1.7  The new bizhub supports the PDF 1.7 version. This enhanced PDF version offers more interactive printing, security and CMM (Colour Management Module) features.

Print high volume documents quickly – Large-Capacity Paper Supply and Varied Paper Compatibility

The new bizhub holds up to 3,650 sheets of paper. With the optional Side Paper Deck LU-301, the bizhub’s capacity increases to 6,650 sheets! The bizhub handles a wide range of paper size from A6 to A3 wide, with our new, optional, large-capacity LU-204 also boasting an impressive A3 wide capacity. Finally, the bizhub also accommodates thick paper up to 256g/m2 in all but its multiple bypass tray, where it handles paper as thick as 300g/m2.
