3rd gen of high-chroma production printing systems
Konica Minolta Business Solutions India Pvt Ltd has introduced the bizhub PRESS 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 machine was recently displayed at Rajasthan Photo Fair-2015 organised by All Rajasthan Photographic Association, Jaipur.
“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 its 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 C71hc,” explains Yuji Nakata, managing director, Konica Minolta India.
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 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.
The machine is more reliable in colour reproduction with advance technologies, better colour management and has a higher productivity than its predecessor. The new machine has a higher life of its consumable parts which keeps it running for more than its earlier model. The reliability on the heavier media is improved by increasing the turning radius.
“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 PRESSC71hc will easily print even colours that until now have proven difficult to reproduce, such as vivid pinks and purples, and different shades of green and the RGB photographs” concluded Yuji Nakata.
Another asset of the bizhub PRESS C71hc is their wide range of finishing capabilities and its combination with a workflow software Print Xpress. Features like booklet production, perfect binding, and auto ring binding and of course the extensive stacking capacity of up to 10,000 sheets allows one-step printing and finishing without manual intervention.
