bizhub PRO 754 5
S.E.A.D. As proprietary Konica Minolta technology, S.E.A.D. stands for “Screen-Enhancing Active Digital Process” and combines various technical innovations to guarantee impeccable black & white reproduction at top speed. Konica Minolta’s advanced processing technology includes these important capabilities: – 600 x 1,800 dpi print resolution With the physical print resolution of 600 x 1,800 dpi, bizhub PRO 754 offers high-quality output for images and graphics, and smooth gradation. For the extra support of fine line reproduction and the very small characters in maps and similar documents, for example, the bizhub PRO 754 can be switched to 1,200 x 1,200 dpi. – Screen technology Depending on the different image objects on one page – photos, graphics and text – bizhub PRO 754 automatically applies the best print screening to ensure smooth, even or sharp reproduction for a perfect match of the print data. – ITbit technology Outline processing improves the appearance of characters by thinning them so they do not appear fat. Contour processing helps to reproduce white characters on backgrounds with ideal proportions and reduces jagged edges of half-tone characters. – Image stability Short-interval stability control monitors image consistency on the bizhub PRO 754 during continuous printing without affecting performance. Corrections are fully automatic and improve the stability of the image quality, while the whole process considerably enhances production efficiency. To avoid production interruptions, the stability system analyses incoming print jobs and carries out stabilisation at the start or at the end of the print run. – Retention and stability In addition to internal monitoring, the system also checks for ambient changes to temperature and humidity as these might influence the print quality. The bizhub PRO 754 automatically adapts to any changes that are detected and thus keeps its stability over the complete print run.
High-speed scanning As essential input technology, scanning simplifies and streamlines the capturing, distribution and sharing of information. Its high-speed duplex scanner makes the bizhub PRO 754 an ideal central input tool, e.g. to capture paper-based information for use in internal workflows, for efficient document archiving, and integration into Document Management Systems. The bizhub PRO 754 scans up to 180 images per minute in colour and black and white and, combined with Konica Minolta’s versatile capturing applications, is perfect for high-volume document scanning. The functionality includes scan to e.g. email, FTP, SMB and user box; and the scan formats JPEG, multi-page PDF and PDF/A, XPS and TIFF as well as compact PDF and compact XPS. The latter provide considerably reduced file sizes that help to ease network traffic and speed up communication.
Simitri® HD polymerised toner As an essential requirement in production printing, the bizhub PRO 754 delivers a superior image quality as well as impressive black density with their unique Simitri® HD polymerised toner. Simitri® HD also ensures unparalleled image stability and with its reduced fusing temperature supports a truly impressive range of media.

bizhub PRO 754 BUSINESS OPPORTUNITIES The production print market is undergoing significant changes today. Accelerated by the recent economic downturn, the number of printing businesses is in decline, total print volume is decreasing and an increasing number of print applications are being transferred to electronic media. Informed printing companies know that they need to grow their print business, increase profit margins and generate new revenues. To support customers in achieving this, Konica Minolta has launched Digital1234; a comprehensive business development program that puts the focus upon the customer’s needs to enable his business. The key question is ‘How can we enable your business today?’ The solution to most business challenges can simply be answered with “by saving you money, increasing your profit, adding new services and making you more productive.” The Digital1234 business building program has been designed for simplicity and encourages businesses to take an opportunity-based approach – to start driving a better business. Using four practical steps the customer is guided and coached on how to identify, assess, justify and implement new business opportunities. The basic concept features these four steps, giving advice through the business process: Why should I invest in this opportunity? How can I fit this into my existing business? Who has experienced it and can tell me about it? What steps should I take to be successful with this new opportunity? Starting with “why”, Digital1234 uses simple opportunity-based papers written by credible industry partners, who explore each business opportunity. The second step focuses upon the “how”, by using simple assessment questions set by a panel of international and independent business experts. The third step, the “who”, describes the story behind the business success while the fourth step provides business resources for download to help customers prosper in their business, such as business focused implementation guides written by industry consultants.

Workflow – Did you know that for every Euro spent on print, another six Euros is spent on the process surrounding the actual printing? – This is often called “workflow” and is the key to achieving maximum efficiency and reducing manual touch points! – The more you automate this process, the more improvements in efficiency you can achieve. – Improving your workflow is the best place to focus your attention to get better business results. – Workflow can shorten the distance between you and your customers. – A good example of automation is a combined hybrid workflow. – It provides the ultimate production flexibility and maximises the utilisation of both your digital and offset equipment. – This allows you to calculate the financial cross over point between digital and offset; you can choose at the last minute which technology is most cost efficient. – The essence of a good production workflow can be summarised in one sentence: The less time you spend on the technology of print production, the more time you can spend on your important tasks.
