IC-307 – Creative power & performance Based on proven Creo Color Server technology, Konica Minolta and Creo jointly created the IC-307 external Creo controller for the bizhub PRESS and PRO colour series. This powerful colour RIP enhances the high-performance capabilities of Konica Minolta’s digital colour presses with versatile VDP functionality, complements workflow integration, facilitates colour management and boosts overall productivity. The combination of one of Konica Minolta’s high-speed digital colour presses with the IC-307 provides professional production environments with the perfect allround colour processing solution.



Equipped with the IC-307 print controller the bizhub PRO C6000/C7000, bizhub PRO C70hc, bizhub PRESS C6000/C7000/C7000P, bizhub PRESS C70hc and bizhub PRESS C8000 provide outstanding print quality, impressive media flexibility, comprehensive in-line finishing capabilities – meeting the challenges of professional high-speed digital colour printing with optimised workflow solutions and simply brilliant results. Supported by the IC-307 Konica Minolta’s digital colour presses offer these key benefits and much more: n Enhanced productivity and optimised output n Advanced workflow control with state-of-the-art software n Market-leading colour and image quality n Spot colour editor for full colour control and easy customisation n Powerful Variable Data Printing (VDP) capabilities

Built-in VDP connectivity The IC-307 supports popular VDP applications and all leading industry formats. This facilitates and accelerates the flexible creation of fully individualised documents in superior colour quality. Element-based ripping in the IC-307 means that each image, text or graphic element is individually ripped just once for repeated use as required. This speeds up the creation process and increases throughput.

Supported devices

Seamless offset connectivity Supporting the CT/LW format as well as TiFF/TiFF-IT, the IC-307 print controller fully integrates with workflow systems like Kodak Brisque and provides seamless connectivity to Kodak Prinergy. Thanks to its complete integration with these high performance workflow systems the IC-307 bridges the gap between digital and offset printing.
