Flexible and advanced security features to protect valuable information
Print from advanced wireless, mobile and cloud technology
The User Interface has been completely revamped with an operation panel screen with smart-device-style operability. Operation has been simplified by narrowing down functions and screen transitions to frequently-used functions.
Easy-to-use, new operation panel design
The operation panel features a new simple GUI (Graphical User Interface) design. Features including no hard keys and panel vibration feedback reflect familiar smart devices and enable easy use of a variety of IT services. Simplicity of operation has been achieved by concentrating on frequently-used functions to minimise functions and screen transitions.
User friendly, large 10.1-inch touch panel
The 10.1-inch panel has been newly developed from the customer’s perspective. It delivers better legibility and ease of operation for enhanced work efficiency. The multitouch feature enables smooth, intuitive tablet-like operation.
Switchable GUI operation panel with a choice of two panel styles
The user can switch between two panel styles as required: the new GUI Basic Style characterised by simple operation, and the conventional Classic Style utilising advanced settings and functions..
Panel vibration assists operation
Touching the panel triggers vibration feedback, assisting panel operation by users who are visually impaired.
Adjustable tilt operation panel
The operation panel can be freely tilted to a maximum 90° to suit individual users. Movement is stiffer when tilting backwards, to accommodate touch panel use, while it can be smoothly adjusted with light pressure when tilting forward.
bizhub C4050i series has a compact footprint of 420 mm width and 528 mm depth. Compared to its predecessor, width has been reduced by about 25% and depth by about 11%. Its size lends itself to use in settings such as corporate back offices, deskside in small home offices, or as a departmental machine in large offices.
User authentication, the cloud, and a variety of document data security functions lighten the burden on IT managers facing security issues with largescale digital data and paper documents.
bizhub C4050i series adopts a new 256GB encrypted SSD for heightened security functions. With very few device compatibility problems, and with full-time encryption, this constantly maintains a high level of security with no fuss.
By setting a password for documents on the printer driver screen, the document is stored on the unit’s SSD until the same password is input into the unit’s operation panel. The document is protected without being output until the password set for that document is matched. This is useful when you wish to output a vital document or give permission for limited users to receive copies.
Various types of user authentication
Optimal authentication systems can be customised to suit office scale and preexisting systems. bizhub C4050i series also supports single sign-on (SSO) which enhances operability without sacrificing security.
Main unit authentication
Authentication can be performed through the bizhub alone. It is also possible to set detailed usage restrictions for functions, including copy, print, scan and fax.
Non-contact IC card authentication
Non-contact IC cards*1 such as FeliCa can be used to authenticate users *2. This also supports SSFC ( Shared Security Formats Cooperation ) specifications which enable integration of staff authentication with authentication systems. Apart from non-contact IC cards, authentication can also be carried out on NFC-compatible Android devices * 3
*1 Non-contact IC cards are compatible with FeliCa (IDm), SSFC, FCF, FCF (Campus) and MIFARE (UID).
*2 Requires the IC card authentication device AU-201S option.
*3 Requires an Android device later than Android 4.4, compatible with HCE (Post Card Emulation), and Konica Minolta Mobile Print.
Highly accurate authentication is possible using finger veins. It’s easy, and also enables the building of high-level security systems.
*Requires the Biometric Authentication Devices AU-102, EK-P08 or EK-P09 and WT-P03 options.
bizhub C4050i series is equipped with robust antivirus software based on an embedded BitDefender scan engine to ensure safe connection to the MFP by the cloud, and to devices including PCs, tablets, and USB flash drives. Scanning individual files means much finer virus detection than with the whitelist method alone. Latent viruses in the office are discovered through checking and notification when files are input. Checking when files are output from the MFP also prevents dissemination of infected files. Further periodic checking of files in the MFP discovers risky files and detects latent risks in the MFP. Real time virus scan jobs are available for print, scan and fax functions, while manual or scheduled virus scans are possible for Box and SSD such as SMB folders.
*Requires i-Option LK-116.
The animated guide demonstrates procedures such as handling paper jams and replenishing consumables. Following the instructions displayed on the operation panel ensures smooth operation.
High-performance quad-core CPU
A high performance Cortex A72 CPU Quad Core 1.6 GHz CPU improves overall system performance. The extra CPU cores mean efficient parallel processing of applications, and seamless operation of cloud applications even during basic MFP’s processing functions such as copying and printing.
Shorter warm-up time
The warm-up time, from powering up to printing is kept within 13 seconds. First Copy Out Time, from when the copy button is pressed until the first copy prints, is 4.8 seconds or less. Panel reset time has also shortened greatly to about 1.5 seconds
Web browser function
bizhub C4050i series supports a web browser function. Websites can be displayed on the operation panel and printed out. Pages in PDF files on the website can be specified and only the required sections printed. This is very handy, allowing easy printing such as of destination maps from the site.
Equipped with advanced functions for colour MFPs.
Both Copy and Print functions exhibit outstanding performance.
High-volume paper input capacity
A 500-sheet large capacity paper feed unit and a 100-sheet multi-manual feed unit come as standard. Adding two optional 500-sheet paper feed units enables a maximum of 1,600 sheets*.
Further installing the optional off-line stapler removes the effort of manual stapling.
*80 gsm paper.
Fast print speed up to 40 ppm | 33ppm
Colour and monochrome printing up to 40 ppm | 33ppm (A4 portrait) enhance business efficiency and productivity. Cabinets and castors can be further customised to suit the office environment and usage settings. Configurations can be freely customised, from A4 submachines in large offices to small home office and shop machines.
Enhanced 1,200 dpi resolution
bizhub C4050i series achieves a 1,200-dpi print resolution with superb ability to reproduce small font sizes and fine lines. Such faithful reproduction capability improves document legibility and produces beautiful, high-quality print-outs.
*Slows down printing speed.
Adoption of colour matching, corresponding to “memory colour”
Printer driver colour settings have been revised to perform colour matching corresponding to default “memory colour settings”. “Memory colour settings” refer to colours that most people recall as being brighter and more saturated than reality. Konica Minolta’s colour matching improves satisfaction with print quality by strongly appealing to people’s colour memories.
Standard USB port
A USB port is standard equipment, located on the side of the main unit’s operation panel. After inserting a USB flash drive, printing procedures pop up in the touch screen, and the flash drive data can be directly printed or saved to a box in the unit with a few easy steps.
* May not operate correctly depending on the type of USB flash drive
* Supported file formats: PDF, compact PDF, JPEG, TIFF, XPS, compact XPS, and OOXML (.docx/.xlsx/.pptx).
* Printing results may differ from the image on the PC screen.
The Scan functions deliver high performance and high functionality from speed, quality and distribution to storage.
Outstanding scan performance
Automatic duplex, simultaneous scanning with an Automatic Document Feeder (ADF), achieves high-speed colour scanning of 90 ppm (45 double-sided A4 sheets per minute). Up to 80 sheets* can be set at any one time, significantly reducing scanning time and effort. The precision of automatic skew correction, which adjusts the angle of the scanned original, has been greatly improved to deliver highly accurate scanning with less skew.
Double feed detection sensor
Applying ultrasonic waves to the original distinguishes a layer of air between each page and detects double feeds. When a double feed is detected, a preview of the original that has already been scanned will be displayed so that the job can be restarted without repeating the whole scanning operation from the beginning.
*Requires Upgrade Kit UK-P19 option
Paper Size Measurement function
This function automatically measures irregular-sized paper placed on the platen glass. The size of the measured paper can also be registered in the bizhub’s memory. It can be utilised in offices that handle irregular paper sizes like slips and vouchers.
Scan to URL function
Equipped with a Scan to URL function which stores Scan data within the bizhub, then emails the storage destination URL to the user. This enables easy transmission of large volume data that cannot be attached to emails.
Digitisation of paper documents
Documents can be scanned and converted to PDF or OOXML format files. File format can be selected according to the business and intended use, which broadens the scope of secondary use.
Offers a new workstyle through advanced connectivity with mobile devices.
Mobile communications function
Connectivity with NFC-equipped Android devices
The operation panel has a mobile touch area compatible with NFC-equipped devices. Installing Konica Minolta Mobile Print on Android devices allows that device to be registered to bizhub. Just holding the Android device over the mobile touch area enables the selected file to be printed. Originals set in bizhub can also be scanned and saved to Android devices or cloud storage. Where user authentication is enabled, just holding the Android device nearby allows log in.
*Requires the Android device to be equipped with OS4.4 or later.
*Requires a wireless LAN environment.
Bluetooth LE connectivity with iOS devices
Using Bluetooth LE (low energy), a bizhub close to the user can be searched and registered with Konica Minolta Mobile Print. As it is also supported with the iOS action button, printing and scan data sharing from various applications can be smoothly executed. Further, where user authentication is enabled, Bluetooth LE can be used to log in.
*Requires the device connection I/F kit EK-P09 option.
*Requires wireless LAN environment.
Wireless LAN(AP Mode)
bizhub C4050i series supports Simple AP Mode*, which easily creates a local wireless LAN environment with only the bizhub allowing a wireless LAN to be built separately from the company LAN. Because it bypasses the company LAN, even mobile devices brought in from outside can be securely connected.
*Requires Upgrade Kit UK-221 option.
A range of environmental considerations made, from outer case materials to power consumption.
Adoption of recycled materials
Konica Minolta has further refined our original chemical processing technology, which now uses recycled PC/PET for exterior and interior materials. As a result, use of recycled materials has increased to about 60%, as a surface area ratio. Proactive adoption of recycled materials contributes to effective use of resources and promotes corporate environmental protection.
*PCR (post-consumer recycling) ratio: is the proportion of materials collected in the municipality used in recycled materials.
0.5W sleep mode power consumption
Power saving logic has been improved, including turning off the CPU during sleep mode, to reduce sleep mode power consumption to 0.5W. In addition to helping reduce environmental impact, this is also effective in reducing TCO (Total Cost of Ownership).
Wide-ranging environmental compatibility. Compliant with various environmental standards
To address environmental issues such as global warming, our products are compatible with global environmental standards, including the International Energy Star Program which aims to develop and introduce highly energy-efficient office equipment.
