Konica Minolta Intros $699 Color Laser All-in-One Color Laser

2480 MF Delivers Five Essential Business Functions (January 04, 2006)

 Today KONICA MINOLTA PRINTING SOLUTIONS U.S.A., INC. introduced the magicolor 2480 MF color laser all-in-one that combines five essential business functions--Print, Copy, Scan, Camera Direct Photo Print, and PC Fax--into one convenient machine. With a price tag of just $699 (est. street), the magicolor 2480 MF gives cost-conscious, productivity-driven SMBs an affordable office solution.

Save Time, Space, and Money

Customers no longer need to operate and maintain several machines in different locations. They can rely on a single device that fits almost any workspace. The magicolor 2480 MF is competitively priced and cost-effective to operate. Just pennies a print, black or full-color laser-quality documents and photographs won't break the budget. Time-consuming and costly outsourcing is now a thing of the past because important color documents are always at the fingertips with in-house production.

Outstanding Color Prints, Copies, Scans, and Digital Fax Documents

Based on an award-winning KONICA MINOLTA color laser print engine design, the magicolor 2480 MF makes it easy to produce high-quality color prints, copies, scans, and digital fax documents that are sure to impress. 2400 dpi print and copy resolution produces crisp text, rich blacks, vibrant colors, realistic photographs, and smooth shading. Copies can be easily reduced or enlarged by using the 50-200% zoom feature, and one-touch functions are available to customize copy quality even further. Documents and photos can be scanned in 24-bit color directly to a PC with ScanSoft PaperPort(R) SE from Nuance and then annotated or edited; saved in PDF, JPEG, or TIFF format; or converted to editable text using the Optical Character Recognition (OCR) feature. Both the flatbed glass and the standard automatic document feeder support documents up to legal size (8.5" x 14"). The magicolor 2480 MF includes FaxTalk Communicator(TM) software, which provides convenient digital PC Fax send and receive functionality. Customers can scan and customize a document on the PC before faxing or printing.

KONICA MINOLTA Simitri(R) Polymerized Toner, composed of uniformly sized toner particles, produces beautiful colors, small clear text, and smooth halftones regardless of the media type used. Rigorous quality control procedures ensure Simitri Polymerized toner cartridges deliver consistent, accurate color. The magicolor 2480 MF features enhanced Automatic Image Density Control (eAIDC), which automatically calibrates the print engine for optimal color quality.

Easy to Set up and Use

For most people the business day is hectic enough without devoting time to setting up and maintaining a new office machine. The magicolor 2480 MF features pre-installed supplies and auto-run installation software, so it takes only a few minutes to go from box to printed documents. Front access ensures easy replacement of supplies while intuitive one-touch control panel functions make it a snap to customize print and copy jobs. The standard automatic document feeder provides time-saving, unattended copying and scanning.

In addition, Camera Direct Photo Print allows digital images to be printed directly from a PictBridge-enabled digital camera without using a PC or special software. PictBridge provides control over a number of photo printing options, including resolution, media type and size (up to 8.5" x 11", including 4" x 6" borderless prints on special media), copy count, and n-up, batch, and index printing.

Exceptional Media Handling

The magicolor 2480 MF supports a wide variety of standard and custom media sizes, from 3.6" x 5.8" to 8.5" x 14, as well as plain paper, thick stock, glossy stock, transparencies, labels (mailing, CD-ROM, etc.), envelopes, and photo media. An optional automatic duplexer provides professional-quality, two-sided printed documents as well as cost-effective, two-sided copies from one-sided originals.

Dependable, High-Speed Laser Performance

The magicolor 2480 MF is quick to print, delivering its first black and white page in 12 seconds and color page in 21 seconds. Subsequent pages print at a fast 20 ppm b&w and 5 ppm color. To share this color laser performance office-wide, the magicolor 2480 MF features 'Plug and Play' Hi-Speed USB 2.0 and optional Fast Ethernet interfaces, and boasts a robust duty cycle of up to 35,000 prints per month. Compatible with Windows(R) XP, 2000, Me, and 98SE operating systems, the magicolor 2480 MF fits seamlessly into today's SMB landscape.

The magicolor 2480 MF has a one-year exchange warranty and is backed by five years of free, U.S.-based technical support for added reliability. It ships with a pre-installed set of supplies, including cyan, magenta, yellow, and black toner cartridges. The magicolor 2480 MF is available through the KONICA MINOLTA network of retail outlets, e-commerce partners, resellers, and authorized distributors.
