Unify Brings Color to Konica Systems

Cluster print server targeted for reprographics market By Dave Nagel
Konica today announced the availability of Unify Konica 2.0 from Advanced Hi-Tech (AHT). Unify is a new digital cluster printing server for high-volume B&W and color output.

The Unify Konica 2.0 server connects multiple devices via a network or direct cable connection and works with konica's 7920 and 7915 Color Imaging Systems. The B&W pages are sent to the Konica 7075 or FORCE 75, and the color pages to the Konica 7920/7915. A blank or printed sheet is inserted into the B&W document that represents where the color pages should be inserted.

Clusters combine a total of up to 10 7075, FORCE 75 and 7920/7915 machines in one cluster. Unify Konica 2.0 is targeted for central reprographic departments, print for pay, networked offices and production print environments. Other features include:

  • Multiple copy splitting
  • Document splitting
  • Load balancing
  • Color and B&W splitting
  • Automatic job recovery
  • Electronic collation
  • Priority printing
  • Scheduling
  • Archiving
  • Scanning.

Unify Konica 2.0 also offers an optional Document Management Suite, which includes DocComposer, a document manipulation tool that allows users to make changes to a document without changing the original file; PageSetter, an imposition tool that provides users with preset and customizable templates that can transform a document into a booklet without altering the original files; and Vite technology, a variable data printing tool that enables users to incorporate variable text and images into documents for personalized output.

Unify Konica 2.0 pre-configured with the Unify Konica software and the ability to cluster two Konica 7075 or FORCE 75 Enterprise Document Systems sells for $11,400. The addition of a 7920/7915 to Unify Konica adds $5,000 to the price. Additional B&W printer licenses can be added for $1,000. The Document Management Suite sells for $4,000.
