STAINES, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - Sept. 15, 2008) -

Editors Note: Photos are available with this press release.

When Konica Minolta's new A4 colour laser magicolor 5600 series is launched in early September, customers will be able to get their hands on two new revolutionary machines being released into the market. Outstanding long-lasting colour and high economical usage combine with a sleek looking machine to provide consumers with the perfect printing companion.

The magicolor 5650EN and magicolor 5670EN boast a print speed of 30 and 35 pages per minute respectively, with both new models allowing for true colour quality at impressive speeds. Offering easy connectivity and countless applications, they are the perfect solution for performing the colour printing tasks of corporate workgroups and small - medium business teams.

"Continuing on from the success of the magicolor 5500 series, Konica Minolta launch the 5600 series. In the current economic climate, corporate & small - medium sized businesses are looking for economic solutions, without sacrificing vital quality." says Harminder Ramanay, Head of Marketing - Konica Minolta IT Channel continues. "The 5600 series has been designed to provide the consumer with high quality prints and offers a flexible in-house printing option. This is a sleek device, perfect for the corporate & creative environments."

Konica Minolta's award-winning Simitri HD toner (used throughout magicolor's various award winning printers) ensures true - high quality and long-lasting colour on each and every print produced on magicolor 5650EN and magicolor 5670EN. Not only does the Simitri HD toner give the user sleek high definition printing results, the toner also withstands UV light, offering fade resistance. Peeling around the edges - a common irritation among professionals- has been eliminated. Furthermore, Simitri HD toner allows users to reduce energy consumption by as much as 15%, requiring lower fusing temperatures than average toners.

The magicolor 5650 & 5670 users can choose between three print resolution settings to match their requirements and budget: Economy Mode is suitable for mixed printouts, cutting down toner consumption for images and graphics by up to 50% while producing sharp printed text. Without affecting the print speed, the High-Quality Mode offers PhotoART-9600TM (600x600x4-bit contone) resolution delivering high definition and subtle gradients. For ultra-fine image quality, the Glossy Mode pitches the control of the toner to an adherence up to 250%.

The magicolor 5600 series range of features and applications include two additional lower paper feeders, duplexer, hard disc and staple finisher, the last of which is rarely found in this class and underlines the media flexibility that the series offers. By upgrading the system with one or two optional lower paper feeders, a maximum paper capacity of 1,600 sheets can be achieved. The standard multi-manual feed tray is designed to accommodate a variety of paper sizes ranging from A5 to banner format (216 x 1,200 mm).

Due to the application of PCL6 and PostScript3, Konica Minolta's magicolor 5650EN and magicolor 5670EN fit into almost any office environment. Adding an optional hard disc, both printers even support the XPS file format from Windows Vista. To provide unlimited and easy printer access from USB memory sticks or digital cameras there is PictBridge via which PDF, JPEG, TIFF and XPS file formats can be easily printed. Users can choose between an optional hard disc or Compact Flash Card to support PictBridge. For support of Microsoft's XPS files the optional hard disc is required.
