Following of from the success magicolor 7450 Konica Minolta is pleased to announce the launch of the new graphics printer magicolor 7450II GA. This is the latest A3+ colour laser printer developed for the graphics and creative industry.

The new colour laser printer is based on the award-winning magicolor 7450, which has won several accolades for its print engine including a BLI "Pick of the Year" award in 2006 and the Macworld award in 2006 and 2007. The new magicolor 7450II GA is not only an enhanced version of this well-proven device but also ties in essential features to make it ready for the requirements of the creative sector.

Handling large amounts of data for printing is daily business in advertising agencies or with graphic artists. Konica Minolta's unique Emperon print controller with a fast 733MHz is just one of the features ensuring easy handling of bigger print jobs. For powerful performance, the magicolor 7450II GA offers higher memory 768 MB capacity and is equipped with a 40 GB standard hard disk and a 1 GB network connection. This ensures customers can rely on a fast throughput from both PCs and Macs via its standard PCL and PostScript 3 capabilities.

The truth behind the brilliant colours and photorealistic results of the magicolor 7450II GA is its quality-enhancing technologies. There are four dual-beam lasers to make sure users get highest precision and stability in image writing. An increased colour differentiation, true colour mixing and deep black are made possible by the PhotoART-9600 with 4-bit contone resolution. The Emperon print controller puts colour matching capabilities into the mix and the extremely small and uniform particles of the Simitri polymerised toner further add to vibrant colours and true black.

As creative ideas seldom fit on A4 sized standard paper, the magicolor 7450II GA offers versatile media processing capabilities: formats from A5 to A3+ (311 x 457 mm) and paper weights from 64 to 256 g/m2 can be processed; even banner printing of up to 297 mm x 1200 mm is available, too. So there are no limits to concept books, presentations, proofs, photo prints or even short runs for ads.

The magicolor 7450II GA incorporates a professional colour management system. It gives users control over a wide range of simulations, for instance ICC proofing workflows for press simulations in offset production.

Harminder Ramanay, Konica Minolta's Head of Marketing - IT Channel comments, "Konica Minolta A3+ printers are the number one choice for the graphics and creative industry. Our A3+ printers are becoming an essential product in the creative design business; hence, we have developed a graphics printer specifically for the graphics market."
