Konica-MinoltaKonica Minolta magicolor 2450 color laser printer : Today Konica Minolta printing solutions USA Inc. introduced the latest model in its award-winning magicolor 2400 Series of color laser printers: the magicolor 2450. Retaining the Series' popular compact design, the magicolor 2450 is equipped with more power, greater versatility, and excellent color quality for general office and design applications. While it may be small, this user-friendly color laser has a business-class feature set usually found only in high-end departmental or specialty graphics printers. The magicolor 2450 is one of two new printers to feature Konica Minolta’s next-generation Emperon printing architecture.
Konica Minolta magicolor 2450 color laser printer2450 Laser printer - Easy to use
This true desktop printer, which is up to 30% smaller than comparable models, fits easily into any environment. Like other magicolor 2400 models, the magicolor 2450 has simple, full-front access for reloading supplies and clearing media jams, so there's no need to waste desk space to access the back of the machine. A hallmark of Konica Minolta laser printers is their ease of use, and the magicolor 2450 color printer is no exception. It uses auto-run installation software to automatically detect the printer on the network and guide the user step-by-step through printer setup. And it ships with pre-installed, 4,500-page toners so users can get up and running in just a few minutes.

Magicolor 2450 color laser printer - Features
The Konica Minolta magicolor 2450 is also loaded with features that make daily operation a breeze. Comprehensive software print drivers simplify printing with options such as collation, fit-to-page scaling, separation pages, watermarks, tray selection, and secure printing. It has a desktop Status Monitor which utilizes a pop-up window on the user's screen for notification of print job status and supply levels. The PageScope suite of printer management utilities provides real-time supply status, as well as remote printer management and configuration for both individual users and IT professionals.

Konica Minolta 2450 printer - Packed with printing power
For greater versatility and increased processing power, the magicolor 2450 uses an easy-to-access Emperon controller, which is designed to process and deliver pages quickly and seamlessly. The controller provides compatibility with the most popular printing languages--PostScript 3 and PCL 6--and with both Windows and Macintosh operating environments. Emperon supports multiple network protocols, including TCP/IP, EtherTalk(R), and NetWare(R). And, it greatly improves printer performance and image quality while simplifying the entire printing process.

Konica Minolta 2450 laser printer - Fast printer
The magicolor 2450 printer is equipped with a 300 MHz PowerPC CPU, which gives users the power needed for processing complex files, including high-resolution graphics and images. The printer comes standard with 128 MB DDR SDRAM, which doubles file data throughput and delivers print jobs quickly. A 10/100BaseTX Ethernet interface provides high-speed network printing for busy workgroups. USB 2.0 and parallel ports are also included for stand-alone operation.

Konica Minolta magicolor 2450 printer - Great print quality
"Our small and mid-sized business customers are continually challenged to do more with less," said Stephen Fletcher, president and COO of Konica Minolta printing solutions. "Our goal with the design of the Konica Minolta 2450 color printer was to provide these customers with a robust color laser that gives them greater productivity and better print quality, in a size and price that fit the space and budget needs of the typical small and mid-sized business."

Konica Minolta magicolor 2450 printer - Brilliant, consistent color
Print quality in the magicolor 2450 has been dramatically enhanced with 9600 x 600 dpi-class resolution, made possible by Photo ART, Konica Minolta's contone printing technology. Photo ART delivers superior photographic detail and smooth color gradients, giving documents greater audience appeal. For consistent, accurate color from first page to last, the magicolor 2450 uses Enhanced Automatic Image Density Control (eAIDC). This technology automatically calibrates the printer for optimum print quality, even during intensive, long-term use. Advanced users will appreciate the automatic ICC-based color matching and dynamic contone screening built into the magicolor 2450. These advanced color features provide automatic color correction and optimization of print quality for professional or novice users.

Konica Minolta laser printer - Simitri Polymerized Toner
The magicolor 2450 uses Konica Minolta's Simitri Polymerized Toner, which encapsulates uniform-sized toner particles in a wax base. This toner produces much clearer, sharper output, finer text, and better halftones. It also reduces toner consumption up to 30% and keeps the printer cleaner. Because Simitri Polymerized Toner requires less energy to produce, it also helps lower CO2 emissions and reduces the discharge of other air pollutants.

Konica Minolta 2450 laser printer - Affordable
"We believe our small and mid-sized business customers will find that the magicolor 2450 gives them a definite competitive advantage," stated Fletcher. "It provides the type of high-resolution, superior-quality output typically found on more expensive, high-end printer models. The magicolor 2450 color laser printer makes it more affordable for these customers to produce the kind of vibrant, persuasive documents that certainly match, if not far exceed, the quality of anything produced by their big-budget competitors."

Konica Minolta printer - Pricing and Availability
The magicolor 2450 has a one-year exchange warranty and ships with a pre-installed set of supplies, including cyan, magenta, yellow, and black all-in-one imaging cartridges. The printer is available through Konica Minolta's network of distributors, authorized dealers, and e-commerce partners. The suggested retail price of the Konica Minolta 2450 printer is set on $599.00
