The February/March issue of Africa Print Journal, the dedicated journal for commercial and digital printing, is online.
This issue features Konica Minolta's bizhub Press C1100. Konica Minolta’s bizhub devices recently swept the board at the Buyers Laboratory LLC’s (BLI) 2015 PRO Awards by scooping all three prizes. Particularly noteworthy is the unit’s colour consistency, which is among the best BLI has seen and earned the rarely awarded 5-star rating for this important category. Text and fine lines were equally significant, also earning 5-star ratings, and the device produced smooth halftone curves across all four colours on both coated and uncoated paper. In addition, the unit achieved simplex and duplex throughput speeds at rated speed across the entire supported media range.
