WORK ANYWHERE ANYTIME,
AS PRINTING GOES MOBILE
For several years now, mobile devices have been replacing PCs – initially at home, but increasingly also in work
environments.
The extensive possibilities of mobile devices have been
fuelling the transition to mobile work styles. So has today’s
mobile workforce, expecting BYOD as a matter of course. Yet,
the essential functionality of printing was long out of reach
from mobile devices.
Now, Konica Minolta makes printing from your mobile device
even easier and more intuitive than from a PC. You don’t
even need to download external Apps or install a specific
printer driver – our mobile features integrate seamlessly
with innovative mobile technologies letting you print from
your tablet or smartphone with just one click … that’s true
innovation with a smart touch!

WIRELESS LAN
ACCESS POINT MODE/WIFI DIRECT
Allowing access to the company network from mobile terminals might raise security concerns, for example from the
IT department. A viable alternative is the Wireless LAN Access Point Mode. If this is used, the Konica Minolta printing
system acts as an access point enabling the mobile device to connect to the MFP’s own network, which is completely
separated from the company network.
WiFi Direct on the other hand enables pairing of the MFP
and the mobile device, establishing a quick and easy
machine-to-machine connection. With WiFi Direct, no
Internet connection is required: Directly connect your
mobile device and your chosen printer with a single click to
conveniently produce all your print jobs.
Benefits
– Easy and intuitive use: Connect to the MFP in exactly
the same way you connect to a WiFi network
–Flexibility: No need to change the network configuration
to ensure full security; with either of these methods, your
mobile device connects directly to the chosen printing
system.
–Productivity: Your documents are accessible and
printable at any time; and you can easily share them
from your mobile device.

PAGESCOPE MOBILE FOR MOBILE
PAIRING & AUTHENTICATION
Using the Android or iOS operating system, the free
PageScope Mobile App connects mobile devices with
Konica Minolta bizhub output systems. Printing from
and scanning to a handheld device are the two main
functionalities of this application, which ensures that
business users have their important documents ready
to hand at any time.
Pairing your mobile device with an MFP…
As a mobile user, you are probably familiar with the
sometimes long and tedious process to search for an
available printer from your mobile device. Relying on new
technologies, Konica Minolta has developed several easy,
fast and intuitive ways to do so.
…via NFC (Android devices*) or Bluetooth LE (Apple
devices**)
Enabled by Near Field Communication technology, Android
and iOS users can register the MFP into PageScope Mobile
with a single ‘touch’. This gives them full scanning and
printing functionalities from their mobile device.
…via QR Code (Android and Apple devices)
For mobile devices not equipped with an NFC chip or
Bluetooth, it is possible to scan a QR Code directly from
the MFP display and make the connection in this way.
Mobile authentication…
…via NFC (Android devices***) or Bluetooth LE (Apple
devices**)
The Android and iOS mobile devices can also replace the
authentication card. If the “Tap to authenticate on MFP” feature
is enabled, the user simply ‘taps’ the MFP with his mobile
phone or tablet to authenticate and release his print job.
Download the free PageScope Mobile App
directly from the AppStore or Google Play Store.
Benefits
– Easy and intuitive use: Connect your mobile device to
a printer of your choice with just a single touch.
–Flexibility: Gain access to every authorised MFP via
your mobile device and print or scan all the documents
you need.
–Productivity: Let your mobile workers easily access,
print and scan their documents from any office that has
a Konica Minolta MFP equipped with NFC/Bluetooth LE.
NFC (Near Field Communi­
cation) technology uses
radio communication to
exchange data between
smartphones or tablets and
bizhub MFPs by touching
both devices or bringing them into close
contact.
* PageScope Mobile version 4.0 or later must be installed on the Android device
** PageScope Mobile for iPhone/iPad (Version 5.0 or later) must be installed
