but mighty
It might be small but shouldn’t be underestimated: the bizhub C20 excels with advanced technology and amazing
flexibility. Thanks to its attractive user-friendly design and small footprint it integrates smoothly into any setup,
adding quality to document output and enhancing overall productivity – in short, providing teams and offices with
the skills to win!
n With enhanced resolution of up to 600 x 600 dpi x
4 bit and an attractive matt finish, the print
quality on the bizhub C20 is superb. Thanks to the
advanced capabilities of Simitri® HD – the high
definition polymerised toner that Konica Minolta
also applies to its larger multifunctionals –
it delivers above-average quality and high durability.
A unique edge enhancement process sharpens
the contours of text and graphics, ensuring top
performance especially for text, fine lines and
drawings – the result is a crisp and clear printed
image always, whether in colour or b/w.
n While very economic to use, the bizhub C20 also
enables companies to show consideration for the
environment. Low-temperature fixing saves up to
15 % energy and has been achieved with Simitri® HD
polimerised toner which needs a much lower fusing
temperature. The important international energy star
label testifies to this attractively low energy
consumption. Also the production of Konica Minolta’s
proprietary polymerised toner is environmentally
sound: during the production process of Simitri® HD
toner 40 percent less CO2, NO2 and SO2 are emitted
than with conventional pulverised toners.
n Administration is made easy with the bizhub C20 :
PageScope Web Connection provides simple and
straightforward web-based device management –
users can easily call up information on the status
and settings of the bizhub C20 right on their PC
monitor. At the same time PageScope Netcare
enhances the administrator support with fast access
and simple monitoring on the network.

Versatile communication &
The bizhub C20 is the perfect local communication partner for little teams and small offices. Equipped with
Konica Minolta’s latest Emperon controller technology, this compact multifunctional is competent when it comes
to creating and managing everyday office documents.
Speedy copying
A productive tandem A4 copier, the bizhub C20 supplies fast 24 pages per minute – in colour as well as
in b/w. Its scan-once-print-many functionality makes
the production of multiple copies quick, simple and
straightforward. Added convenience is available with
automatic duplex copying and the automatic duplex
document feeder, both standard. Other practical
functions include zoom and the 2-in-1 or 4-in-1
function, with which up to 4 pages can be combined
on one sheet to save paper.
With its versatile media handling capabilities the
bizhub C20 has a real talent for producing
sophisticated, professional-looking documents.
The standard 250-sheet paper feeder is enhanced
with a flexible 100-sheet multi manual feed tray
via which up to 210 gsm paper can be fed. In
addition, the overall paper capacity can be increased
to a generous 850 sheets with an optional lower
paper feeder.
Productive printing
Flexible faxing
As a printer, the bizhub C20 features a 500 MHz
processor plus standard 256 MB RAM, upgradeable
to 768 MB. Konica Minolta’s highly efficient
Emperon™ system ensures compatibility with
PostScript® 3™ and PCL® 6 and enables seamless
integration into virtually any network. Native support
of XPS, Microsoft Vista™’s XML paper specification,
is provided via the optional HDD. With Gigabit
Ethernet and high-speed USB 2.0 support the
bizhub C20 is well equipped and future-ready. Direct
USB print for PDF, TIFF, JPEG and XPS formats is
available as an option.
The bizhub C20 is a capable ECM/Super G3
fax that enables its users to send and receive
documents at high speed. Its address book
functionality includes up to 220 speed dials that
can be combined into to 20 groups with max. 50
destinations each. User convenience is impressively
generous and includes many practical functions
such as time send and auto redial.
Special print features include n-up printing,
automatic page output in booklet order, poster mode
and image overlay – highly practical for forms
printing or for example to combine correspondence
automatically with the company letterhead. If the
optional HDD is equipped secure printing is
also available, enabling users to delay printing by
first setting a password on their computer, which
they then need to enter directly at the bizhub
C20’s display to release their job. Full confidentiality
is thus guaranteed.
Advanced scanning
With an identical scanning speed of up to 24 originals per minute, the bizhub C20 is a highly productive scanner for colour and b/w. Its automatic duplex
document feeder enables automatic scanning of the
front and the reverse of a page, making scanning
even more productive. Same as on Konica Minolta’s
A3 MFPs, a wealth of enhanced network scan
functions is available, including Scan-to-email, -FTP
and -SMB. This means direct network scanning –
neither additional software nor a locally connected
PC are required. Scan to USB memory enables
direct storing of scans in PDF, JPEG or TIFF format
on a USB stick – a “detour” via the computer is not
As an effective pull scan application, the Link Magic
software facilitates scanning from the PC without
opening any specific application. The functions
TWAIN and WIA Scan are also available; and the
standard PaperPort 11SE scan software provides a
convenient OCR functionality, making the managing
and archiving of documents faster and easier
A helpful and versatile PC fax driver allows direct
faxing of documents from the PC – no printout
of the document is required. With the Fax-forwardto-email feature any incoming fax can directly go
to a pre-programmed email address. It’s up to the
recipient to decide whether he needs to print the
document at all.
The bizhub C20 offers a wealth of features,
functionalities and conveniences that streamline
every-day office communication, speeding up
general office tasks and enhancing any team’s
or single user’s productivity. It’s the perfect
choice as the local communication centre in busy
companies and complex organisations.
