function. By supporting the Lightweight Directory Access
Protocol, the C450 lets you search for addresses by
department or by keywords such as names. By combining
several search criteria, you can do an advanced search for
increased efficiency. You can search for up to 120 addresses
at once and quickly register them in the C450.
The PageScope Data Administrator is a utility software
especially designed to reduce the administrator's
workload by simplifying data management and renewal
of registered data of the MFP. Information delivery
between the PC and MFP becomes easier and the work
hours needed to maintain data is greatly reduced. The
software is used during maintenance and in the initial
setup of a device after installation.
In today’s business world, a fax is still a vital tool. And the C450’s versatile fax
functions, which include its ability to store incoming fax data on a hard disk
drive, high-speed transmission, and superior image quality will no doubt keep
you highly competitive.

High Quality &
High Speed
What’s the C450’s secret for superior image quality? Advanced
technologies such as improved scanning accuracy, advanced image
processing, and polymerised toner for vibrant colour reproduction.
The C450 not only delivers impressive business documents, but it also
achieves the superior image quality required in such areas as graphic
High-Speed 4-Colour Tandem Engine
Simitri Toner
Our tandem engine enables printing at 35 pages/min in full
colour or 45 pages/min in black-and-white. While in
previous models the transfer process took four steps (once
for each of the C, M, Y, and K colours), the new engine does
it in a single step .
The C450 uses eco-friendly
polymerised toner with tiny, highly uniform 6.5µm particles
that provide superior image quality. This toner also has
reduced glare, giving your business documents a natural,
sophisticated look. While the toner is oil-free, it is
encapsulated in wax to ensure outstanding fixation.
Polymerised toner
Conventional toner
Particles are uniform
in size and shape.
Selectable Image Quality
Beautiful Images, Superb Reproducibility
The C450 delivers beautiful, faithful reproductions of the
kinds of documents you create most often, such as
PowerPoint presentations. It also offers greatly improved
scanning accuracy, thanks to the use of character zone
micro-separation. This process delineates the outer edges
and inner portions of each text character in a scanned
document, and it distinguishes among black characters,
colour characters and halftone dot areas. It also improves
the recognition of text on halftone dot backgrounds, such
as in maps and graphs. The result is superior reproduction
with minimal blurring and smearing, even when making
multiple-generation copies.

right from the panel.
Buttons have large,easyto-see indications and a
simple, logical layout.
Front Access Structure
Since the toner cartridge and paper can be replaced quickly and easily
from the front, there’s no need to move the unit. This keeps downtime to
a minimum.
Easy Paper Replenishment
The new free-grip handles let you grip from either above or below,
making it a snap to open and close the paper feed cassettes, even the
bottom cassette. You can easily change the paper size by adjusting the
paper guide located within the cassettes.
Easier Paper-Jam Removal
The C450 introduces a simpler paper-path design and a wide-opening
right side cover. These features let you remove paper jams quickly and
easily by simply opening only a single cover.
