1 BENS G3 Next generation of print datastream modification

2 Table of content History Brief introduction Features / Benefits Target Group Detailed function description Specification Competition Pricing Highlights

3 ECO System Connectivity: The applications of this category ensure that Konica Minolta output devices are seamlessly integrated into almost any host environment given. At the same time, they offer the conversion of print-datastreams and enhanced features in specific environments such as SAP. Users save costs and gain flexibility because their devices become compatible with different IT platforms.

4 Product history BENS (Barcode Engine Network Server) Out of the box barcode printing from SAP BENS+ Native barcode and Unicode function from SAP New fan-less hardware Possibility to add new filters BENS G3 New licence management Several optional filters available New hardware platform (fan-less) No mechanical parts (SDD Hardisk Drive)

5 Outline Name:BENS G3 Category:Connectivity Describtion:Network print server to provide filter technology that allows print job manipulation on the fly Example usage: PCL barcode filter for SAP compatible barcode printing Unicode filter for SAP compatible international printing support (e.g. Asian or east European characters) Filter for input tray and output bin controlling Filter for “Carbon Copy” functionality

6 Features – BENS G3 Network print server Supported protocols: LPR, SMB, Socket, IPP, SNMP, DHCP HTML interface for administration the print server Reprint of print jobs Download of unfiltered and filtered print jobs Print preview on the print server Firmware / Filters can be updated New filters can be uploaded Synchronisation with a second BENS G3 print server available for system stability (Mirroring) Employment of several filters per printer Up to 50 printers can be run on one single appliance Backup and restore function for configurations 1 x PCL5 Barcode Filter and 1 x Unicode Filter with Unicode Font Andale is included

7 Benefits Plug-and-play enterprise printing solution for SAP R/3 and other applications Attractive and highly cost-effective solution for multiple printers Simple and straightforward network integration. Fully scalable thanks to easy download of additional filter licences No embedded solution Longterm solution can be used with future printer generation (only PCL is precondition) Specific customisation is possible

8 Target group Companies from mid to enterprise level are target group for SAP/R3 Using SAP is challenging in regards of print out SAP demands several functions to be part of the printer (e.g. Barcode) Companies using SAP might benefit from BENS G3 Customers that need modification on datastreams coming from older host systems #CompanySoftware Revenues mln US$ Software Revenue growth Total Revenues mln US$ Software Revenue share 1Microsoft49,090-1%61,15980% 2IBM21,396-3%95,75822% 3Oracle18,5826%22,73482% 4SAP11,368-2%15,37374% 5Ericsson7,5955%29,01426% 6Nintendo6,799-6%17,76238% 7HP6,183-15%116,2455% 8Symantec5,565-2%5,99293% 9Nokia Siemens Networks4,529-15%18,11425% 10Activision Blizzard4,279-7%4,279100% SAP is still one of the most sucessfull companies in the software industry (

9 Functional principle BENS G3 Filter 2Filter 1Filter n Virtual Printers Real Printers Filter 1 Filter 2 Filter 1 Filter 2 Clients Printers 1 2 50 X 1 2 Y Up to 50 virtual printers can be defined as input Different filters can be configured and chained for each vitual printer After using filters the printjob is sent to one of up to 50 network attached PCL printers

10 BENS G3 communicates via SNMP Supports the SNMP Protocol (Simple Network Message Protocol) SNMP requests from Clients will be passed to the target device (printer or print server) and vice versa Failed print jobs can be reprinted automatically ClientsBENS G3Target devices SNMP online? no paper!

11 Creating PDF-files from print data PDF Files of printed documents can be stored in a network shared folder defined by the BENS G3 Administrator Client original print data print data modificated by filters Printer BENS G3 Processing Filters PDF File

12 Example of working with Filters: BARCODES Client original printer data print data including barcodes Printer BENS G3 Processing barcodes Compatible to barcode solutions provided by HP Plug&play printing from SAP R/3 No modification on printer side needed

13 Compatible with HP “International Printing Solution” Andale font (~60.000 characters) is included Plug&play printing from SAP R/3 No modification on printer side needed Example of working with Filters: UNICODE Client original printer data print data including Chinese characters Printer BENS G3 Processing Chinese characters Unicode Font(s) プラネタリウム満天 矽感亮相 “2010 中国国际金融(银行)技术暨设备展览会 ” 矽感亮相 “2010 中国国际金融(银行)技术暨设备展览会 ” 矽感亮相 “2010 中国国际金融(银行)技术暨设备展览会 ” 矽感亮相 “2010 中国国际金融(银行)技术暨设备展览会 ”

14 Two BENS G3 can be installed in the network for mirror functionality Configurations on the master device are automatically reflected on the mirrorded device (but additional licences are only necessary for the master device) System Stability through MIRRORING Print ServerBENS G3 MASTER Network ClientsNetwork Printers BENS G3 MIRROR

15 System Stability through MIRRORING Print Server BENS G3 MASTER Network ClientsNetwork Printers BENS G3 MIRROR If the BENS G3 Master device has malfunction, the MIRROR device will take over the functionality
