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) BENS+ BENS G3
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

9 1 1 2 2 X Y Functional principle
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 Virtual Printers Real Printers 1 1 Filter 1 2 2 Filter 2 X Y Filter 1 Filter 2 Filter 1 Filter 2 Filter n Clients 50 50 Printers BENS G3

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 online? online? SNMP SNMP SNMP SNMP no paper! no paper! Clients BENS G3 Target devices

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 PDF File Network share original print data print data modificated by filters Processing Filters Client BENS G3 Printer

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

13 Example of working with Filters: UNICODE
Compatible with HP “International Printing Solution” Andale font (~ characters) is included Plug&play printing from SAP R/3 No modification on printer side needed 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” Unicode Font(s) original printer data print data including Chinese characters Processing Chinese characters Client BENS G3 Printer

14 System Stability through MIRRORING
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) BENS G3 MASTER Print Server BENS G3 MIRROR Network Clients Network Printers

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

16 System Stability through MIRRORING
After reparation the new Master device will keep the status and the repaired device will act as new Mirror device BENS G3 MIRROR Print Server BENS G3 MASTER Network Clients Network Printers

17 Configuration Web based configuration Easy access to printer set up
Fast and easy activation of new filter licences
