The ‘Box’ feature is one that comes standard across many of the latest Bizhub printers and works as a storage unit for scanned documents on the built-in SSD. Documents stored in the Box can be accessed by a web browser, in addition, to directly via the MPF’s interface. The Bizhub C4050i allows users to create up to 1000 boxes which can hold up to around 3000 documents depending on their size. Scanned documents can be emailed, saved to a USB thumb drive, uploaded via FTP or kept in the Box. Output formats supported include PDF, TIFF, and JPEG amongst a few others.
The faxing feature uses a 33.6 kbps modem alongside JBIG compression. Documents can be faxed in colour. IP and PC fax are standard features with the Bizhub C4050i.
