Big on functions, small in size. The compact, all-in-one bizhub 163. Equip your office with an easy-to-use, A3 digital MFP that's loaded with all the functions you need, like copying, printing, scanning, and faxing. Empower yourself with higher productivity and superior performance. The bizhub 163 increases work efficiency while lowering the total cost of ownership, especially in communication costs, and fits perfectly into SOHO, mid-size offices, or wherever space is a consideration.
The bizhub 163 serves as a standard Local TWAIN Scanner when connected directly to a PC. With it, you can scan originals up to A3 size, and convert paper documents to digital data just as simply as you would make copies. You can also share the information over the network as an optional function. And with the bizhub 163, you can conveniently scan and attach documents to your e-mail and send them on.
Documents up to A3 size can be output from a PC with the standard GDI controller. The bizhub 163 prints 16 pages/min*² at 300 dpi or 12 pages/min*² at 600 dpi. You can print a 2, 4, 6, 9, or 16-page layout onto a single sheet, and add watermarks such as "CONFIDENTIAL". In addition, by adding the optional Image Controller IC-206 you get superior image resolution. The bizhub 163 comes equipped with High Speed USB 2.0 as standard, so you can use this product as a local printer without a network environment.
The bizhub 163 optional fax function uses the Super G3 international standard and the JBIG standard high-efficiency data compression scheme. Faxes of up to A3 size can be sent over ordinary telephone lines at high speed, keeping your communication costs down. You can register up to 240 frequently used fax numbers and e-mail addresses. Plus, you can also register up to 32 destination items in the One-Touch Dial. The Internet Fax function can greatly reduce telephone charges, especially when communicating with people in distant locations.
Because the scanning, printing, and communication functions are completely independent, documents can be faxed* even while other documents are being printed. This eliminates waiting time so you can be more productive. Numerous automatic functions are built-in to deliver outstanding results. These include auto-density adjustment, auto-paper selection, and auto-zoom setting. Also the five-stage cassette with Multi Bypass Tray capability* enables continuous feeding for large-volume jobs and versatile paper, minimising downtime for paper replenishment and facilitating large copy runs.
PageScope Web Connection*¹ lets you confirm the amount of paper and toner remaining, make speed dial settings, and designate the destination for sending scanned data, all from your PC.
Also, by connecting the bizhub 163 to your PC via a USB cable, the Local Setup & Diagnosis (LSD)*² function will let you register One Touch, Speed Dial and Group Dial numbers, and create initial settings for fax registrations, copy functions and e-mailall right from your PC.
With high-contrast indications, large buttons, a variable-angle LCD, and a new, simplified layout, the user-friendly control panel is designed for easy operation. The sharp, crisp display has easy-to-understand explanations, and frequently used buttons are larger. The bizhub 163 control panel features Arrow Menu keys, which reduce the number of buttons for simpler operability, and the new Flippable One-Touch key menu accommodates more One-Touch keys in a smaller space.
The two-tone earth colour of this practical design makes output pages easier to see. The highly functional and compact design of the bizhub 163 helps keep set-up space to a minimum for ideal in-office placement.
