2010 Award Winning Products

Good Design Gold Award 2010

Monochrome Multi Function Printer
[bizhub 423 / 363 / 283 / 223]

<Evaluation>

This model is by no means an entirely new model, but we would like to give it high marks for being the culmination of an attitude toward the development of multifunction printers that has involved several years of efforts. For a long time, the series has employed a tilt-type operating panel, a user interface that has undergone remarkable progress, and other aspects of both the hardware and software that demonstrate an unceasing quest to achieve the ideal device. We approve of its policy of continuing to produce good products without eliminating factors that increase costs, and the hardware displays a well-balanced unique strength of design.

Digital Color Press

<Evaluation>

The simple and noise-free external appearance is achieved by making the projected engine part symbolic. The large self-standing touch-panel display that can be placed anywhere on the unit and the excellent GUI are easy to use. Overall the product is well designed with quality hardware and software systems.

Spectrophotometer
[CM-5]

<Evaluation>

The CM-5 constructs the design framework based on easy-to-see display and easy-to-push angles of the controls. Ease of use and design features are excellently incorporated in the form, such as the measurement set position indicated as cylindrical stage which also works as a highlight of appearance design. By obtaining Color Universal Design certification with original UI (User Interface) display color setting that gives consideration to visibility for a variety of color perception types, the CM-5 raises expectation for the possibility for people of various color perception types to study colors.
