Where to buy

Overview

High speed, high quality black & white printing of medical images in a compact space-saving footprint with analogue and digital inputs
The UP-X898MD is a compact A6 medical grade black and white digital printer that can accept analogue video as well as PC-friendly digital USB signal inputs.

It’s designed to be integrated into a wide range of compatible medical imaging environments such as digital ultrasound systems, mobile C-arms or cardiac catheterisation laboratory. The high quality thermal print engine can produce hard copy prints of still images captured by these systems for use in patient records and referrals. For even greater convenience, printed still images can also be stored to a connected USB flash drive.

(Please note that images printed from the UP-X898MD are not to be used for diagnosis).

The UP-X898MD is a successor to the popular Sony UP-897 series of medical printers. Redesigned and upgraded, it offers several operational and ergonomic enhancements while retaining the same space-saving footprint and easy integration into medical carts. Usability is further enhanced by an enlarged LCD display panel and joystick for intuitive menu navigation.

Capable of delivering high-quality black & white prints in under two seconds. Advanced thermal printing technology delivers near-photo quality results using widely available print media.
Wireless Printing Capability
By using the optional UPA-WU10* Wireless Print System, you can achieve cable-free connection between the Sony printer (UP-971AD, UP-991AD, UP-X898MD and UP-DR80MD), mobile C-arm and other hospital imaging modalities.

Wireless Printing Capability
The optional UPA-WU10 Wireless Print System provides a cable-free connection between the UP-X898MD, the mobile C-arm and other hospital imaging modalities.

This all-in-one wireless printing solution also resolves the problem of limited space on medical carts, allowing connection between a medical imaging modality and an ‘off-cart’ printer without a lengthy USB cable.
