Digital Color Printer
Color Video Printer
Sony’s UP-20 Series has been well received by customers requiring high-quality A6-size color
prints in applications such as ultrasound and endoscopy, and for use in optical camera systems.
Giving customers the additional benefits of an extra-compact design, the UP-D25MD and UP25MD strengthen this popular lineup of digital and analog printing solutions. As these units are
smaller than conventional printers, they fit more easily into space-constrained environments, and
can be rack-mounted, alongside other equipment, on medical carts.
With their extra-compact lightweight bodies, the UP-D25MD and UP-25MD are ideal for use in a
wide range of medical applications.

Compact Size
The UP-D25MD and the UP-25MD share a common
design. They are the most compact of the UP-20 Series,
and are smaller than conventional printers. This means
they can fit into smaller spaces and - as their foot
positions are identical to those of their predecessors,
the UP-D23MD and UP-21MD, – they even help simplify
the task of printer replacement.
The shared dimensions of the UP-D25MD and
UP-25MD are approximately 212 (W) x 98 (H) x 398
(D) mm (8 3/8 x 3 7/8 x 15 5/8 inches)
Useful Front Operation and User-friendly LCD Display
The UP-D25MD and UP-25MD are designed with a
convenient front panel that enables quick and easy
insertion of ribbon cartridges and print media.
UP-D25MD (The UP-25MD also has an identical structure.)
Using the front LCD display, users can conveniently
operate settings and color adjustment. This display
also shows error messages and the print media type,
making it easy for users to quickly check and confirm
this information.
Print Media Variation
For additional customer convenience, the UP-D25MD
and UP-25MD use the same UPC-21L and UPC-21S print
media as other UP-20 Series printers. To meet growing
demand for higher image quality and durability,
the UP-D25MD and UP-25MD also use UPC-24LA and
UPC-24SA self-lamination media. This type of media has
a protective layer on each print, which is resistant to
light, heat, water, humidity, and fingerprints. It therefore
offers long-term durability and higher image quality.

Superb Print Quality and Color at 423dpi
Color Adjustment and Gray Balance
(Color Balance*1)
Incorporating dye sublimation printing technology
from Sony, the UP-D25MD and UP-25MD can provide
photorealistic quality prints with a high resolution of
approximately 423dpi image reproductions.
The UP-D25MD and UP-25MD incorporate two types of
color adjustment function: the normal RGB adjustment
and an HSV function. The HSV function enables users
to adjust the hue, saturation and value of a selected
color only. With the UP-D25MD, users can check the
adjustment result in a preview window on the printer
driver GUI*2. In addition the UP-D25MD and UP-25MD
can print a nine-split image for color balance which
makes it easier for users to select the best colors (the
ones that most closely match user requirements) with
actual medical images. As well as simplifying selection,
these adjustment functions provide the most suitable
tonal range for various modalities.
Split-image Prints
Two- or four-split images can be printed on a single
sheet. With the UP-D25MD, this is selectable from the
printer driver.
