A6 Analog and Digital Black and White Thermal Printer
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 UP-991AD, mobile C-arm and other hospital imaging modalities.
* Product availability of the UPA-WU10 may vary according to the sales area. For more information, please
contact your nearest Sony sales office or an authorised dealer.
High print quality
Advanced thermal printing technology enables photo-quality black & white prints with a high resolution up
to approximately 325 dpi and grey levels up to 256 steps.
A6 prints in less than two seconds
While operating in high speed mode, the UP-X898MD can produce A6-size prints in approximately 1.9
seconds (when used with UPP-110HG or UPP-110S print media).
Hybrid operation with analogue and digital inputs
A choice of analogue composite video and PC-friendly digital USB inputs allows flexible use with a wide
range of modality devices.
Store pictures on a USB flash drive
The UP-X898MD can automatically store printed images from both USB and Video inputs onto a connected
USB storage device.
Compact, space-saving design
Measuring 88mm (H) x 154 mm (W) x 240 mm (D), the UP-X898MD has the same space-saving design as the
UP-897MD for easy, flexible integration into medical carts.
Enhanced operability
Building on the success of the popular UP-897MD, the UP-X898MD features an enlarged LCD panel that
displays printer settings, selected paper type and advisory messages. An intuitive joystick control allows
speedy menu navigation, while the new Auto Lock mode prevents unintentional changes to print settings.
Hard copy reference of print settings
For convenient reference, selected settings (Brightness, Contrast, Gamma and Sharpness) can optionally be
printed in a blank space on the print paper.
Uses widely available print media
Sony offers a choice of three high quality, widely available A6 thermal print media types to meet the needs
of different applications. Choose from the UPP-110HD, UPP-110S, or the UPP-110HG High Glossy Printing Paper
that produces glossy, long-lasting near-photo quality prints.
Wide PC compatibility
For maximum flexibility, a wide range of PC drivers are provided for Windows XP, Vista, 7 and 8 (32/64bit).
Quick guide print
Quick instruction guides for different print operations can be selected via the front control panel. They can
be printed out for easy reference without needing to refer to the user manual.*

Wireless Printing Capability
The optional UPA-WU10 Wireless Print System provides a cable-free connection between the UP-991AD, the
mobile C-arm and other hospital imaging modalities. This is ideal for busy clinical environments, where
modalities are constantly being moved between different examination rooms and ORs. 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.
** Product availability of the UPA-WU10 may vary according to the sales area. For more information, please
contact your nearest Sony sales office or an authorised dealer.
Compliance with Medical Safety Standards*
This device is compliant and certified for IEC 60601-1 and product safety standards in the U.S.A., Canada
