Product Overview


  • High print quality
    Advanced thermal printing technology enables photo-quality black & white prints with a high resolution up to approximately 325 dpi and gray levels up to 256 steps.
  • Dual cutter configuration
    In addition to the conventional upper cutter, a lower cutter has been added to the front door. This enables paper to be cut in a downward direction in addition to an upward direction. This increased flexibility in cutting direction expands location choices for printer installation. For example, even if the printer is installed immediately below the operation console of an ultrasound system, paper can easily be cut from the front. Furthermore, a safety mechanism automatically hides the lower cutter when opening the front panel to change the printing paper.
  • 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 analog and digital inputs
    A choice of analog 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.*
    *English only.
  • Wireless Printing Capability*
    The optional UPA-WU10 Wireless Print System allows cable-free connection between the UP-X898MD and surgical endoscopes, ultrasound systems, and other hospital imaging modalities. This is ideal for busy clinical environments, where modalities are constantly being moved between different operating rooms and treatment rooms. 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 requiring a lengthy USB cable.

    * This function is available to Sony digital printers with a 5-V USB-A output port. For more information regarding compatibility, please contact your nearest Sony office or an authorized dealer.

    This product is distributed to the US and EU as a medical device and satisfies product safety standards (e.g. IEC 60601-1).
