Sony UP-971AD Printer

The UP-971AD is the successor to the UP-970AD, it is a hybrid A4 black and white printer which accepts both analog and digital input.

Accepts both digital and analogue video input signals

The UP-971AD can receive digital as well as analogue signals, allowing the printer to support both types of C-arm system. It also can receive signals from two different integrated systems – i.e. analogue from a C-arm and digital from an ultrasound system.

High quality printing

Using Sony’s direct thermal printing technology, the UP-971AD delivers photo-quality black & white prints with a high resolution of approximately 325 dpi.

High speed printing

In standard mode, the UP-971AD can deliver a print in approximately 8 seconds.

More compact, more visible

The UP-991AD has a compact design with dimensions of approximately 316 (W) x 132.5 (H) x 265 (D) mm (12 1/2 x 5 1/4 x 10 1/2 inches) – 40mm smaller in depth than its predecessor. At the same time, the size of the LCD display panel is increased, and the control panel features a white LED backlight that offers clear visibility regardless of ambient light levels.

Enhanced operability

All function keys of the UP-971AD are located on the front panel, allowing easy setup and operation when the printer is installed in a medical cart. In addition, separate knobs on the front panel allow easy adjustment of both contrast and brightness and an auto lock function that prevents inadvertent alteration of settings.

Multi-picture modes

As well as printing a single picture, the UP-971AD also offers a choice of two-, four- and six-way split printing of images on a single sheet when connected to an analogue video signal. The ‘Multi’ button on the front panel allows quick switching between ’Single-picture’ and ‘Multi-picture’ modes. With digital input signals, the printer can provide two or four split pictures on one sheet (NB: Multi button does not function with digital input).

Panoramic printing

When connected to a digital signal, the UP-971AD can produce panoramic prints up to a maximum of 600mm long.

Visual print quality control

Optimum print settings can be compared and chosen from a ‘collage’ print of nine pictures with different values for brightness, contrast, tone or sharpness.

Quick guide print

Quick instruction guides for different print operations can be selected, via the front control panel, and printed out for your easy reference so that you do not need to refer to the user manual.*
