The UP-25MD is a high-quality printer designed for medical applications. It features a variety of analog video inputs for standard definition as well as high definition signals, and is compatible with a wide range of medical imaging devices.

The printer's photo-quality dye sublimation technology ensures that prints are durable and long-lasting. It is compatible with our traditional UPC-21S and UPC-21L media series. It seals and protects printed images against environmental hazards. Colors can be adjusted using RGB or HSV color spaces to match monitor output and to optimize color reproduction accuracy.


Dye Sublimation printing
Dye Sublimation printing is an ideal technology for making high quality, accurate photographic prints. The richly saturated images created by this printer are extremely stable and have a very long life-time: ideal for archiving with surgical reports.

Choice of self-laminating and standard media
The UP-25MD accepts two sizes of media (126 x 96mm and 96 x 72mm) in both standard and self-laminating versions. The laminating media provides an extra barrier to protect the print from humidity, spills, finger marks and scratches. It also improves the appearance of the prints.

User friendly controls and front loading
User controls and access for media replacement are available on the front panel, making it possible to fit the device into compact spaces, where only the front is visible.

Predictable print costs
Each print uses exactly the same quantity of ribbon and paper, so users can budget precisely for media costs. This also means that paper and print consumables are always changed at the same time, resulting in a major saving in maintenance tasks.

Analog inputs
The UP-25MD accepts analog signals from a very wide range of medical equipment. A choice of Composite, S-Video and Component (SD and HD) inputs provides a high degree of compatibility with medical imaging devices.

Color adjustment
As well as the normal lighter/darker and RGB adjustment, the UP-25MD also features HSV, for more detailed image manipulation and correction. HSV (hue, saturation and value) will, for example, allow users to boost or reduce the intensity of a single color, without affecting the overall color balance of the image. Color settings can be stored for later use.

Designed to fit on endoscopic trolleys
The footprint of the UP-25MD is optimized to allow installation on standard endoscopic trolleys. The feet supporting the printer are in exactly the same position as previous models, making it easy to upgrade.

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