Sony UP-DF500 Filmstation

In today’s health care environment, time, space and money are all scarce. That’s why Sony has reinvented dry film imaging, to keep pace with new realities, including the need to output images faster. Increase your throughput to 130 prints an hour with two Film Stations and a Film Station Link Cable!

The Sony Film Station Dry Film Imager is the only imager of its kind to give you an installation choice of horizontal or vertical. Thanks to its compact size and vertical adaptability, this imager can be easily integrated into any radiology environment, particularly
where space is at a premium. In fact, the Film Station unit is so compact that it can be placed on a desktop in a traditional x-ray viewing room or in an empty slot beneath a doctors desk.
With its flexible installation capability, seamless mobility, easy-to-read LCD front panel and simple-to-load film, the Film Station imager stands up to the competition in more ways than one.

Reliable Diagnostic Image Quality

Flexible design is only one of the enhanced features of the Film Station printer. As a result of high-resolution 320dpi thermal head technology, Film Station images are excellent in quality. 4,096 shades of gray contribute to the accuracy of every diagnosis, and a maximum density (D-Max) rating of greater than 3.2 produces outstanding contrast ratio and exceptional black levels.
An automatic calibration feature delivers consistent image quality. Manual access to full calibration functions via the front panel controls adds user flexibility. These innovative features, plus a combination of default-fixed and user-programmable gamma settings, provide precise, diagnostic image output.

A Winning Combination of Features

By combining a newly developed print head with Sony’s new blue thermal film (model UPT-517BL), the Film Station unit offers an elevated level of image quality that was virtually impossible to achieve on a thermal printer until now. Sony-engineered UPT-517BL thermal film media was specifically designed for use with the Film Station printer. This newly formulized 14×17 film maintains a careful balance of transparency and density to reproduce precise and stable diagnostic images. And with edge-to-edge printing, the Film Station imager maximizes the entire film surface for the most complete image coverage.
An added feature called full-time head protection positions the Film Station imager’s print head in a park mode when idle, a feature that is ideal for mobile applications.
PLUS – Film Station can hold up to 1,112 images with it’s 7 gigabyte HD for image spooling ( 1,112 films of 12 up (512×512) 667 films of 20 Up (512×512)

The Finishing Touch: Built-in Dicom Compatibility

The Film Station imager was designed with a built-in Dicom 3.0 interface that can be accessed using a Windows® laptop with an internet browser, making installation fast and simple. This interface also features an e-mail notification system that can automatically send out an e-mail when the Film Station unit has a technical problem.
