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 FilmStation 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 FilmStation 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 FilmStation 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 FilmStation printer. As a result of high-resolution 320dpi thermal head technology, FilmStation 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 FilmStation 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 FilmStation printer. This newly formulized 14x17 film maintains a careful balance of transparency and density to reproduce precise and stable diagnostic images. And with edge-to-edge printing, the FilmStation imager maximizes the entire film surface for the most complete image coverage. An added feature called full-time head protection positions the FilmStation imager's print head in a park mode when idle, a feature that is ideal for mobile applications. PLUS - FilmStation can hold up to 1,112 images with it's 7 gigabyte HD for image spooling ( 1,112 films of 12 up (512x512) 667 films of 20 Up (512x512)
The Finishing Touch: Built-in Dicom Compatibility
The FilmStation 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 FilmStation unit has a technical problem.
SONY DUAL TRAY FILMSTATION
Sony is pleased to introduce the next generation FilmStation, the UP-DF550 Dual-Tray Film Imager. This new addition to the FilmStation family is a unique imager built on the design platform of the UP-DF500 FilmStation Imager. The Dual-Tray Film Imager incorporates many of the same features of the UP-DF500 and adds a second output tray to accommodate multiple film sizes including 8x10, 10x12, 11x14 and 14x17. This added feature gives the user a built-in capability to produce film prints for a variety of modalities, as well as low-cost copies (ideal for patient referrals). The UP-DF550 can be mounted horizontally or vertically, which is a major advantage over large centralized film imagers. The UP-DF550 Dual-Tray Film Imager is an ideal choice for many modalities, including CT, MR,DR and CR.
