Stephane Labrousse, General Manager, Business Communications Solutions Marketing, Sony Europe, said: “The “Print by Sony” family is constantly evolving to meet the increasing demand for lab quality printing in the retail environment at affordable cost.” He added: “The Sony UPX-C100 is a high quality yet simple solution for small retailers looking to start their own passport/ID business.”
High quality, versatile and simple to use
The Sony UPX-C100 produces sharp, high-resolution, 5 megapixel, images of exceptional quality on three separately sized print media1 allowing users to create various types of printout, including a combination of 30 different picture sizes. It incorporates modern instant printing technology, dye sublimation, to produce photo-quality prints that offer crisp and vibrant colours with natural, continuous tones.

From image-capture to printing, the UPX-C100 is simple to operate. All functions – including image size adjustments - can be performed easily from the digital still camera. The camera’s 1 90 x 101 mm (3.5 x 4 inches), 101 x 141 mm (4 x 5 5/8 inches), and 101 x 152 mm (4 x 6 inches). Auto Review function allows the operator to review the captured image while in Camera Mode. This innovative feature saves time because, unlike most other digital systems, users do not have to switch from Camera Mode to Play Mode to review and print photos.
Sony C100 Colour-guide function
In addition to offering four preset frame sizes to choose from, the Sony C100 system can adjust the position of the head and chin lines, as well as the right and left lines, to create a customized frame. Using the colour-guide function, the UPX-C100 allows the operator to make hue, contrast, and tone adjustments easily to enhance image quality.
