Sony released a new driver today for the Sony UP-DR200. The new v2.0 driver enables what Sony calls the “Cut Mode” for the UP-DR200. When the cut mode is enabled the printer will perform an intermediary cut producing two smaller prints. In other words, media type 2UPC-R204 will produce a 4″x6″ print or, in cut mode, it will produce two 2″x6″ strips (photoboothers, this is what you’ve been asking for!). Media type 2UPC-R205 will produce a 5″x7″ print, or in cut mode, two 3.5″x5″ prints. Media type 2UPC-R206 will produce a 6″x8″ print or two 4″x6″ prints.
Our staff has been testing the beta driver for a few weeks now and it works like a champ. We also tested the 2″x6″ cut with a few of our Photobooth customers – they love it! (Visit PhotoBoothTalk.com for more booth news, info, forums.) The new v2.0 driver requires a firmware update (v1.14), both available from the Sony UP-DR200 support page.
