Use a print MIS media database in Command WorkStation

To use the media database entries from the print MIS device, you must connect each database entry to a calibration file.

Print MIS devices manage media types differently from Command WorkStation. The media sizes are saved in a database, but the database entries do not contain details of print settings.

  1. In Server Manager: On the sidebar, click Printers, and select a printer. In the printer's tree view, select a media. On the Media tab, expand the Media Configuration panel.
  2. Create a new media.

    The name you define will be overwritten later with the media ID from the print MIS database.

    It is recommended that you create a media for each MIS media that you want to import. Creating media helps you to identify and organize the imported media later.

  3. Click Load from MIS.

    The Load Media from MIS dialog box opens. It displays a list of available media from the print MIS media database.

  4. Select a media from the list, and click Load.

    The media is renamed to the media ID from the print MIS media database.

  5. Click Media Mapping.
  6. Map the print MIS media to a calibration file, based on the most appropriate resolution and color mode. You can map multiple calibration files to one print MIS media.
  7. Click Save.

You can remove mapped media that you no longer need by clicking Manage Media.
