Remaining Media Estimation function on a Canon imagePROGRAF printer
The Remaining Media Estimation function on a Canon imagePROGRAF printer is a fantastic tool, it uses the media thickness and roll rotation to estimate how much media is left on the roll. If you don’t have enough on the roll to complete the print-run, it’ll tell you.
But we haven’t abandoned the older and highly accurate Barcode system of media management. Using this function, the remaining media amount is managed by printing a small barcode on the leading edge of the media when removing a roll. When you reload that media, the printer reads it, sets everything up accordingly and trims off the barcode. In addition, it also prints the information in plain text, very helpful when taking a part roll from the rack, you’ll know exactly what it is and how much is left before loading it.
So, whether you require an estimate or barcode for your remaining media, you can apply the management method that suits you and your printing environment.
