Utilizing Custom Media Profiles

Canon imagePROGRAF Series Printers allow for the addition of "Custom Media Types and Profiles" to be installed into the printer's firmware and driver. The Canon .am1x file sets printer parameters (ink density limits, print head height, media vacuum strength, media roll length, custom media name, etc.) to be used for each media type that can then be selected from both the printers control panel (when loading media) and the Printer Driver (when printing). Customizing the printer parameters stored in this .am1x file will help to maximize optimal quality for the various media types that are compatible with your imagePROGRAF Large Format Printer. The Canon Media Configuration Tool will allow you to import the .am1x into your printer.
