Metadata and Automatic upload mode.

basICColor Catch provides measurement data that can handle additional information that ChromaChcker Cloud is capable of interpreting. To manage metadata edit Job — click right mouse button on the Job list:

Go to the tab called "Notes" 

There are variables that enable efficient data capturing automatization.

The Key for Auto track recognition is "Intention" If you want system auto-recognize data (send a file to proper tool/ track) use this field – put here a unique name - and use the same in Press/ track or Instrument/Target settings.

 

For better Job description You may also specify: 

  • Printer (will be recognized as a Press name)
  • Media (Paper name)
  • Customer (Customer)
  • Meas. Series (use for Operator name — when more than one operators is working with specific device that information can help identifying him) 
  • Print-ID (Job ID

 

There is one more field: User Name which ChromaChecker interpret as Job Name.

When scanning this field is easy to enter by the operator

The operator can enter manually Job name (or Job Number) or he can use a barcode reader to scan printed on the sheet barcode. That makes a process faster and the operator will not make any mistake when entering Job name.  It is easy to implement bar codes - most of the RIPs enables to print job name (just change the font to Code39 or similar).


Automatic data upload requires setting SOAP connection.

Two steps are required:

  1. A SOAP account has to be activated on ChromaChecker web site,  

    Click on User Account Icon —> select SOAP account.

                 

  2. Catch for auto upload requires activating SOAP connection. Go to Catch Preferences

        
    Server/ Login/ Password information on the website and in application preferences must be equal.  

    To check if the connection is working and account ready to receive measurement check Status for both Instrument and Print Inspectors – system will return information about a subscription. 
  3. In the tool's preferences set proper auto–recognition parameters. Set the same value for "Intention" in "Notes" section of Job and Track or Instrument/ Target Preferences.


    Example 1 - Instrument Inspector


    Set the Intention parameter (Edit Catch Job Template — right click on Job name)



    go to Instrument/ Target Preferences and setup auto-recognition string:
