Configuring the Media Creation Service

The Medical Workstation Media Creation Service helps the end-user burn files to a disc for viewing on computers independent of the Medical Workstation. Only administrators can configure this service. The Medical Workstation Media Creation Service works with any CD or DVD burner/writer. Additionally, there is special integration with the Primera Disc Publisher (more automation and labelling). If you are going to use the Primera Disc Publisher and PT Burn Service, make sure they are configured before setting up and turning on the Media Creation Service.

Perform the following steps to set up and configure the Media Creation Service:

  1. Select the Service Manager icon at the bottom of the window.

    Service Manager icon
  2. Select the Media Creation Configuration icon at the top of the window.

  8. You can also include other files and folders, such as an auto run file (which causes the disc to automatically load the Viewer and any other files on the disc whenever the disc is first inserted into a computer). Use the fields in the Folders and the Files groups to select the folders and files.

    • To add files or folders, click the appropriate Add button. Depending on which button is clicked, either the Open dialog to select files, or a Browse For dialog to select folders appears. Navigate to the location of the folder or file and click OK.

    • Remove items by making a selection in one of the lists and then clicking its Remove button. This removes items from the burn process.

  9. When configuration is complete, click the Save button on the bottom right corner of the Media Configuration Dialog box.

  1. On the Media Configuration Dialog, click the Media Jobs Maintenance button.
