1. A system, comprising:
a print controller, comprising:
a Raster Image Processor (RIP); and
a controller configured to identify a logical page comprising a Page Description Language (PDL) and having an unmodifiable media attribute, wherein the unmodifiable media attribute for the logical page prevents a modification of a presentation of the logical page prior to rasterizing the logical page,
the controller is configured to process a job ticket to determine that the logical page has a media exception, wherein the media exception comprises a conflict between the unmodifiable media attribute for the logical page and a media attribute specified in the job ticket for the logical page,
the controller is configured, responsive to the logical page having the media exception and the unmodifiable media attribute, to direct the RIP to rasterize the logical page based on the unmodifiable media attribute by interpreting the PDL, and to modify raster data generated by the RIP for the logical page based on the media attribute specified in a job ticket for the logical page to resolve the media exception for the logical page.
