GMG heads to Fespa Digital 2012 with repeatable perfection in wide-format
GMG's color management expertise, well known in the proofing sector, is one of the three key pillars of this new GMG wide-format application. The GMG solution calibrates and drives more than 750 wide-format printing devices and cutting systems, making identical repetition on different output devices a reality - almost from a standing start.
A further pillar is the extremely flexible Editor which features numerous useful and easy-to-use expert tools and functions. Its impressive processing speed, and the fact that both Mac and PC users can work with the user-friendly GMG solution, will not only fit the needs of creative thinkers, but also those of production-oriented users.
Economic efficiency represents the third pillar of the new GMG wide-format solution. GMG will be presenting a modular system. Thanks to the dynamically scalable GMG license, growth-related investments are only necessary where additional capacity really is needed. An integrated ink-saving function additionally maximizes cost and ecological effectiveness.
"GMG is proud to be exhibiting at Fespa for the first time. Over the last few years our solutions have become very well established within traditional proofing and color management applications worldwide. Today, we are perfectly placed to meet the needs of the digital wide format print production markets with complete, best-in-class production solutions," says Ian Scott, Managing Director of GMG GmbH & Co. KG.
About the GMG solutions: Based on the 4-D color-transformation engine, the proofing solution GMG ColorProof provides the most accurate way of calibrating digital inkjet proofing devices to produce contract color proofs precisely matched to the printing process. GMG DotProof® enables users to generate contract quality halftone proofs, using the original bitmap data of the output RIP. GMG FlexoProof is specifically tailored to the needs of the packaging industry, simulating any kind of substrate structures and spot colors in the halftone proof. GMG ProofControl guarantees reliable and complete quality control of digital color proofs based on a defined standard. GMG ProofMedia is a range of proofing-specific substrates manufactured to strict tolerances specifically for color critical applications. www.proofr.com is an internet platform enabling online proofing services in GMG quality through a worldwide network of remote proofing locations. GMG ColorServer, with automatic hotfolder technology and based on the Adobe® PDF Library, provides fully automatic color conversions for all printing processes - CMYK-to-CMYK, RGB-to-CMYK and RGB-to-RGB. The GMG SmartProfiler wizard allows the profiling and calibration of different output devices, such as digital presses or large format systems, easily and quickly. GMG InkOptimizer automatically reduces chromatic colors, thus providing cost savings by reducing unnecessary ink usage, along with better print stability on press. GMG FlowConnect enables the complete integration of the color management solutions GMG ColorServer and GMG InkOptimizer into current workflow systems. GMG PrintControl is an easy-to-use solution for standardizing printing presses and effective process control in the pressroom.
