GMG introduces new proof media newsproof 76 for newspapers

(PresseBox) (Tuebingen, ) GMG, developer and supplier of highend color management and proofing solutions, announces today the launch of GMG NewsProof 76, a 76 gsm coated inkjet proof media, having the white point of typical newspapers and a matte coating, for the production of high quality contract proofs. GMG NewsProof 76 corresponds to standard newsprint so the user gets the visual impression of a newspaper.

With the introduction of GMG NewsProof 76, repro and prepress houses as well as ad agencies and printing companies involved in newspaper production, get a top quality media which significantly exceeds other papers presently available on the market in terms of the quality of the print results and product properties.

The main characteristics of the new GMG NewsProof 76 at a glance:

- The weight of 76 gsm is similar to many current newspaper media.

- The white point of the paper has been defined in such a way that typical newsprints can be simulated by a proof. The corresponding tolerances are tighter compared to those of other current newspaper proofing media, improving the reliability of proofing results and the color consistency.

- GMG NewsPaper 76 can be used in conjunction with both matte black and photo black inks, rendering time and cost intensive ink changes unnecessary.

- A special feature of GMG NewsProof 76 is that the paper has an extreme high ink limit and does not warp. The high ink tolerance means there is less overinking and matting effects, and there is less bleeding and fading of inks as well. GMG NewsProof 76 shows a more homogeneous surface and print result than other newspaper proofing papers.

- Despite its low weight, GMG NewsProof 76 has a good opacity and can be used on all common inkjet printers.

GMG NewsProof 76 replaces GMG NewsPaper 57 and NewsPaper 80 media. The GMG back label on the new proof media is a quality seal, guaranteeing perfect repeatability of highest proof quality. All GMG proof media are subject to permanent quality control by internal quality testing, assuring users that there are no fluctuations within or between batches.

The profiles supplied by GMG are perfectly matched to printer, paper and printing process. All available profiles are ready for download in the support area of GMG's website.

About the GMG family of products: GMG ColorProof, a color management software system, provides the most accurate way of calibrating digital inkjet proofing engines to produce digital contract color proofs, precisely matched to the printing press. GMG DotProof® enables users to generate contract quality halftone proofs, using the original bitmap data of the output RIP. Specifically tailored to the needs of the packaging industry is GMG FlexoProof, which supports specific flexo file formats and includes a complete Pantone® spot color library, along with other functions. GMG ColorServer is a tool for automatic color conversions - CMYKto-CMYK, RGBto-CMYK and RGBto-RGB - for more efficient workflows. 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 ProofControl is the ideal solution for instant, coloraccurate verification of proofs. GMG PrintControl is one single software for standardizing the press from start to finish. GMG RapidCheck is a verification tool to control the printing process at a click of the mouse. GMG Media is a range of proofingspecific papers and films for the most popular inkjet printers. They are manufactured to high tolerances for color critical applications, available in a range of sizes.
