GMG to present new version 5.2 of GMG ColorProof

GMG ColorProof 5.2 features the brand-new Adobe® PDF Print Engine 2.5, advanced spot color handling, and the new GMG ProofControl Inline software module for fully automated proof verification for the new Epson Stylus Pro 4900, 7890 and 9890 printers

(PresseBox) (Tübingen, ) GMG, a leading developer and supplier of high-end color management software solutions, is showing version 5.2 of GMG ColorProof for the first time at Graph Expo in Chicago from October 3-6. Version 5.2 incorporates major innovations such as the integration of the new Adobe® PDF Print Engine 2.5 and support of the new Epson Stylus Pro 4900, 7890 and 9890 printers. The packaging market will benefit from a number of improvements to the SpotColor Editor.

GMG ColorProof 5.2 is compatible with the completely new GMG ProofControl Inline module, supporting the recently launched Epson 4900, 7890, 9890 proof printers as well as the 7900 and 9900 printers with an integrated measuring device. It provides time-saving, automated verification of contone proofs. Furthermore, the interaction of ProofControl Inline and the GMG AutoCalibrationWizard helps to keep these printers automatically calibrated.

Version 5.2 will be available for purchase at the end of the year.

INTEGRATION OF THE ADOBE® PDF PRINT ENGINE 2.5

The Adobe® PDF Print Engine 2.5 supports the latest PDF technologies and specifications providing, among others, exceptional reliability when proofing graphically complex effects created by any application. The most accurate compatibility with Adobe® Creative Suite 5 is guaranteed.

IMPROVED SPOTCOLOR EDITOR

GMG ColorProof 5.2 incorporates new, advanced tools for expert handling of spot colors, increasing efficiency by saving time and minimizing errors. It is now possible to create a spot color database with normalized paper tints. Based on GMG MX-profiles, an accurate paper tint can be applied during the process of proofing. A new feature is the ability to export a report showing spot colors, listing the spot color name, CMYK values, the target and current values, and even out of gamut colors according to current value estimates and delta E.

SUPPORT OF THE EPSON STYLUS PRO 4900, 7890 AND 9890 PRINTERS

With the help of the GMG AutoCalibrationWizard and an internal measuring device, Epson Stylus Pro 4900 (17''), 7890 (24'') and 9890 (44'') printers can be calibrated automatically without requiring any user intervention. The 4900 printer features a super-wide color gamut for the simulation of saturated spot colors and is very suitable for color-accurate remote proofing applications. The unique combination of the GMG printer driver, AutoCalibrationWizard and the GMG ProofStandard technology deliver remote proofing with the highest possible reliability and efficiency.

Compared to previous-generation printers, Epson Stylus Pro 4900, 7890 and 9890 printers will certainly impress the proofing market with faster print speeds and, therefore, increased productivity.

GMG PROOFCONTROL INLINE FOR FULLY AUTOMATED PROOFING

GMG ProofControl Inline is an additonal module for GMG ColorProof 5.2, allowing fully automated proofing and fast, error-free verification of contone proofs on Epson Stylus Pro printers with an integrated measuring device.

GMG ProofControl Inline automates selection of the correct target values and manual printing of proof labels within the Epson printer, making this "seal of quality" forgery-proof. Verification results can be seen within ColorProof, while measurement results of several GMG ColorProof 5.2 installations can be stored in one central database. If proof verification fails, the printer is automatically re-calibrated.

GMG ProofControl Inline is initially available for Epson Stylus Pro 4900, 7900, 9900, 7890 or 9890 printers with an integrated measuring device. Because user intervention is limited, the proof system can be successfully installed at sites where people are less skilled or who have little knowledge of digital proofing - for example, at advertising agencies, publishing offices or marketing departments.

GMG ProofControl, the company's well-known quality control software for digital proofs, is still the proof system of choice, consisting of GMG ColorProof 5.2 and proof printers that do not have an integrated measuring device. In facilities with different types of proof printers, GMG ProofControl Inline can be used along with version 1.5 - or more recent versions - of GMG ProofControl.

According to Paul Willems, CEO of GMG GmbH & Co. KG, the implementation of the latest features in GMG ColorProof 5.2, "fits the users' growing needs for more automated proofing workflows, very easy use of any software, and continually higher demands on productivity - as time and cost savings are more and more becoming crucial factors of company success. We are therefore convinced that our new version 5.2 represents a milestone in this direction while delivering GMG's renowned, highest possible contract proofing quality and production reliabilty according to our stringent quality standards."

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. 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.
