In addition the company will launch GMG FlexoProof 04, designed specifically for the needs of the flexo market; GMG InkOptimizer for impressive ink savings; and two colour management modules for digital photographers.
GMG ColorProof 04 software features numerous innovations and improvements. Particular emphasis has been placed on a high level of automation and a seamless integration into various workflow systems.
By integrating the ‘Medienkeil’ (Fogra colour bar) GMG answers the growing demand for standardisation and brings high-end colour management within the capability of all users. A complete package will be available before drupa which enables the user to verify and document the conformity of each proof by checking the colour bar.
The package consists of the application software, a Gretag spectrophotometer, and a small label printer. This application is also part of an extensive remote-proofing concept, which will be shown at drupa for the first time.
In a move that makes GMG proofing technology highly competitive, GMG has fundamentally changed its pricing structure, and software costs are now based on inkjet printer output sizes. Consequently, prices now start from Euro 2,750 for a typical A3+ device.
Focus on flexo
As a result of its resounding success in the packaging industry, the company will launch GMG FlexoProof 04 to answer the particular needs of this market segment with specific features, such as an out-of-register and a printing substrate (cardboard etc.) simulation.
The product also includes DotProof, GMG’s popular system which allows users to generate contract-quality halftone proofs.
Ink saving application
Another highlight at Drupa will be the GMG InkOptimizer. This application, which has been successfully field-tested at several large printers, automatically reduces the amount of chromatic colours, thus promising ink savings of up to 25 per cent on the press, whilst maintaining quality, and improving printing conditions.
RGB/CMYK colour handling
Processing RGB data from digital camera systems and keeping them media-independent is a growing requirement.
GMG CamFlow is an automated workflow application that handles RGB data from various systems in different colour spaces and automatically neutralises, optimises, sharpens and separates it into the desired target colour space.
GMG PhotoProof addresses professional photographers, by enabling them to visualise digital camera data as CMYK prints in various standard color spaces on standard inkjet printers.
“At Drupa the market will see the impressive results of our significant development efforts over the last months”, says Robert Weihing, GMG CEO.
“This is the first time that the company has presented such a broad range of products and, along with our new and contemporary corporate image, the event heralds a new phase in the company’s steady and continued expansion worldwide.
“Our aim is to provide highly competitive proofing products that deliver unrivalled quality and rapid return on investment to our customers”, Weihing concludes.
