GMG ColorProof 4.5 Incorporates PDF Print Engine Tech

Thursday, March 27, 2008

Press release from the issuing company

Tuebingen (03.26.2008) – GMG, supplier of high-end color management and proofing solutions, today announced that its ColorProof version 4.5.2 will incorporate new RIP interpreter technology based on the latest Adobe PDF Print Engine technology.

PDF has been accepted as the de facto standard for dependable and more secure electronic information exchange in the graphic arts industry. Adobe Acrobat is the leading software for streamlining creative workflows and managing PDF files. Implementation of the Adobe PDF Print Engine technology in GMG ColorProof now guarantees 100% compatibility with Adobe Acrobat software and Adobe Creative Suite versions 2 and 3. For GMG users, this means that GMG ColorProof produces precisely the same results as displayed in Adobe Acrobat.

Additional benefits include enhanced font handling with fewer errors, optimized transparency handling and qualitatively better support of PDF and PDX files. Further, new PDF specifications can be implemented much faster than in previous versions.

In addition to integrating Adobe PDF Print Engine technology, GMG ColorProof 4.5.2 also features other new functions, such as:

- Halftone proof support of the HP Z 6100
- The high-quality mode of the Epson 4880, 7880 and 9880 with smoother appearance, e.g. for photo                prints
- High-speed printing for form proofs, likewise for the Epson 4880, 7880 and 9880
- 16-bit support for data import
Version 4.5.2 is available free of charge to users of GMG ColorProof 4.5 and customers with a service agreement. Owners of an older version can purchase the update from authorized GMG dealers.

Adobe PDF Print Engine technology will be integrated not only in GMG ColorProof, but also in GMG DotProof, GMG FlexoProof, GMG ColorServer, and GMG InkOptimizer. The new versions will be available starting in March.

"GMG is dedicated to supporting standards. Since Adobe is the RIP standard in the graphic arts industry, it was only logical for GMG to go for this standard in its software as well. This enables us to guarantee the support of complex workflows," says Jawdatt Mawassii, Vice President Business Development and Strategy of GMG GmbH & Co. KG.

"Adobe is pleased that GMG has adopted the Adobe PDF Print Engine technology at the heart of its software," said Raman Nagpal, director for product management and engineering, Print Technologies at Adobe. "GMG is growing rapidly in the proofing sector and Adobe's technology is helping them to address market segments such as gravure printing, packaging and flexo."
