GMG launches matte OBA proofing media

Friday, August 19, 2016

Press release from the issuing company

GMG ProofMedia studio OBA matte 150 is best choice for proofing uncoated production papers and FOGRA52 printing condition

Tuebingen, Germany – GMG, a leading developer of high-end color management and proofing solutions, announces the launch of GMG ProofMedia studio OBA matte 150. This is GMG’s first matte surface proofing media containing high Optical Brightening Agents (OBAs). It has been developed for highly accurate proofing and the closest visual match of commonly used uncoated production papers. 

In the past, it was problematic for design agencies, pre-press and print companies to deliver a visual match between proofs and prints, even with good colorimetric measurement, as matte proofing media contains no or too little fluorescence. This issue can be solved with GMG’s new high OBA contained matte 150 media. Featuring fluorescent levels comparable to popular production papers, proofs printed on GMG ProofMedia studio OBA matte 150 deliver good visual matches to final production. This includes the FOGRA52 printing condition.

GMG OBA studio matte 150 not only contains high OBA, but also has a higher brightness level. As a result, OBA matte 150 provides a larger color gamut in highlight areas compared to many other proof media. 

The main features of GMG ProofMedia studio OBA matte 150 are:

  • the surface and color characteristics make it possible to achieve a visual match between proofs and prints for popular uncoated production papers 
  • the FOGRA52 printing condition can be simulated perfectly
  • the paper tint of L* 97; a* 2,5; b* -10 provides a larger color gamut in highlight areas compared to most proof media
  • it is recyclable 
  • it is available in 17, 24, 42 and 44-inch widths
