Tuebingen (July 30, 2004) – GMG, developers and marketers of high-end color management and proofing solutions, announces that the company will be attending Graph Expo 2004 (booth 5062), PIA/GATF Color Management Conference, Photokina (Hall 14.1, Stand B034), ProFlex 2004 (booth 50) and Digital Proof Forum during September, October and December. The variety of trade shows, focusing on commercial printing, flexography, color management, and professional photography, reveals a wide interest in GMG color management software. The highlight of GMG’s fall US trade show schedule will be the company’s attendance from October 10 to 13 in Chicago at Graph Expo and Converting Expo 2004, the largest, most comprehensive prepress, printing, converting and digital equipment trade show and conference in the Americas. Over 40,000 industry professionals are expected to attend to visit over 600 exhibitors. At booth 5062, GMG USA will demonstrate the full complement of GMG solutions that were introduced at Drupa 04. They include a focus on GMG ColorProof o4 for commercial printers, and GMG FlexoProof o4 for converters. GMG will also exhibit at the sixth annual PIA/GATF Color Management Conference to be held December 5-8 in Phoenix, Arizona. The conference is entirely focused on color management and attracts industry leading publishers, ad agencies, photographers, printers, consultants and integrators from around the world who converge to see the latest tools, workflows, and trends in producing high-quality color. The event includes in-depth seminars, discussion groups, and hands-on product sessions. Photokina, held in Cologne, Germany from September 28 through October 3, is the international destination for all involved in photography and imaging. It’s where the newest gear and innovations are announced, as well as innovations that set the pace for the photography world for years to come. Visitors attend from over 65 countries, and exhibitors come from around the globe. At Hall 14.1, Stand B034, GMG will focus on GMG CamFlow, an automated workflow application handling RGB data from various systems in different color spaces, that automatically neutralizes, optimizes, sharpens and separates image files into the desired target color space. It enables photographers to visualize digital camera data as CMYK prints in various standard color spaces on standard inkjet printers. GMG will also demonstrate GMG ColorProof o4 and GMG ProofControl o4. During September 14-15, at the University in Stuttgart, Germany GMG, in booth 50, will be one of the 90 companies exhibiting at ProFlex, the flexographic conference and exhibition sponsored by the DFTA. The company will be featuring GMG FlexoProof o4 and GMG ProofControl o4. The 4th Digital Proof Forum takes place September 21 and 22, at the University (Hochschule der Medien) in Stuttgart, Germany. Developers of digital proof solutions will present their systems and compete to generate the best proofs. GMG will participate with GMG ColorProof o4, and has the goal to score as exceptionally as it has in previous similar events in Europe and the States. Seminars will accompany the event. “Our company had a very successful Drupa 04, and we hope to capitalize on that same momentum as we enter the fall exhibition season,” notes Robert Weihing, GMG's CEO. “We rely on a visual demonstration for prospects to see the true value of GMG products. Printers, converters, prepress shops and photographers who observe how faithful our proofs are to press sheets become very strong candidates for GMG ColorProof and our other products, particularly at their price points. We are can’t wait for the opportunity to meet new partners at these five trade shows.“
