GMG releases GMG ColorProof driver for HP Z3100 printer

Press release from the issuing company

Tuebingen (September 18th, 2007) – GMG, supplier of high-end color management and proofing solutions, announces it has released a GMG ColorProof driver for the HP DesignJet Z3100 printer. In doing so, users can take advantage of all the benefits of an internal spectrophotometer, along with an expanded color gamut. 
The HP DesignJet Z3100 digital inkjet printer is designed to create proofs with twelve color units: light versions of CMYK, traditional MYK, RGB, a light black (grey) and a gloss enhancer. With these twelve units and the GMG ColorProof system, the user is able to print a much wider gamut of colors than the traditional four-color system. For example, spot color, Hexachrome® and Opaltone color gamuts are reproduced much truer.
GMG ColorProof is able to operate the HP DesignJet Z3100 — with its internal spectrophotometer — much like the HP DesignJet Z2100. Thus, solutions such as GMG ProofControl unbundled and the GMG Remote Calibration Wizard can be implemented with the HP DesignJet Z3100 printer. GMG ProofControl unbundled, is a complete proof verification system, allowing automatic monitoring and recalibration of the printer, ensuring that every proof leaving the printer is a high-quality GMG contract proof. With the help of the internal spectrophotometer, every proof on the HP DesignJet Z3100 can be automatically verified. GMG Remote Calibration Wizard is an easy to use remote calibration tool for GMG ColorProof that supports wizard-based calibration and recalibration of printers at remote proofing sites, without purchasing or installing the ColorProof application themselves. The free, standalone application allows a remote printer to be calibrated with the help of a host ColorProof system — automatically, without any user intervention.
"The HP DesignJet Z2100 printer was very significant when introduced a year ago. With its internal spectrophotometer, it allowed GMG to provide some extremely easy to use systems for novice users," comments Robert Weihing, Managing Director of GMG. "Now, with the HP DesignJet Z3100, GMG is able to provide the same user-friendly features, along with an extended color gamut, to reproduce special colors.”
