GMG presents new and products at Drupa

Press release from the issuing company

Tuebingen (04.03.2008) - GMG has concentrated totally on Drupa by developing new products and advanced versions of existing ones. New products will be presented in both the software and the media sector.

Visitors to the exhibition can expect a major advance in the field of proofing. The new versions of ColorProof, DotProof, and FlexoProof focus on additional functions, even easier handling, and intuitive support of the various industry standards. That is just one of the highlights at the GMG booth – not only for existing GMG users, but for all businesses that need to produce color-accurate contract proofs reliably, simply and repeatably. The software solutions feature the new Adobe PDF Print Engine technology.

In the color management sector, users will be able to see “ColorMaster in a Box” for the first time. Based on GMG ColorServer, this is an attractive product for companies – such as advertising agencies or prepress businesses – that want to keep their data in the RGB color space for as long as possible. Only at the very last minute, when the printing process has been definitively defined, are the RGB data separated into the required CMYK target color space using GMG ColorServer. Vector data can be created directly in the GMG ColorMaster color space and then converted into the target color space in preconfigured hot folders by CMYK-to-CMYK conversion using high-quality GMG 4D profiles. GMG supplies predefined settings for all important target color spaces, making it very easy for the user to set up an automated workflow. In addition, GMG ColorMaster offers a color space that covers all common printing gamuts, and is also available as an ICC profile for retouching images in Photoshop. This approach is supported by a DVD containing video sequences that explain how to set up the workflows and enable every user to create and use workflows themselves in a minimum of time.

One completely new product is GMG Connect. This software solution permits simple integration of GMG products in Prinergy, Esko and Dalim workflow environments. The software is additionally of great benefit for efficient remote proofing, enabling cross-platform checking of print job statuses via the Internet, for example.

The presentation for visitors will also include the two GMG products GMG PrintControl, software for standardizing the printing process from start to finish, and GMG RapidCheck, verification software that takes just a few mouse click to check compliance with printing process standards.

In the media sector, the successful GMG media offering is being expanded to include three new papers. The individual products are a new 140 gram matt paper, a 250 gram gloss paper, and a new 76 gram newsprint paper.

“Since Drupa 2004 marked the start of four years of continuous growth, we have very high hopes for this year's Drupa, too. We expect that our new and advanced products will enable us to attract new customers for GMG products, especially from the printing sector, in addition to our existing clientele. GMG will be exhibiting on a 260 m2 booth at Drupa (Hall 8b, Booth A11), where the GMG staff and our authorized retail partners will be more than willing to help and advice visitors," says Robert Weihing, CEO of GMG GmbH & Co. KG.
