GMG updates ColorServer and SmartProfiler

Press release from the issuing company

Tuebingen – GMG, developer and supplier of high-end color management and proofing solutions, has announced updated versions of its established color management software products GMG ColorServer and GMG InkOptimizer, as well as an update of the profiling and printer calibration tool GMG SmartProfiler.

In version 4.6.2 of GMG ColorServer and GMG InkOptimizer the new Windows 7 operating systems is supported, as well as the latest advances in computer hardware with 64-bit computing.

The number of included reference profiles has been updated to allow fast and efficient usage directly after installation. Based on the latest Adobe PDF library, the products ensure enhanced production reliability and high-end color quality at any time by any user.

GMG ColorServer 4.6.2 is the base for a modular scalable software platform. As different markets – like digital printing, large format printing or commercial printing and prepress – have different color management requirements, additional ColorServer versions, tailored for market segments, will be available in the future. These ColorServer versions will be further preconfigured for different applications and printer configurations to allow out of the box production and enhance ease of use.

GMG SmartProfiler is a wizard providing customers the possibility to calibrate and profile different output devices, such as digital presses or large format systems, easily and without profound knowledge of color management. After close cooperation with customers the ease of use of the software has been significantly improved. New tools analyze the condition of the printer as a first step. This allows customers choosing the optimum profiling strategy and to detect if the printer might need maintenance before profiling starts. Additionally the printer-dependent presets for fast and simple profiling and calibration have been optimized.

GMG SmartProfiler offers international language support for English, German, French, Spanish, Italian, Portuguese, Chinese Simplified, Chinese Traditional, Japanese and Korean.

"Our color management products offer great benefits and have huge potential for our customers," says Paul Willems, CEO of GMG GmbH & Co. KG. "Color management is more and more important, especially in market segments such as large format and digital printing. This is confirmed by the increasing number of partners we have in this area, like HP, Mimaki and Roland. We expect more to come in the future and will work hard to be the benchmark for color management standardization tools", he adds.

At IPEX, GMG color management solutions will be demonstrated on the GMG stand (Hall 9-E322) as well as on the partner stands of HP (Hall 12-AB150), Mimaki Europe BV (Hall 12-C120) and Roland DG (UK) (Hall 12-C140).
