Color management software.
* GMG has launched Version 4.7 of its GMG ColorServer and GMG InkOptimizer color management systems, together with an update of the GMG SmartProfiler profiling and calibration tool to Version 1.5. GMG says the new versions are characterized by improved user-friendliness and maximized production reliability. The GMG ColorServer color management software performs fully automatic color space conversion on RGB, CMYK, and mixed data, in order to obtain uniform color standards. GMG InkOptimizer has been in use for several years for automatically reducing the amount of chromatic ink used, thereby improving priming properties and enabling cost savings. GMG ColorServer and GMG InkOptimizer now feature newly revised DeviceLink color profiles, but also preconfigured hotfolders for all standard printing conditions. The GMG Hotfolder Creation Wizard helps users to create new hotfolders, using predefined settings provided for all international printing standards. As a result, possible sources of error are already avoided when creating workflows. A standard Web browser suffices to enable multiple users to access GMG ColorServer and InkOptimizer simultaneously to convert PDF files and monitor their processing. An Ink Saving Report integrated in the software shows at a glance how much printing ink was actually saved when processing a file with GMG InkOptimizer. Statistics are generated for each job, indicating the quantity of printing ink required for each color separation, with and without GMG InkOptimizer profiles.
