Where color management is now largely automated and standardized for the traditional 4-color printing processes, the demand for printing with an expanded color space – also referred to as ‚Extended Color Gamut‘ (or ECG) – is steadily increasing. ECG achieves a more vibrant print result and can replace the need for spot colors. This is especially interesting for packaging- and digital printing. These relatively new multi-color processes often present better results and more efficiency.

While large format printing might traditionally be associated with outdoor advertising – billboards, posters, vehicle graphics & more – in its purest form it’s simply another way to print any kind of imagery or graphic material. It presents a wealth of creative opportunity for artists and, in particular, photographers, as this fantastic project we worked on with Perou goes to show.

For many years, GMG has been the leading name when it comes to proofing and color management. The world's largest trade fair for the printing industry is an important milestone for the software company. At a 300 square meter booth this year, GMG is showing several pioneering solutions, many specifically tailored to the challenges of the packaging industry.

GMG continues the drive to simplify the use of its solutions. The new version 5.12 is automatically updating all proof standards as well as its special color libraries. The new software version also supports the new EPSON SureColor P75x0/P95x0 printer, enabling GMG users to stay ahead of the game when it comes to proofing speed.

In the coming year, the in-house academy of color management expert GMG will continue to offer its knowledge in a variety of ways. In addition to the free webinars, which globally attracted hundreds of viewers to the screens in 2019, multi-day workshops will be part of the spectrum supplied by the GMG Academy.

The optimized media library makes it easier to organize materials directly in GMG OpenColor. Previous version already made it possible to save custom media and reuse them later. As of GMG OpenColor 2.3, all customized substrates will be shown at one place and changes to the properties of a media are automatically applied to all projects in which the corresponding media is used. The new feature grants consistency in paper tint, even across different jobs, and with this automation ensures the correct output of proofs. In addition, operators of GMG OpenColor do not have to edit each project manually but can rely on considerable time savings.

GMG ProofMedia studio line has recently been enriched by a new media: GMG ProofMedia studio OBA semiMatte 200 - a substrate perfectly suited for proofing of products printed on coated material containing optical brightening agents (OBAs), such as magazines, brochures, or packaging.

The German-based manufacturer was able to prevail against four competitors at this year’s Label Industry Global Awards and take home the “Award for Innovation (for companies with up to 300 employees)” for its GMG Calibration Creation Wizard.

Ryerson University’s study, conducted in July 2019, has shown the capabilities of state-of-the-art extended gamut printing tools. Ten vendors participated in the study, including Tuebingen based color management specialist GMG with GMG OpenColor and GMG ColorServer. Two 7-color digital printing systems using CMYKOGV ink sets, Epson SureColor P9000 and HP Indigo 7900, were used for the evaluation of spot color reproduction during the test.

Color expert GMG will demonstrate several new solutions at Labelexpo Europe in Brussels. From September 24th to 27th, GMG bids welcome to visitors both at its own booth #6A22 and at the stands of selected partners. As the leading supplier of color management software solutions, GMG is characterized by innovation and progress, which highly reflects in its program for Labelexpo Europe.

GMG, the leading developer and provider of high-quality color management software solutions, will demonstrate at Labelexpo Europe, September 24-27, in Brussels its latest color management and workflow tools for the automated use of individual profiles at booth A22 in hall 6. "Our latest developments offer the packaging printing industry a large number of opportunities," says Roger Albert, Director Sales EMEA. "With the connection of GMG ColorServer to GMG OpenColor we pave the way for the automated use of customized profiles in the daily workflow."

GMG presents, GMG ColorProof 5.11 for the first-time a version that provides automated notifications about new software updates. The so-called patches can be installed directly out of the application. In addition, the update to Adobe PDF Print Engine 5.1 brings more compatibility with the latest Adobe products.

Ever since GMG was founded in 1984, the fascination with colors has stuck to the company and eventually led to its specialization in color management. GMG as a brand stands for more than just excellent color management solutions. Making its customers happy is one of the major objectives at the German based business. That is why GMG gives insight into a longstanding collaboration with one of those clients through a joint project with Lösch, who rely on GMG solutions since over 13 years.

GMG will be demonstrating its color management solutions for automated color conversion and ink optimization at Sign & Digital UK, on stand K36. Hear GMG's color expert Paul Bromley speaking on Thursday on the Main Stage in the panel session on print workflows. Find out more about color conversion across devices and substrates, automating color management within your workflow, and cutting consumables usage while improving color results, including your chance to ask questions.

Contact Originators, an innovation-led packaging origination and graphics management company, has collaborated with GMG to extend its capabilities with the installation of OpenColor along with the latest EPSON Surecolor P Series including the Violet Ink Set.

Color management expert GMG has published next year’s training program. The portfolio has been restructured to fulfill customer needs even better now. The two- to three-day workshops provide valuable first-hand expert knowledge in order to ensure economic processes and high-quality results.

What can be achieved with the state-of-the-art multicolor techniques? What quality levels can be obtained in multicolor proofing and separation? These questions were the focus of the first Multicolor Forum, organized by Fogra in Munich. In a "shootout," Fogra provides the nine leading technology providers the opportunity to compete in five different disciplines. The vendor-neutral event was aimed at obtaining useful results without selecting a winner.

Color management specialist GMG is releasing an upgrade to its GMG OpenColor profiling solution. Version 2.2 of the multi-award-winning software incorporates automatic, spectral data-based optimization of measurement data.

Color management experts GMG have further expanded their plugin for Adobe Photoshop in Version 1.3. Now color accurate separations from RGB into Multicolor color spaces are possible with up to seven colors. This is based on GMG OpenColor separation profiles. GMG product manager Peter Schöffler explains: "By using separation with the ChannelExtender, image data can be flexibly adapted to the printing process used." The conversion can be switched on or off at any stage during image processing. This way the final result can be directly simulate at any stage of processing. A further innovation: The ColorBoost function makes images more saturated and vivid.

Global Graphics Software and GMG announce a technology partnership that will overcome the color management and quality issues often found in digital packaging and label production. The partnership will make GMG’s award-winning technology available within Fundamentals, Global Graphics Software’s toolkit for building a digital front-end for inkjet presses. Fundamentals is a software and engineering services package that helps inkjet press manufacturers get to market quicker.

With GMG CoZone 2.2 you can easily approve content and images via the cloud. Integrated soft and hard proofing and an optimized workflow create a particularly powerful solution. Thanks to its ultra high resolution, users can now also review designs for large-format productions in detail.
