For GMG, a leading developer and supplier of high-end color management software solutions, the focus at this year’s FESPA Digital in Hamburg will be on the company’s color management solutions for the large-format printing sector. Consequently, GMG will be represented at the exhibition booths of Four Pees (hall A4, booth C66), HP (hall A4, booth C40/41), KIP Deutschland (hall A3, booth C60), and Neolt (hall A3, booth A50).

The GMG ColorServer and GMG SmartProfiler color management solutions assist companies in the large-format printing sector in their efforts to meet the growing demands imposed on color quality and consistency. One of the challenges in this context is to achieve identical color results on multiple output devices or in mixed production environments, where offset and digital or large-format printing can be encountered together. In these cases, the printed end products are intended to look exactly the same, regardless of which printing process is used.

So that colors have an identical appearance in different printing processes, GMG ColorServer automatically converts the data to the corresponding output color space. GMG SmartProfiler is used to create the necessary color profiles and printer calibrations for different output systems. ISO Coated V2 usually serves as the reference standard.

At the HP booth, GMG will be presenting a GMG ColorServer Suite for HP Scitex printers that is tailored specifically to the needs of HP Scitex users. The software package includes the GMG ColorServer/SmartProfiler color management solutions, preconfigured hotfolders, and color profiles for instant use. This permits maximum repeatability in production, and consistent color results on any printing system and almost any substrate.

In addition, visitors to the exhibition will have the opportunity to gather information regarding further possible applications for GMG’s software-based color management in combination with a wide variety of digital large-format system solutions. For example, the exhibitors Four Pees, KIP Deutschland, and Neolt will be presenting a wide range of integration options for GMG ColorServer and GMG SmartProfiler. The solutions offer convincing versatility, flexibility and, on the bottom line, outstanding color quality.
