GMG, a leading developer and supplier of high-end color management software solutions, has announced that the brand-new Canon imagePROGRAF iPF8300s and iPF6300s inkjet printers based on the LUCIA EX 8-color ink system are now fully supported by GMG ColorProof, GMG FlexoProof and GMG DotProof contone and halftone proofing software.

The solution is the result of a strong technological collaboration between GMG and Canon and is especially suitable for the photographic, print for pay and production markets, covering, for example, the short-run production of posters or point-of-sale material. The new Canon printers have been optimized for the range of GMG inkjet proof media to ensure perfect color accuracy and highest production reliability. Therefore, it also delivers excellent contract proofing results.

The groundbreaking color management technology implemented in the GMG printer driver provides the best possible repeatability and color match achievable using a digital proofing system. For high-end halftone proofing applications, GMG DotProof and GMG FlexoProof produce genuine, absolutely color-accurate, halftone proofs by directly processing the original imagesetter data.

The new generation of Canon iPF8300S/iPF6300S printers adopts the LUCIA EX ink system, providing a 20% wider color gamut compared with the previous models iPF8000s/6000s and offering exceptional color stability. Furthermore, the printers feature a significantly enhanced production speed, whilst maintaining a very high print quality, allowing the creation of high-end contract proofs in combination with the GMG proofing software. Companies who require a very high proofing speed, for catalogue production for example, will greatly benefit from the GMG/Canon proofing system now available.

The GMG printer driver for the Canon imagePROGRAF iPF 6300s/8300s printers is available immediately.
