Preflighting and PDF file editing: PrintFactory GMG Edition has a unique, built-in preflight engine. Each file opened is checked against a set of job specific parameters allowing rapid identification of potential production problems. Should any mistake be detected, PrintFactory GMG Edition allows operators to make last-minute edits or corrections to virtually any object element in the job within the PDF file. Time consuming RIPing of files is not required to inspect output.
Color management: PrintFactory GMG Edition uniquely includes GMG ColorServer technology with its industry-leading MX4 color management technology, assuring maximum efficiency and color consistency for any kind of wide format production. Colors match between different substrates, printers and work locations.
With GMG SmartProfiler, creation of custom color profiles and printer calibrations is supported with easy-to-use wizards producing high-quality results quickly and dependably.
Job preparation system: A dedicated wide format job preparation system makes it possible to easily add tiling set-ups, folds, seams and tunnels, define die cut lines and create tiles and grommets. White ink and varnish can be added either on or behind an object or the entire job. Softproofing based on the same interpreter as the RIP offers an accurate representation of the job on screen.
Ink Savings: The GMG ColorServer engine can easily reduce waste of expensive production media and ink. The EcoSave option can significantly reduce ink usage -- up to 20% -- while maintaining or improving color and print quality.
Automation: The modular architecture of PrintFactory GMG Edition is built for growth, making it easy to add job preparation, processing or printing capacity. For recurring jobs, standard and customized templates make it possible to prepare repeat jobs quickly and automatically, while eliminating errors.
PrintFactory GMG Edition separates file preparation from production, allowing multiple, parallel processes to increase throughput. Workstations can operate with either Macs or PCs, increasing operator flexibility within the prepress department.
