GMG centralized color management for wide format printing: Accurate color for shops with several output devices

Wherever a color goes, it stays that color. Digital and large format printers increasingly expect high color accuracy, repeatability, and colors that match those of print media produced by classic printing processes, such as offset or gravure printing. The same applies to companies that operate several output devices of an identical or similar type calibrated to industry or in-house standards. Centralized color management with GMG ColorServer in conjunction with GMG SmartProfiler is a user-friendly solution for creating color profiles and printer calibrations. GMG SmartProfiler enables any user to easily calibrate, recalibrate and profile a wide variety of output devices. Thus, consistent color results are easily achieved across all printing devices.

GMG has applied this approach for users of HP Scitex printers. HP Scitex large-format printers cover a highly diverse range of applications and media. On display at the HP booth, the GMG ColorServer Suite for HP Scitex Printers helps operations that use multiple, similar or identical HP Scitex printers, and work under mixed-environment conditions. This customized software bundle includes GMG ColorServer/SmartProfiler and a set of preconfigured hot folders and ready-to-use color profiles The GMG ColorServer Suite for HP Scitex Printers optimizes the color results and the productivity of the output devices.

“GMG has offered solutions for digital and wide format printers for quite a while. By implementing centralized color management, color is consistent whether printed on wide format and other digital printers, screen printers, or traditional presses. This has become increasingly important as print buyers have become much more aware and adamant about matching corporate and product colors,” comments Jim Summers, GMG Americas President. “Print providers are getting more sophisticated, raising their demands for color quality and consistency. The GMG Wide Format Solution, along with GMG color management technology, offers a complete, high quality workflow package to this market. Our recent product development reinforces GMG’s claim that ‘Wherever a color goes it stays that color’.
