CoZone.Collaborate lets users track project status and efficiently manage the production processes. GMG CoZone will continuously evolve to a complete end-to-end solution. The next steps are CoZone.Manage to apply color management to files in the CoZone cloud and CoZone.Deliver the integration to the cloud of local GMG ColorProof systems. Deliver will enable CoZone customers to create and track hard proofs at practically the click of a button anywhere on the world to verify content and color accuracy on GMG-quality hard proofs, providing a true quality reference at the end of the complete process.
Providing accurate color throughout Labelexpo
At Labelexpo, GMG will be partnering with a number of companies, with software solutions throughout the floor. Sharing the GMG booth is Beyond Manufacturing, featuring a contract-quality, double-sided proofing on press substrates with varnish, die cutting and embossing — all powered by GMG color technology. At Roland booth 6412 will be a new, complete label proofing and prototyping system—including diecutting—featuring a Roland BN-20 printer powered by GMG ProductionSuite, for label, tag and decal proofs and prototypes on white, clear and foil substrates. The GMG-Roland mini label system includes a GMG ProductionSuite package with a RIP, PDF editor, Roland BN-20 driver, step and repeat to place as many labels on the substrate as possible, cutting integration, GMG InkOptimization to conserve ink, and GMG SmartProfiler to easily create profiles to match brand colors. The color gamut and resolution of the Roland printer is also powered by GMG ProductionSuite software. Narrow Web flexo printers can use this system to produce color accurate prototype labels that are virtually identical to the final flexo products.
Visitors will also be able to experience GMG solutions at the Pitman (5403), Hewlett-Packard Company (3223), Anderson & Vreeland, Inc. (929), and Nazdar (455) booths, working with diverse output devices and production environments.
“GMG is making the most of its first official visit to Labelexpo. While we have been present at Labelexpo and have always offered solutions for packaging—most notably FlexoProof—this year we have developed solutions that have been widely accepted by tag and label printers,” reports Joe Varone, GMG Americas Vice President of Sales. “As the trend to digital printing becomes even more significant, we believe it is paramount to offer consistent color between a broad range of print processes, to satisfy brand owners. For that reason, GMG believes that GMG OpenColor and GMG CoZone will be well received.”
