GMG has announced that GMG SmartProfiler, a color profiling solution, is now shipping.
GMG SmartProfiler is a wizard that allows users to create high quality GMG ColorServer profiles without considerable knowledge of color management.
"We have been using GMG ColorServer for our wide-format industrial printing applications for a while. The color results are great and we achieve excellent matches between different machines and media. However, the process requires good color skill and knowledge. GMG's new SmartProfiler makes the process much easier and faster, allowing us to support our entire production process. GMG listened to our needs and has provided a great upgrade to an already excellent product," said Bob Boileau, general manager of Screen Print Dow.
The combination of GMG SmartProfiler and GMG ColorSever opens new opportunities for digital and large format printers to enhance the color they provide to new levels of quality and color consistency. In doing so, the GMG products validate the high investments in digital and large format printers. The higher print quality increases the customer satisfaction and, ultimately, loyalty.
Users, especially in the rapidly growing digital and large-format printing sectors, increasingly expect exceptional color accuracy, repeatability and colors that match those of print media produced by classic printing processes, such as offset or gravure printing.
With centrally controlled color management, using GMG SmartProfiler and GMG ColorServer, companies can greatly increase productivity, production reliability and, in particular, the color quality of their products. Due to identically matched color printed output, flexibility in hybrid production environments is enhanced, because the output system used for printing can be selected at the last minute.
"X-Rite and GMG have shared a mutual commitment to accurate and consistent color reproduction in pre-press, digital and large format workflows for years. X-Rite's i1 solutions have long been the de-facto standard across the industry when it comes to consistent, high-quality color management, offering extremely fast and highly accurate measurement, precise patch recognition and unmatched versatility. When combined with GMG's profiling tools, X-Rite's i1 solutions offer customers unprecedented levels of productivity, reliability and flexibility, and we are delighted to further expand our long term and fruitful partnership, with our instruments' seamless support for GMG's new SmartProfiler solution," said Sonia Megert, vice president of inbound marketing, X-Rite.
The high degree of automation in GMG's color management will help to cut costs, while increasing productivity and achieving consistent colors.
