GMG Americas (Booth 644) is introducing GMG ColorProof and GMG FlexoProof, two proofing software products that allow printers to create color-accurate proofs directly on the substrate they will be printed on. For commercial printers, almost true ‘press proofs’ can be printed on the final stock, useful for particularly fine, high end uncoated papers. For converters, color accurate prototypes with exact screening and simulated misregistration can be built on the correct substrate.
GMG is also featuring its direct driver for the Roland VersaUV LEC-330, an inkjet printer that prints on virtually any substrate with two extra units (varnishes or white). Thus, GMG ColorProof or GMG FlexoProof can print directly to the printer rather than sending a file to the printer’s RIP. GMG ColorProof provide an accurate way of calibrating digital inkjet proofing engines to produce digital contract color proofs precisely matched to the printing process. For packaging, GMG FlexoProof is specifically designed for digital proofing of flexographic jobs. FlexoProof includes GMG SpotColor editor, unlimited spot color databases, and multiple Pantone Libraries. FlexoProof and DotProof generate contract-quality halftone proofs from the same one-bit data used by film or platesetter RIPs. These features allow highly accurate proofing of jobs as they will appear under actual printing conditions.
