Wherever a color goes, it stays that color. Digital and large-format printers are increasingly expecting 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.
The answer in such cases is centralized color management with GMG ColorServer in conjunction with GMG SmartProfiler—a user-friendly solution for creating GMG ColorServer profiles and printer calibrations—which will be demonstrated in booth 227.
GMG SmartProfiler is a wizard based profiling application enabling any user, even those without expert color knowledge, to very easily calibrate, recalibrate and profile a wide variety of output devices without needing any in-depth knowledge of color management. New tools analyze the condition of the printer as a first step. This allows customers to choose the optimum profiling strategy and to detect if the printer might need maintenance before profiling starts.
The data is converted to the corresponding output color space using GMG ColorServer. This procedure is performed automatically using the Adobe based PDF to PDF technology. Consistent color results are easily achieved across all of the printing devices.
