About the GMG family of products: GMG ColorProof, a color management software system, provides the most accurate way of calibrating digital inkjet proofing engines to produce digital contract color proofs, precisely matched to the printing press.

They are manufactured to high tolerances for color critical applications, available in a range of sizes.
