GMG Colorserver separation module now available as stand alone version

(PresseBox) ( Tuebingen, )
GMG, supplier of high-end color management and proofing solutions, announced today that its best-selling ColorServer Separation module is now also available as a stand alone version.

In addition to the full version GMG ColorServer Pro we also recognize a demand for the ColorServer Separation module. Until nowthis module was only available as an additional option together with a GMG ColorProof licence. However there are numerous users who don't want to "slow down" their ColorProof by executing separations on the same workstation. We can't expect that these customers buy an additional ColorProof licence just to handle separations. Therefore GMG ColorServer Separation is now offered as a stand alone module and includes the same separation functions in GMG ColorServer Pro

The digital camera boom results in more and more RGB data being supplied. The data very often arrives in an unedited form, meaning that the resolution has to be adjusted (scaled) to the definitive size and the file sharpened in accordance with the changed resolution. The RGB data are subsequently separated into the required CMYK color space (industry standard or in-house standard). The hot folder technology of GMG ColorServer handles this procedure fully automatic, meaning that the RGB data are put into a hot folder, and scaled, sharpened and separated in accordance with the parameters assigned to the hot folder. Worthy of mention in this context is GMG's 3D sharpening function, which sharpens to different degrees depending on the scaling. Lower degrees of scaling are sharpened less than when a higher level of scaling is applied.

The separations generated by GMG are far more harmonious than separations produced using ICC. In other words, less post-editing is required and there are fewer problems when printing (e.g. artefacts in vignettes, color shifts due to inharmonious separation, etc.).

Also included in GMG ColorServer Separation is a PDF-to-PDF conversion function for RGB data. This means that RGB data embedded in PDF files are separated into the required CMYK target color space. If CMYK data are already embedded in the PDF file, they are handled in linear fashion, i.e. left unchanged. The target groups for this product are highly diverse, ranging from " Agencies with their own prepress department, and " Repro houses and prepress businesses, all the way to " Printing shops and digital printers, as well as " Publishing houses and newspaper publishers " Photographers.

"The success of our GMG ColorServer - launched last Autumn - makes us feel very proud", says Robert Weihing, general manager of GMG GmbH & Co. KG. We see a lot of potential for this product; therefore it was obvious for us to react to our customers' requests to offer the separation module of GMG ColorServer as a stand-alone version. We believe that we can gain access to new target groups which only need the separation functionality of GMG ColorServer."
