GMG ProofControl 2.1 supports latest ISO standards and measurement conditions

GMG's popular proof quality assurance tool is updated to support the latest SWOP and GRACoL profiles, as well as the more defined D50 measurement standard

(PresseBox) ( Tübingen, )
GMG, a leading developer and supplier of high-end color management software solutions, announces the immediate availability of an updated version of its GMG ProofControl quality assurance tool.

GMG ProofControl is an easy-to-use quality control application that ensures digital color proofs meet a predefined standard. Used as part of a color-managed production workflow, ProofControl is an integral component to help print service providers provide the most accurate simulation against a vast range of international output standards such as ISO, ECI, SWOP and 3DAP, or any user-defined quality standard.

When paired with a third-party spectrophotometer (either an external device or the integrated spectrophotometer increasingly found in professional-grade print engines) GMG ProofControl measures the color output, comparing the result to target values stored within its database. If the measurement readings are within a predefined tolerance, a small adhesive label is printed and fixed (typically) on the back of each calibrated proof, providing a quick visual assurance to all project stakeholders that it has been produced to within acceptance standards.

Enhanced measurement and standards support for GMG ProofControl 2.1

GMG ProofControl v2.1 now includes support for the more tightly-defined, D50-based, ISO 13655:2009 standard. Using a measurement device that supports M0 (no UV cut), M1 (No UV cut, D50) and M2 (UV Cut) filter settings, such as the X-Rite EyeOne Pro2, users can select the appropriate measurement parameters when creating either profiles adhering to international standards such as ISO 13655, or to the user's own unique print standard.

GMG ProofControl v2.1 also includes presets for the new SWOP and GRACoL standards SWOP2013C3 (CRPC5), SWOP2013C5, GRACoL2013 coated (CRPC6) and GRACoL2013 uncoated (CRPC3). These new standards profiles are based on ISO/DIS 15339-2 with its specification of a limited number of Characterized Reference Printing Conditions (CRPC), which are device-and-process-agnostic color space references requiring M1 measurement conditions (ISO 13655:2009).

"GMG ProofControl allows print service providers to provide guaranteed and quality-checked output standard for their digital color proof production, regardless of device, standards criteria or print process," says Birgit Plautz, Manager Technical Services, GMG. "Continuing technological advances allow the industry to continue to refine and develop ever more accurate and definable output standards. GMG ProofControl v2.1 embraces these new standards and measurement conditions, allowing our customers to offer best-in-class digital output to the end user, supported with a quality assurance certificate that confirms the expected output tolerances."

GMG ProofControl is available worldwide through GMG's network of authorized dealers.

About the GMG solutions: Based on the 4-D color-transformation engine, the proofing solution GMG ColorProof provides the most accurate way of calibrating digital inkjet proofing devices to produce contract color proofs precisely matched to the printing process. GMG DotProof® enables users to generate contract quality halftone proofs, using the original bitmap data of the output RIP. GMG FlexoProof is specifically tailored to the needs of the packaging industry, simulating any kind of substrate structures and creating contract quality halftone proofs. GMG OpenColor offers precise and predictable spot color reproduction and creates high-quality multicolor profiles based on its unique spectral color management technology. GMG ProofControl guarantees reliable and complete quality control of digital color proofs based on a defined standard. GMG ProofMedia is a range of proofing-specific substrates manufactured to strict tolerances specifically for color critical applications. is an internet platform enabling online proofing services in GMG quality through a worldwide network of remote proofing locations. GMG ColorServer, with automatic hotfolder technology and based on the Adobe® PDF Library, provides fully automatic color conversions for all printing processes - CMYK-to-CMYK, RGB-to-CMYK and RGB-to-RGB. GMG InkOptimizer automatically reduces chromatic colors, thus providing cost savings by reducing unnecessary ink usage, along with better print stability on press. GMG FlowConnect enables the complete integration of the color management solutions GMG ColorServer and GMG InkOptimizer into current workflow systems. The GMG SmartProfiler wizard allows the profiling and calibration of different output devices, such as digital presses or large format systems, easily and quickly. United in this one application, the GMG ProductionSuite offers the entire range of functions required today in a modern wide-format production environment: efficient job preparation, data preflight, color management, identical repetition, lower cost through reduced ink consumption, etc. GMG CoZone is a modular, cloud-based solution for professional media and color management users to interact with clients and suppliers to approve, manage and deliver design work and multimedia files.
