GMG strengthens its technological leadership withColorProof o5

The Proof Standard technology of GMG and a completely new user interface make proofing easier and more reliable than ever

(PresseBox) ( Tübingen, )
GMG, supplier of high-end color management and proofing solutions, announced today that GMG ColorProof o5 is immediately available through its channel partners. GMG ColorProof o5 is a completely revised version of the company's highly successful and multiple award winning proofing software GMG ColorProof o4. Among industry experts, it is well-known for the provision of best possible quality and color accuracy when producing contract proofs. The brand-new Proof Standard technology implemented in GMG ColorProof o5 ensures maximum production reliability and opens up numerous opportunities to save costs. The completely new user interface has made proofing easier than ever.


75% of the typical tasks can now be directly handled when files are selected for proofing. The Workflow overview provides a graphic representation of the complete system, including hotfolders, associated workflows and printers, so that the user can immediately access parameter settings when necessary and check system utilization. Every job is displayed on the user interface, making it instantly possible to see whether an image is missing or an existing image needs to be rotated, resized or positioned differently on the print form.


The predefined GMG Proof Standards and the calibration sets enhance production reliability and cost savings. The user now only has to select the appropriate Proof Standard. The rest is handled automatically by GMG ColorProof o5. A Proof Standard defines all parameters necessary for correct, color accurate proofs:
- the printing standard to be simulated (ISO, SWOP, in-house standard, etc.),
- the corresponding GMG color profile (MX4) or ICC profile,
- the medium used for proofing,
- the printer used for printing,
- the calibration set used.

The calibration sets include among other things all calibration files (MX3) for the different measuring instruments, necessary printer settings, quality criteria and tolerances for printer calibration.

The software selects automatically the profile and calibration for a certain printer including the appropriate paper. If the parameters do not match the actual settings, the job is automatically stopped for checking. Therefore, possible sources of error, such as incorrect printing settings, calibration files or color profiles, are reduced dramatically. Costs caused by misprints are avoided.


Complete proofing jobs, including all settings and the respective Proof Standard, can be exported and imported. The same results can now be achieved at both the creator's end and the remote site without any major effort.


GMG ColorProof o5 can provide monitor-based viewing of jobs in soft proof quality, with a correctly calibrated and profiled monitor.


If required, GMG ColorProof o5 automatically distributes the proofing jobs among all available printers in order to optimally utilize their capacity and maximize productivity.


Filter rules enable various workflows with different processing steps to be assigned to one hotfolder. The user can put all files in one single hotfolder - GMG ColorProof o5 automatically handles the correct further processing.


Various proofing jobs using different color profiles can now be output on one proofing medium.


The new user interface and the ergonomic improvements of GMG ColorProof o5 are correspondingly implemented in GMG DotProof and GMG FlexoProof. More information about GMG ColorProof o5 is available at

"We are proud that GMG ColorProof has earned a reputation for delivering exceptional color accuracy. And with its outstanding performance, GMG ColorProof o5 will continue to serve its traditional markets of repro and prepress businesses, print shops, agencies and publishing houses. However, with its simple user interface and the introduction of automatically installed Proof Standards, GMG expects increasing interest among print buyers, creative workers and photographers," says Robert Weihing, CEO of GMG GmbH & Co. KG.
