New GMG DotProof XG supports wide-gamut inkjet printers

The new GMG DotProof XG module now enables users to exploit the advantages of the Epson Stylus Pro x900 and HP Designjet Z3200 multicolor printer series with expanded color gamut

GMG, supplier of high-end color management and proofing solutions, introduces the new GMG DotProof XG (Extended Gamut) module, an option for the well-known GMG DotProof and GMG FlexoProof digital proofing solutions. GMG DotProof XG enables users to make the most of the expanded color gamut of Epson Stylus Pro x900 and HP Designjet Z3200 printers, allowing far more spot colors to be simulated in a halftone proof. Until now, an extended gamut could only be produced using expensive and slow thermal halftone proofing systems. GMG DotProof XG will be available within the next 30 days.

In the past, some expanded color spaces based on highly pigmented inks or spot colors could not be proofed on conventional inkjet proofing devices, because their gamut were too limited. Epson Stylus Pro x900 and HP Designjet Z3200 printers work with additional inks to provide a wider gamut. The new GMG DotProof XG module is able to take advantage of this wider gamut and create halftone proofs in GMG quality. This is particularly important for the simulation of color spaces based on highly pigmented inks, multicolor processes or the simulation of spot colors. For example, it enables packaging companies or packaging-related prepress businesses to reduce the number of press proofs by replacing them by GMG halftone proofs.

In platesetting, parameters like screen, overprinting and trapping settings, as well as correction curves, have a significant influence on the subsequent printed result. Should problems occur at this point, such as an unfavorable screen angle, incorrect trapping or overprinting settings, and also interpretation errors, this can only be detected at an early stage by producing a halftone proof created with the original imagesetter data. A halftone proof is also indispensable for printing processes where coarse screening, has a major influence on visual impression. GMG DotProof and GMG FlexoProof allow direct processing of 1-bit imagesetter data, so that they can be inexpensively proofed on inkjet printers, and errors detected before platesetting or the start of a press run.

"Unlike many competitive products, GMG DotProof and GMG FlexoProof produce color-accurate halftone proofs of contract-proof quality according to GMG's quality standards. The new GMG DotProof XG module now also enables our customers to fully benefit from all the advantages of halftone proofing in combination with the Epson Stylus Pro x900 and HP Z3200 printer series in a very quick and economical way," says Paul Willems, CEO of GMG GmbH & Co. KG.
