GMG Named HP Graphics Solutions Gold Partner
With GMG ColorServer and GMG SmartProfiler GMG offers endtoend color management for the HP Scitex largeformat printers and HP Indigo digital presses to improve color accuracy and consistency in daily production dramatically. Now, it is possible for GMG and HP customers to achieve in an automated process a visual match with offset printing, as an ISO Coated V2 appearance can be produced with their digital or largeformat devices.
The wizarddriven GMG SmartProfiler and a corresponding measuring device enable users to quickly create individual profiles for the great variety of different substrates used for wideformat applications. Also the regular calibration of a wide range of largeformat printers can be done easily with the help of GMG SmartProfiler.
Based on GMG's DeviceLink technology, the GMG ColorServer automatically converts any kind of colors, including spot colors, to the color spaces of the various output devices.
"We are excited about the expansion of our longlasting relationship with HP in the field of highend proofing with printers of the HP Zseries, which was the first result of our close technological cooperation", says Paul Willems, CEO of GMG GmbH & Co. KG. "The GMG ColorServer/SmartProfiler color management solution creates additional value to our customers, putting service providers in a position to offer print products with an identical color appearance, regardless of which printing process, press and substrate used. The HP Gold partner status clearly demonstrates the high quality standards the GMG brand stands for and will certainly help to enhance the visibility of our joint solutions and their benefits for printing companies", adds Willems.
