GMG (Tuebingen, Germany), a provider of colour management solutions for packaging and industrial printing, has launched a new solution for HP PageWide Corrugated Presses. GMG’s colour management solutions (most notably GMG ColorServer Multicolor), work seamlessly with the HP One Package Workflow Suite to enable converters to make a smooth transition into digital printing. GMG colour management software helps converters deliver a high degree of colour predictability, whether for print production of complex packaging, or colour proofing. The new corrugated solution, designed in collaboration with HP, includes award-winning GMG colour-management software and proofing media, along with training and consulting to ensure that users maximize the potential of this collaborative technology.
GMG solutions, paired with HP print quality, add proven value to a digital workflow. The new bundled solution offers HP PageWide users optimal and repeatable colour results with a proof-to-press match. It provides cost and time savings on test print runs and implementation of jobs, while increasing press capacity – making HP digital presses more profitable. It streamlines profiling and re-calibration, while reducing make-ready times, automating data conversion, and correctly handling colour expectations.
Assuring that colour matches anywhere, worldwide, is essential., said GMG. Because GMG ColorServer is an important component of the GMG Corrugated Solution for HP, “print providers can be confident that wherever the colour management system is installed, it will deliver the same results from a production file – no matter the facility,” said the companies. “The technology assures maximum accuracy when converting data from conventionally produced jobs created with industry standards, such as FOGRA39 and GRACoL, to the colour space of an HP digital press. Using GMG ColorProof will also ensure reliability across a range of proofing and measuring devices in multiple locations, making it easier to achieve the same print results wherever an HP digital press is located.
