GMG (Tuebingen, Germany), a leading worldwide developer and provider of colour-management software solutions, has announced that Mark Andy’s Digital Press Division will provide worldwide distribution for the complete GMG product range of colour-management and proofing software and media. While the entire GMG portfolio is available (and GMG solutions and media are already available through the Mark Andy Print Products Division), the OEM’s Digital Press Division focus will be to specifically offer GMG ColorServer and SmartProfiler to the installed base of Mark Andy Digital Pro and Digital One Digital Presses. GMG ColorProof and GMG ProofMedia will also be available to those who want to create proofs from their digital presses.
Different printing conditions, substrates or printing standards around the world can make it difficult to ensure consistent spot colours and brand image. GMG ColorServer automatically converts files into industry-standard or custom output colour spaces, assuring that a file will print accurately and consistently, no matter where the press is. To accompany GMG ColorServer, GMG SmartProfiler lets users easily calibrate digital presses, eliminating the “guesswork” when it comes to profiling presses for complex print jobs.
“The genesis of this global relationship began when we heard that a customer served by our U.K. office was able to match a well-known brand’s spot colour using our CMYK toner system and GMG ColorServer. They were able to replicate the colour within a 1.6 ∆E, easily meeting the brand’s requirements,” said Justin Green, Product Manager at Mark Andy Digital. “We look forward to offering GMG solutions to help our customers grow their businesses and offerings to their customers.”
“We are thrilled to work with Mark Andy to provide its digital press users with better spot-colour matching,” added Darrian Young, Global Partnership Manager at GMG Color. “Beyond their strong user base of flexo press customers, they’ve built a solid foundation of digital press users. We believe we can provide them with better consistency on press, no matter when a job is printed, and a better match between different devices on the manufacturing floor.”
