GMG Updates Color Management Tool

TUEBINGEN, GERMANY | GMG, developer of color management solutions, reports it has made prepress work more efficient with the new ColorServer 5.0, featuring an improved hotfolder-based automation designed for maximum productivity and process safety.

Company says the ColorServer’s automatic color conversion ensures consistent print results across all printing processes and substrates, whether industry or in-house standards. “Retouching multiple files manually can be complex, and does not guarantee repeatable results,” says Thomas Kunz, head of GMG product management. “With the ColorServer 5.0 and the GMG MX (https://www.gmgcolor.com/products/colorplugin/) technology, press-ready files can be created automatically in reproducible quality. The ColorServer 5.0 even allows an accurate and cost-efficient conversion of spot colors into process colors.”

New client-server architecture reportedly allows the server to operate on any computer in a network, with multiple users accessing it in parallel. As the processing load is automatically distributed to the connected computers, production peaks are covered and parallel file processing is possible.

As all hotfolders are managed centrally, any client can convert files without expert knowledge, says Kunz. “The ColorServer’s 5.0 dynamic hotfolder concept simplifies work because multiple hotfolders reference one template. If user switches to another printing standard, only the template is changed and all hotfolders adapt accordingly.”

To increase productivity and output quality of whole prepress setups, the ColorServer 5.0 can be integrated in almost any third-party workflow application. The optional, fully integrated SmartProfiler extends ColorServer 5.0 with profiling functionality. The Paper Adaptation Tool guarantees close visual matches to printing conditions or standards adapting the color output space to the production paper.
