TÜBINGEN, GERMANY | GMG, a developer and supplier of color management software solutions, announces GMG CoZone, a comprehensive web-based platform that integrates the cloud and project collaboration with high quality color management tool sets. The first GMG CoZone module to be released is CoZone Collaborate.
CoZone Collaborate allows project participants to manage, review, proof, and approve graphic arts content (and multimedia content by the end of 2013) within an online Amazon Cloud Service hosted soft-proofing environment. While CoZone Collaborate features a powerful soft-proofing engine, future CoZone modules will allow seamless connection to GMG-calibrated hard-copy output devices, delivering an end-to-end color-accurate workflow.
The system is completely cloud-based, meaning there is no software or hardware to install and manage, and users do not require anything more than a web browser. Company reports it has invested heavily in cloud-based services so it can offer a robust, enterprise-level cloud platform accessible worldwide, day or night, with a guaranteed service level uptime of 99.95%. CoZone offers no restriction of the number of users, file sizes, or even storage, company says, and it allows even inexperienced users to collaborate, review, proof, and approve content.
“Adopting a more distributed and collaborative methodology that exploits the clear benefits of the cloud when producing content means easier, faster and more streamlined output, which is good for the industry as a whole,” says Marcus Wright, CoZone product manager at GMG.
