Profiling Expert

31. May 2022 — 01. June 2022

You have already tried a lot, but have not yet reached the goal or generally want to know what other not yet discovered possibilities exist in the field of your own profiling? Then this workshop is just right for you. 

In this workshop, our profiling experts will use practical examples and tasks to show how you can master challenging printing conditions and create and optimize profiles for both proof and separation. We primarily use GMG OpenColor but, if necessary, we also use other profiling tools, such as ProfileEditor. 

Day 1 – Requirements, fingerprint and proof profiles 

  • Evaluation of the profiling task. Relevant parameters and special features 
  • What elements on a test chart can help with profiling? (e.g., For the assessment of min dot, gray balance, etc.....)   
  • Requirements for Color Management: Print consistency and process control 
  • Processing and optimization of the measurement data? Tips and tricks? 
  • Proofprofile – Backgrounds and parameters 
  • Customization and optimization of the profile 
  • Specific properties such as noise and mottling 
  • Prototype Proof Profile 
  • Optional: Substrate Structure Simulation and DotProof 

Day 2 – Separation Profiles and Color Science Deep Dive 

  • Separation – Backgrounds and parameters – Focus on classic separation tasks such as GCR / UCR but also specific ones such as reduced channel count and multicolor  
  • Customization and optimization of the profile 
  • Profiling for digital printing with GMG SmartProfiler 
  • Taking OBA into account 
  • Color Science Deep Dive – Color measurement and assessment (e.g., SCTV, special substrates such as corrugated board, metallic, etc.)  

Bring your own topics and projects: Proof and separation files are developed directly on concrete examples in the workshop.
