Profiling Expert

8 - 9 October 2024 | 20 - 21 May 2025 | 11 - 12 November 2025

You have already tried a few things, but have not yet reached your goal or generally want to know what other undiscovered possibilities exist in the area of profile creation? Then this workshop is exactly the right one for you.

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

Day 1 – Requirements, fingerprint and proof profiles 

  • Evaluation of the profiling task. Relevant parameters and specifics 
  • What elements on a test chart can help with profiling? (e.g., For the assessment of min dot, gray balance, etc.....)   
  • Prerequisites for color management: print consistency and process control 
  • Processing and optimization of the measurement data? 
  • Proof profiles – backgrounds and parameters 
  • Customization and optimization of the profile 
  • Specific properties such as noise and mottling 
  • Prototype Proofing 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 like reduced channel count and multicolor  
  • Customization and optimization of the profile 
  • Profiling for digital printing with GMG SmartProfiler 
  • Consideration of OBA
  • Color Science Deep Dive – color measurement and evaluation (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.
