GMG OpenColor: color management for packaging printing

Packaging printing as an industry is not as standardized as many other printing sectors. This makes achieving consistent brand appearance a real challenge. GMG OpenColor is using a proprietary spectral calculation model and can precisely predict the interplay between varying processes, substrates, and overprinting.

GMG ColorBook: Digitally-printed PANTONE® Color simulations

How can we simulate PANTONE® Colors and custom brand colors with a fixed set of four to seven inks? With this new solution, GMG provides a sales tool for printers who want to physically demonstrate their color competence in digital printing before an order is placed. In addition, GMG ColorBook establishes a building block for reliable color communication.

Precise simulations with spectral data

Our patented conversion technology enables color-accurate simulation – even without test charts. In addition to spectral color data, printing process, substrates and even ink sequence are taken into account. If a parameter changes, a profile can be quickly calculated without the need to run a new proof.

All colors in one place

With our central data management philosophy and interfaces to common color databases, color profiles are created quickly and effortlessly. Even, conversions in PDF editors are achieved with just a few clicks. Data mangement in this centralized system is safer, easier and more efficient. Because all profiles used for proofing, color conversion or extended color gamut are created from the same source data.

Continous or halftone proof?

In combination with GMG ColorProof, multicolor proof profiles are dynamically calculated using the colors assigned in the print file. Potential problems such as moirés and incorrect trapping settings can also be made visible in advance using halftone profiles.

One foundation for proof and color separation

GMG OpenColor creates proof profiles as well as separation profiles. These profiles transfer effortlessly to GMG ColorServer and GMG ColorPlugin, allowing the use of the most sophisticated color transformation tools to work seamlessly with Adobe Photoshop. Extended gamut printing projects and the replacement of CMYK channels with specials in Photoshop are now quick and simple. GMG OpenColor delivers the flexibility you wish for and the reliability you need.
