GMG OpenColor is the first profiling software to accurately predict the overprinting behavior and color interplay with only a minimum of measurement data and test charts required. This is possible by combining spectral measurements with a patented prediction engine that applies mathematical models of printing processes to predict what will happen on the press. The centralized data management and the simple user interface make it easy for beginner and expert alike to create high-quality profiles.
With GMG ColorProof, you can easily create contract proofs on inkjet proofers. GMG ColorServer enables you to automate the separation and to calibrate your digital press. Separation profiles created in GMG OpenColor can also be used in the third party application PACKZ. GMG ColorPlugin extends the usage to Adobe Photoshop.

- Export target values from your GMG OpenColor projects
- Check spot color separation values upfront
- Monitor all profile calculations currently in progress
Keeping colors consistent throughout the entire creation and printing process is always a challenge for everyone involved, especially when spot colors are used in the design. Particularly in Expanded Color Gamut (ECG) or digital printing, an accurate separation of the print data is important. GMG OpenColor calculates the color definition that will provide the best match for each printing condition and with GMG OpenColor RemoteClient, all persons involved in the process can easily access that information.
All employees involved in the print job order management process can see exactly which inks are required to reproduce a specific spot color. Color matches and out-of-gamut colors, which cannot be accurately reproduced in the target printing process, can easily be checked and communicated upfront. Prepress operators can simply transfer percentage values from the Separation Rules defined in the project to their artwork editor, and printers can use exported target values of a project to use them in their press room tools for color control.

You can click Proceed to Separation to skip the Proofing Condition and Finalize steps and proceed directly with the separation.
Users with an OpenColor Separation Only license benefit most from this feature. In this case, the Proof tabbed page has been renamed to Press Condition. The Proofing Condition and Finalize steps will not be visible.

GMG OpenColor 2.4 offers the following preinstalled output conditions for use with JetComp films:
You can use each output condition for ContoneProof as well as DotProof. Please follow the link for more information on the supported proofing conditions.
To allow the use of virtually any substrate, GMG ColorProof offers you a Calibration Creation Wizard. With this wizard, you will be able to create a custom calibration set and a corresponding output condition for GMG OpenColor fast and easy.
Note: If you already used the Epson SureColor SC-S80600 before this version, please note the following: The new proofing conditions are compatible with the ones provided by the GMG team for import before this release. During the upgrade, the imported proofing conditions will be replaced with the new ones automatically. Already calculated proof profiles will not be invalidated by this procedure. You can use your existing projects and proof profiles as before. You will not be able to import the old proofing conditions anymore after the installation. Custom proofing conditions (created by the Calibration Creation Wizard) will be left unchanged.
Please note that using the Epson SureColor SC-S80600 requires the following applications and additional licenses:
- GMG ColorProof 5.10 or higher with Epson SureColor SC-S80600 license and GMG OpenColor Output license
- GMG OpenColor 2.1.5 or higher with OpenColor 2.1 Profiler Standard or Plus license
- GMG OpenColor preset (Offset, Flexo, or Gravure)
- GMG OpenColor Profiling for Epson SureColor SC-S80600 license

Based on feedback from our customers, new spot color libraries including HKS K and HKS N will have the Target Mode set to Absolute, so that printed solids will match the swatch book, regardless of the print medium. For more information on the Target Mode, please follow the link: Correcting the Target Color and the Tone Value Curve
HKS K and HKS N spot color libraries include not only solids, but tints as well. The target tone value gradation of the colors has been set to a linear SCTV curve. You can see the tone value gradation when opening a duplicate of the spot color library and click the Color Corrections button on the Tools & Actions panel.
You can define the Total Area Coverage and the overprint behavior under Screening and Usage in the Ink Settings dialog box in the project.
When calculating separation rules, the sum of the percentage values of all output colors will not exceed the Total Area Coverage.
Also, colors set to the same Screening Type will overprint only with solids. For example, if Cyan and Orange are set to Configuration 2, Cyan will only print with solid Orange and vice versa. This is indicated by the filled square icon in the Ink Settings. If colors are manually set to No Overprint, they will not overprint at all in the separation rules.
Note: Existing separation rules will not be updated when the Total Area Coverage or overprint behavior in the Ink Settings are changed. There will be no information on inconsistencies. You will need to update separation rules manually by clicking the Reset Calculation button in the Edit Separation Rules dialog box.
