Support of new PSR V2 standards for M1 measuring condition
Recently, the ECI has updated the PSR standard to support the M1 measuring condition. The new version of GMG OpenColor provides new characterizations.
New proofing conditions for Epson SC-Px000, Epson SC-Px500, HP Z3200
New proofing conditions allow the use of more GMG Calibration Sets in GMG ColorProof. This version supports new print modes for Epson SC-Px000 and Epson SC-Px500, as well as GMG ProofPaper matte 140 for HP Designjet Z3200.

Full support of digital printing processes
In addition to conventional printing technologies such as Gravure, Offset, and Flexo, GMG OpenColor does now fully support toner-based and inkjet digital printing technologies. Digital printers can now benefit from the award winning GMG OpenColor to calculate proof profiles and separation profiles.
Support of X-Rite i1Pro 3 and i1iO Generation 3 Table
GMG OpenColor now fully supports the new measuring device from X-Rite.
Access your project data over the browser using GMG OpenColor RemoteClient
With the new GMG OpenColor RemoteClient, you can access GMG OpenColor projects from any computer in your local network.
  • Connect from any browser in your network
  • Export target values from your GMG OpenColor projects
  • Check spot color separation values upfront
  • Monitor all profile calculations currently in progress
Increased efficiency and ease of use for "separation only" projects
Up to now, you were required to calculate a proof profile even when using GMG OpenColor only for separation and not for proofing. From 2.4 on, you can skip this step and proceed directly with the separation after specifying the Printing Process, Media, and Inks.
Prototype Proofing with Epson SureColor SC-S80600
To close the gap between traditional proofing and prototype creation, Epson SureColor SC-S80600 driven by GMG ColorProof and GMG OpenColor is used to create color accurate and reproducible prints on substrates close to production material.
Support of FOGRA offset print standards for FM screening
FOGRA offset characterizations for FM screening have been added to the database. This version now includes all FOGRA offset characterizations.
Support of Japan Color 2011 Coated
Characterization data for Japan Color 2011 Coated has been added to the database. You can now create custom separation profiles for this color space in GMG OpenColor and use it in GMG ColorServer. Of course, you can also create proof profiles for the output intent Japan Color 2011 Coated.
Support of Idealliance ECG test charts CMYKOGV for X-Rite i1Sis and i1Pro2
The new two test charts are based on the Expanded Color Gamut (ECG) characterization chart for use in characterizing and calibrating multicolor print processes. It was created by a subcommittee within the Idealliance Print Properties and Colorimetric Council as a part of the Idealliance Global ECG project.
New HKS spot color libraries
HKS K and HKS N spot color libraries have been added to the database. You can now create custom separation rules from the libraries in GMG OpenColor and use them in GMG ColorServer. Of course, you can also use the spot colors in proof profiles.
TAC and overprint behavior for separation rules
When calculating separation rules, the ink limit and the overprint behavior defined in the project are now taken into account. This prevents overinking and moiré effects in the print production.
Support of Windows Server 2019
You can now update your server to the latest version of the server operating system by Microsoft. GMG OpenColor 2.4 was thoroughly tested on this operating system and officially supports it. Please follow the link for more information: System Requirements
