GMG OpenColor Extends Its Connectivity to Colorware USA Inc’s MeasureColor

TUEBINGEN, Germany—Automation and integration characterize the day-to-day in the print production. With GMG‘s color management, print data is now automatically converted and optimally prepared for various printing technologies. The new connection options from GMG OpenColor allow for even more extensive process optimization.

Many experts in the graphic arts industry agree: GMG OpenColor is one of the best technologies that reliably guarantees accurate color reproduction. Thanks to the extended interface, the GMG OpenColor libraries are now available to many other providers, such as the company Colorware USA Inc with MeasureColor—the powerful solution for print quality control—is now on board.

GMG is very pleased with the cooperation. The values that MeasureColor uses as a target for print production now exactly match the proofing color definitions of GMG OpenColor. That ensures the proof is matched with ease—and, as a result, customers’ expectations are met instantly. Makeready and approval are much faster.

Ruud Wentrup, managing director of MeasureColor developer Colorware, summed it up: “Thanks to the new collaboration, it is finally possible to close the gap between prepress and printing press. We are happy about the new possibilities of data exchange. That way, we can avoid many mistakes, produce less waste and obtain more precise colors. Trial-and-error is finally history and the printing process is accelerated sustainably.”

“The main requirements of our customers are automation and, of course, complete control over print quality,” added Peter Schöffler, product manager at GMG. “Both expectations are met with the new addition. As the library for spectral color information, GMG OpenColor is the central hub of automated color management in prepress. In connection with MeasureColor, results match across the board: increased productivity and extended print capacity thanks to shorter makeready times.”

Schöffler sees the collaboration with Colorware as a valuable contribution to an innovative network surrounding GMG’s technologies.
