Less is more: Mini Strip instead of Mega Test Print
As an intelligent multichannel profiler, GMG OpenColor doesn’t need large-scale test charts. A single, compact Mini Strip on the press sheet is enough to capture all data for an exact match – whether you are printing CMYK, spot colors, or both.
Accurate spot color simulation
GMG OpenColor calculates proof or separation profiles based on the spectral color information of the printing inks and the print specific process parameters.
From proof to print is very simple in GMG OpenColor
A few clicks will generate a matching separation profile for use in GMG ColorPlugin in Adobe Photoshop or in our color conversion solution GMG ColorServer.
Precise prediction of overprinting effects
The combination of GMG OpenColor and GMG ColorProof ensures highly accurate proofing with spot colors, bridging the gap between contract proof and what actually happens on press.
From proof to perfect separation of your print data
With GMG OpenColor, you cannot only create incredibly precise proof profiles, but also leverage your centrally stored data for calculating best quality separation profiles. For example, to adapt FOGRA39 data to your specific printing condition and substrate. The resulting quality and precision is astonishing, even for experienced experts, describing GMG OpenColor as “the most incredible tool of the last 20 years”.
The separation profiles created in OpenColor can be applied in GMG ColorServer, our color conversion solution, so that neutral gray areas, harmonious gradients, and in fact all of the benefits of the MX DeviceLink technology can easily be exploited for any printing process, color combination, and substrate. GMG ColorPlugin, the ingenious plugin for Adobe Photoshop, provides another means of leveraging GMG OpenColor separation profiles, e.g. by replacing CMYK channels with spot color channels via a direct connection to GMG OpenColor.
