GMG updates ColorProof

GMG has updated its ColorProof colour management and proofing solution to v5.5. GMG says that it has rewritten the software to improve processing speed, cutting in half the time used create a new job from selecting the file until it’s ready to print.
ColorProof also gains an automatic alert via multiple emails, to warn an operator to load paper, calibrate a printer, or fix a job error. There’s a new Manual Job Manager that offers a toolbar for the most common commands. Job status is clearly indicated with a green, orange or red color, giving the operator instant feedback. A new Database View now shows color-related information such as proof standards and spot colors, while a separate view provides configuration settings.
Michael Farkas, Director Business Unit Graphic Arts at GMG, says: “Customers working with packaging will benefit from the enhanced handling of white ink and transparent areas when proofing on foil, along with enhanced integration with GMG OpenColor. And, GMG DotProof users will find a much sharper dot along with GMG ColorProof’s accurate colour.”
There’s also a new Remote Poofing Edition, essentially a cut down version for viewing print-ready jobs, which costs 20% less than the regular ColorProof.
