The new GMG ColorServer 5.0 has improved automation features, including hotfolders handling, and automatic colour conversion for consistent print results across various printing processes and substrates.
“Retouching multiple files manually can be complex, and does not guarantee repeatable results. With GMG ColorServer 5.0 and the GMG MX technology, press-ready files can be created automatically in reproducible quality," said Thomas Kunz, head of GMG product management. GMG ColorServer 5.0 also allows conversion of spot colors into process colors.
Kunz added: “GMG ColorServer's 5.0 dynamic hotfolder concept simplifies your work because multiple hotfolders reference one template. If you switch to another printing standard, only the template is changed and all hotfolders adapt accordingly." It's possible to assign incoming data to a printing standard by naming the file accordingly.
Thanks to new client-server architecture, the server can operate on any computer in a network with multiple users accessing it in parallel. SmartProfiler extends GMG ColorServer 5.0 with profiling functionality, and a Paper Adaptation Tool is said to guarantee close visual matches to printing conditions or standards adapting the colour output space to the production paper.
