The new GMG ColorServer 5.2

Different printing conditions, various substrates, productions on a global scale, and the use of spot colors. A wide range of parameters provides for a variety of tasks when preparing print data. GMG‘s experience and research have shown us that we can best support these different challenges with three tailor-made solutions: ColorServer Conventional, ColorServer Digital, and ColorServer Multicolor.

ColorServer thus specifically addresses different market segments, such as conventional printing or CMYK digital printing. With the multicolor version, we address customers who produce on a cross-process basis and use spot colors – primarily in the packaging market.

All three solutions contain the award-winning profiling technology GMG OpenColor, which is particularly easy and intuitive to use either directly or via GMG SmartProfiler. And customers from the offset sector can be pleased that GMG InkOptimizer is now also integrated into the solution.

GMG ColorServer Multicolor

Spot colors are used particularly frequently in packaging printing. But how do you accurately reproduce spot colors in digital printing? And how can jobs be flexibly exchanged between conventional- and digital print? Fundamental questions like these make the implementation of digital printing systems so demanding. ColorServer Multicolor is the answer to all of these questions. It has never been easier to reliably prepare accurate print data for virtually every printing process and every ink set, ensuring consistent results, and reducing costs at the same time.

GMG ColorServer Digital

Digital CMYK printing is used in many market segments: large format printing, advertising, or even packaging printing. Short print runs or personalization are only two strengths of digital print. Quality requirements of customers are in most cases summed up as follows: Achieving the right color is a must – even for urgent projects or repeat orders. If you want consistent results in digital printing and you have to reproduce brand colors in CMYK, GMG ColorServer Digital is the perfect solution.

GMG ColorServer Conventional

GMG ColorServer Conventional offers powerful print data conversions and enables exact profiling for conventional printing processes. PDFs can be converted into any industry-standard such as PSO or GRACoL. The integration of GMG OpenColor enables the seamless conversion of user-defined standards and spot colors into CMYK. ColorServer Conventional supports offset-, flexo- and gravure printing. The solution is optimized for both commercial- and packaging printing.

The Covid-19 pandemic led to the country-wide lockdown on 25 March 2020. It will be two years tomorrow as I write this. What have we learned in this time? Maybe the meaning of resilience since small companies like us have had to rely on our resources and the forbearance of our employees as we have struggled to produce our trade platforms.

The print and packaging industries have been fortunate, although the commercial printing industry is still to recover. We have learned more about the digital transformation that affects commercial printing and packaging. Ultimately digital will help print grow in a country where we are still far behind in our paper and print consumption and where digital is a leapfrog technology that will only increase the demand for print in the foreseeable future.

Web analytics show that we now have readership in North America and Europe amongst the 90 countries where our five platforms reach. Our traffic which more than doubled in 2020, has at times gone up by another 50% in 2021. And advertising which had fallen to pieces in 2020 and 2021, has started its return since January 2022.

As the economy approaches real growth with unevenness and shortages a given, we are looking forward to the PrintPack India exhibition in Greater Noida. We are again appointed to produce the Show Daily on all five days of the show from 26 to 30 May 2022.

It is the right time to support our high-impact reporting and authoritative and technical information with some of the best correspondents in the industry. Readers can power Packaging South Asia’s balanced industry journalism and help sustain us by subscribing.
