GMG OpenColor 2.2 provides integrated Measurement Data Optimization

An upgrade to GMG OpenColor profiling solution

199

GMG has extended the functionality of its GMG OpenColor profiling solution with measurement data optimization based on spectral calculation. As a result, creating profiles for packaging printing becomes simpler and more reliable. This makes GMG OpenColor an efficient all-in-one solution for creating color-accurate profiles for proofing and separation.

Color management specialist GMG will release an upgrade to its GMG OpenColor profiling solution. Version 2.2 of the multi-award-winning software incorporates automatic, spectral data-based optimization of measurement data.

Color-accurate profiles, thanks to Optimized Measurement Data GMG OpenColor, create color-accurate proofing and separation profiles based on characterization of the planned print production. The user measures test charts or color patches in order to obtain data needed for characterization. This data is subsequently combined with other parameters from the printing process to create a dynamic profile. Naturally, the data obtained from the calibration process has to be optimized. Erroneous test charts, poor substrate textures, and dust can all cause an excessive degree of distortion. Deviations can also arise from the measuring device itself. Previously, users of GMG OpenColor were reliant on third-party software for optimizing the measurement data or had to subsequently correct profiles themselves in a manual process. With Version 2.2, however, life becomes easier. Thanks to the now automatic optimization of the measurement data, users can create a color-accurate profile in only a few steps – while achieving market-leading levels of quality.

Peter Schöffler, product manager of GMG explains, “The optimization is based directly on the measured spectral data, which is then processed via our spectral model.” According to Schöffler, this ensures that the measurement data is preserved and not distorted by conversion into lab. Ultimately, he adds, this leads to highly reliable profiles at market-leading quality levels. Within the software, the user can configure and analyze the level of optimization required.

CxF/X-4 support according ISO 17972-4 makes the new GMG OpenColor version complete, subsequently easing spectral values along with dot gain steps which can be communicated to other parties involved in a print production.

The impact, resilience, and growth of responsible packaging in a wide region are daily chronicled by Packaging South Asia.

A multi-channel B2B publication and digital platform such as Packaging South Asia.is always aware of the prospect of new beginnings and renewal. Its 16-year-old print monthly, based in New Delhi, India has demonstrated its commitment to progress and growth. The Indian and Asian packaging industries have shown resilience in the face of ongoing challenges over the past three years.

As we present our publishing plan for 2023, India’s real GDP growth for the financial year ending 31 March 2023 will reach 6.3%. Packaging industry growth has exceeded GDP growth even when allowing for inflation in the past three years.

The capacity for flexible film manufacturing in India increased by 33% over the past three years. With orders in place, we expect another 33% capacity addition from 2023 to 2025. Capacities in monocartons, corrugation, aseptic liquid packaging, and labels have grown similarly. The numbers are positive for most of the economies in the region – our platform increasingly reaches and influences these.

Even given the disruptions of supply chains, raw material prices, and the challenge of responsible and sustainable packaging, packaging in all its creative forms and purposes has significant headroom to grow in India and Asia. Our context and coverage engulf the entire packaging supply chain – from concept to shelf and further – to waste collection and recycling. We target brand owners, product managers, raw material suppliers, packaging designers and converters, and recyclers.
