Colour management developer GMG has updated its ColorServer a software, adding improved hot folder-based automation design.
Thomas Kunz, head of GMG product management, says GMG ColorServer’s automatic colour conversion ensures consistent print results across all printing processes and substrates. He says, “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. GMG ColorServer 5.0 even allows an accurate and cost-efficient conversion of spot colours into process colours.”
GMG says the server can operate on any computer in a network with multiple users accessing it in parallel, helping to cover production peaks. The software manages all hotfolders centrally. Kunz says, “GMG ColorServer’s 5.0 dynamic hotfolder concept simplifies your work because multiple hot folders reference one template. If you switch to another printing standard, only the template is changed and all hotfolders adapt accordingly.” It’s even possible to assign incoming data to a printing standard by simply naming the file accordingly.
The company says GMG ColorServer 5.0 can integrate into almost any third-party workflow application. Adding optional SmartProfiler software offers profiling functionality and the paper adaptation tool provides close visual matches to printing conditions or standards adapting the colour output space to the production paper.
