GMG OpenColor: Color Management for packaging printing


Packaging printing as an industry is not as standardized as many other printing sectors. This makes achieving a consistent brand appearance a real challenge. GMG OpenColor is using a proprietary spectral calculation model and can precisely predict the interplay between varying processes, substrates, and overprinting.

All colors in one place

With our central data management philosophy and interfaces to common color databases, color profiles are created quickly and effortlessly. Even, conversions in PDF editors are achieved with just a few clicks. Data mangement in this centralized system is safer, easier and more efficient. Because all profiles used for proofing, color conversion or extended color gamut are created from the same source data.

Create profiles without a test chart

GMG OpenColor offers a measurement capability for custom patches. Whereas generally customers would require a specific test chart to create a color profile, GMG OpenColor enables the measurement of full-tone patches from a print control strip, or even solid patches and tint patches on the running printed sheet and to create a profile from the captured spectral data, something no other profiling tool can achieve.

In combination with GMG ColorProof, multicolor proof profiles are dynamically calculated using the colors assigned in the print file. Potential problems such as moirés and incorrect trapping settings can also be made visible in advance using halftone profiles.
