GMG ColorServer 5.4 is now available

New version delivers efficiency in digital packaging printing

GMG ColorServer 5.4 is a powerful update that particularly excels in digital printing.

GMG, a developer of high-end color management solutions, has released the GMG ColorServer 5.4, a powerful update that particularly excels in digital printing. Productivity takes top priority in this release of the well-known color management solution. 

Jens Bloeck, Product manager at GMG, understands the high expectations of GMG users. He emphasizes, “We are constantly in close communication with our users. Therefore, we know that efficiency and productivity are more important than ever. With GMG ColorServer 5.4, our customers can sustainably optimize their processes. We have integrated a range of new features that all contribute to increased profitability.”

The latest version of GMG ColorServer offers innovative features to increase productivity and streamline workflows. Improved channel mapping rules now support wildcards for spot colors, automatically processing unidentified channels according to preset criteria, reducing time-consuming manual intervention.

GMG ColorServer provides the flexibility required for modern workflows, allowing for easy adjustment of job priorities, for example, due to a change in production planning. This further streamlines the production process.

Significant improvements to the GMG SmartProfiler module also lead to increased efficiency and higher quality. With the new automatic smoothing of measurement data, inconsistencies in measurement data are corrected, resulting in better profiles and higher print quality. In addition, the optimized total area coverage (TAC) provides better color matching. For precise processing of PDF files with transparencies or overprinting objects, GMG SmartProfiler now offers a flattening option for hot folder creation, eliminating the need for additional manual intervention.

The ‘auto rasterize’ feature also helps to avoid manual intervention. If a user-defined time window is exceeded during the processing of flattening jobs, the software automatically adjusts the flattening setting, allowing for faster processing of files and improving the overall system performance.

Companies using a HP Indigo press can avoid unnecessary click costs with the help of GMG ColorServer, as unused channels are simply removed. An interesting side effect is that the Indigo’s printing speed is significantly increased.

GMG Product manager Jens Bloeck concludes with another point: “With GMG ColorServer 5.4, we are introducing in-software update notifications. Users no longer need to actively search for new releases.”

In 2024, we are looking at full recovery and growth-led investment in Indian printing

Indian Printer and Publisher founded in 1979 is the oldest B2B trade publication in the multi-platform and multi-channel IPPGroup. It created the category of privately owned B2B print magazines in the country. And by its diversification in packaging, (Packaging South Asia), food processing and packaging (IndiFoodBev) and health and medical supply chain and packaging (HealthTekPak), and its community activities in training, research, and conferences (Ipp Services, Training and Research) the organization continues to create platforms that demonstrate the need for quality information, data, technology insights and events.

India is a large and tough terrain and while its book publishing and commercial printing industry have recovered and are increasingly embracing digital print, the Indian newspaper industry continues to recover its credibility and circulation. The signage industry is also recovering and new technologies and audiences such as digital 3D additive printing, digital textiles, and industrial printing are coming onto our pages. Diversification is a fact of life for our readers and like them, we will also have to adapt with agility to keep up with their business and technical information needs.

India is one of the fastest growing economies in nominal and real terms – in a region poised for the highest change in year to year expenditure in printing equipment and consumables. Our 2024 media kit is ready, and it is the right time to take stock – to emphasize your visibility and relevance to your customers and turn potential markets into conversations.
