GMG of Tuebingen, Germany, has released its GMG ProofMedia studio OBA matte 150, which is the company’s first matte surface proofing media containing high Optical Brightening Agents (OBAs). GMG explains it has been developed for highly accurate proofing and the closest visual match of commonly used uncoated production papers.
In the past, explains GMG, it was problematic for design agencies, prepress and print companies to deliver a visual match between proofs and prints, even with good colorimetric measurement, as matte proofing media contains no or too little fluorescence.
GMG’s new OBA matte 150 media features fluorescent levels, according to the company, comparable to popular production papers, for visual matches to final production. This includes the FOGRA52 printing condition.
GMG studio OBA matte 150 not only contains high OBA, but also has a higher brightness level. As a result, the company explains OBA matte 150 provides a larger colour gamut in highlight areas compared to many other proof media. More specifically, it holds a paper tint of L* 97; a* 2,5; b* -10. The recyclable production is available in 17, 24, 42 and 44-inch widths.
