GMG OpenColor 2.2 offers integrated measurement data optimization
October 22, 2018 By PrintAction Staff
Colour management specialist GMG has released version 2.2 to its GMG OpenColor profiling solution, which incorporates automatic, spectral data-based optimization of measurement data.
GMG OpenColor explains the user measures test charts or colour 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, users can create a colour-accurate profile in only a few steps, the company explains. CxF/X-4 support according ISO 17972-4 makes the new GMG OpenColor version complete: Now, spectral values along with dot gain steps can be communicated to other parties involved in a print production.
