GMG has announced the release of GMG ColorProof 5.5, a major update of its proofing software. GMG ColorProof has undergone an extensive rebuild to improve user interface speed. According to the company, the required time to create a new job from selecting the file until ready to print has been cut in half. GMG ColorProof startup time was reduced from 45 seconds to 10 seconds on GMG’s test system. It is also available as a real 64-bit setup, more compatible with Microsoft installation and security guidelines. It can allocate more RAM, allowing for faster processing. GMG ColorProof 5.5 comes with a new Manual Job Manager that offers a toolbar for the most common commands. Job status is clearly indicated with a green, orange or red color, giving the operator instant feedback. With more new GMG ColorProof features, a Database View offers color-related information such as proof standards and spot colors, while a separate view provides configuration settings.
