GMG has announced the release of GMG OpenColor 1.1. Designed to enable brands and packaging press specialists to accurately predict spot colors, GMG OpenColor has won high-level recognition, including the 2013 InterTech Technology Award, the 2013 Flexographic Technical Association Technical Innovation Award and an Innovation Award from the ERA– European Rotogravure Association. New features in GMG OpenColor 1.1 extend its functionality further and include extended import of measurement data and further adjustment capabilities to the GMG OpenColor profiles. This new version of GMG OpenColor provides tools to adjust color intensity and dot gain. Users can define a target dot gain from a specific printing process or adjust dot gain measurements to compensate for possible faulty printing conditions, which can occur during reference print runs or color standard productions. GMG OpenColor 1.1 also gives users the ability to correct the substrate white point and add dot correction to the profile – without the need to recalculate the profile – to simulate the correct substrate colors and produce contract-level proofs.
