GMG ColorProof 5.11 Provides Automated Update Notifications
Color management specialist GMG’s (PRINTING United Booth 10561) latest version of its popular proofing solution GMG ColorProof includes numerous sophisticated features that pay off in many ways for users.
“Automated notification of new patches may sound simple, but it’s an important tool for the workflow and the daily work of our customers,” said GMG Product Manager Jens Bloeck. “The update to Adobe PDF Print Engine 5.1 is also a benefit — it enables our customers to be on an equal level with technical progress.”
Automated Patch Notifications
GMG ColorProof 5.11 automatically announces new patches at application start. With a single click, the patch is installed, and the required restart of the software is executed. The new feature provides a clear benefit for all users, eliminating manual downloads, installation and rebooting. Also, no patch is missed, while the effort for the user is reduced to a minimum. To keep the time factor as low as possible and not interrupt the workflow, major software updates are treated separately, and users have the option to install patches at a later time.
Adobe PDF Print Engine 5.1
ColorProof 5.11 ensures compatibility with the latest Adobe products to keep up with the state of the art and deliver consistent results. The RIP integrated in GMG ColorProof is based on the Adobe PDF Print Engine (APPE) and complies with the update to APPE 5.1, the latest standard. ColorProof 5.11 users now have access to the latest PDF 2.0 technology and its many advantages. Thanks to APPE 5.1, both digital and commercial printing can exploit the full potential of functions such as spectral data for spot colors or black point compensation.
GMG ColorProof GO
The new web-based proofing tool GMG ColorProof GO, which was first published in the prior version of GMG ColorProof, enables users to monitor their job processing and printers from any location. The job list now includes job name, printer and current status, as well as details such as image names, proof conditions, verification status, dimensions and color channels. The printers view lists all devices connected to GMG ColorProof and the current calibration status of the printer. At a glance, you can also see users, locations and their permissions.
