GMG Integrates with PantoneLIVE for Color Proofs


TÜEBINGEN, GERMANY | GMG announces a cooperative agreement with X-Rite that allows GMG customers to access the PantoneLIVE ecosystem and color libraries, through its GMG OpenColor and GMG ColorProof platforms.

Company says the integration of PantoneLIVE with GMG OpenColor and ColorProof allows GMG customers to work globally using the same database and to generate spot colors that meet PantoneLIVE color standards and brand owners' specifications quickly.

"We are excited to offer our ever-growing packaging community the ability to connect our award winning spectral proofing solution to the platform of choice for brand owners and suppliers," says Victor Asseiceiro, director of the Packaging Business Unit at GMG. "One of the most difficult challenges facing a converter today is accurate and reliable communication of color data between all parties in the supply chain.

Pantone is the de facto method of specifying brand colors in many industries, and its integration within GMG products gives customers the most complete and accurate platform for color proofing and management on the market today." PantoneLIVE is a cloud-based, color management service that now maintains 22 generic packaging-relevant color libraries for carton, flexible packaging, and label applications.

GMG OpenColor is said to precisely predict spot-to-process overprint and save costs by reducing the number of press fingerprints or press trials required and reducing lengthy makereadies and to eliminate the need for printing combinations of overprints, spot, and process through the use of color control strips and software that takes into account substrate properties. GMG ColorProof software solution for producing digital, absolute color-accurate contract proofs contains all the components needed for high-end proofing applications, including calibrations and color profiles, company adds.

Customers of GMG OpenColor and ColorProof platforms have immediate and seamless access to the PantoneLIVE cloud.
