GMG OpenColor’s new optimised media library makes it easier to organise materials within the application.
The previous version made it possible to save custom media and reuse them later. Now with version 2.3, all customised substrates will be shown in one place and changes to the properties of a media are automatically applied to all projects in which the corresponding media is used. The new feature grants consistency in paper tint, even for different jobs, and this automation ensures the correct output of proofs. In addition, operators of GMG OpenColor do not have to edit each project manually saving considerable time.
The latest version of the software is also accompanied by an expanded media and colour spectrum. OpenColor 2.3 now supports GMG ProofMedia studio OBA semiMatte 200 – a recently released addition to the proof media portfolio. Thanks to its low weight, flatmatte texture, and optical brightening agents, the new media is particularly suitable for all applications using OBA substrates. The new Pantone inks are also included in OpenColor 2.3. A total of 294 colours have been added to the Pantone Solid Coated and Uncoated database and are available to GMG OpenColor users after updating.
‘Murray-Davies’ curves can now be visualised at the same time as spot colour tone value (SCTV) curves with a single click, making it easier and clearer to correct the dot gain curves. If you want to deepen your knowledge on topics such as SCTV, GMG is the right choice. With its in-house GMG Academy, the Tuebingen based company offers options for further education in addition to its products. Free webinars and extensive workshops will be part of the GMG Academy programme in the coming year.
