GMG launches ColorServer 5.0 with improved automation

GMG has launched the new ColorServer 5.0, which comes with an improved hotfolder based automation designed for maximum productivity and process safety.

ColorServer's automatic colour conversion ensures consistent print results across all printing processes and substrates – be it industry or in-house standards.

"Retouching multiple files manually can be complex, and does not guarantee repeatable results. With ColorServer 5.0 and the GMG MX technology, press ready files can be created automatically in reproducible quality," explained GMG head of product management Thomas Kunz.

GMG ColorServer 5.0 even allows an accurate and cost efficient conversion of spot colours into process colours. 

Thanks to the new client server architecture, the server can operate on any computer in a network with multiple users accessing it in parallel. As the processing load is automatically distributed to the connected computers, production peaks are covered and parallel file processing is possible.

As all hotfolders are managed centrally, any client can convert files without expert knowledge. Thomas explained, "GMG ColorServer's 5.0 dynamic hotfolder concept simplifies your work because multiple hotfolders reference one template. If you switch to another printing standard, only the template is changed and all hotfolders adapt accordingly." 

It is even possible to assign incoming data to a printing standard by simply naming the file accordingly. To increase productivity and output quality of whole pre-press set ups, ColorServer 5.0 can be integrated in almost any third party workflow application.

The optional, fully integrated SmartProfiler extends GMG ColorServer 5.0 with profiling functionality. The Paper Adaptation Tool guarantees close visual matches to printing conditions or standards adapting the colour output space to the production paper.
