Esko and GMG release ArtPro+ GMG OpenColor Connector
Esko-Graphics BV. and GMG GmbH & Co. KG have partnered to deliver a new connection between GMG’s profiling and color prediction solution, GMG OpenColor, and Esko’s native prepress editing software, ArtPro+. The connector will be launched in November 2022.
Creating a smoother and more efficient color conversion process for packaging and label printers, trade shops and premedia houses, the new ArtPro+ GMG OpenColor Connector enhances the connectivity and data exchange between the two class-leading solutions. This integration ensures uninterrupted file processing and color conversion, without losing mission-critical metadata between systems – allowing both solutions to operate at their best.
The new connector will deliver wide ranging benefits for customers using ArtPro+ and GMG OpenColor, including the creation of a standardized and automated process for color matching and reseparation of multi-color image and vector data, eliminating manual work, reducing the risk of errors and saving up to 60 minutes of operator time per job.
As ArtPro+ can modify colors, it is now simple and quick to add file edits after conversion for Multi Color Process Printing. The connector will also feature enhanced color precision on press through standardizing color conversion using GMGs enhanced spectral color technology and the ability to retain mission-critical metadata to deliver a seamless and highly efficient prepress workflow. It will offer increased flexibility for printers through rapid and precise prepress setup, thereby reducing pressure on time and resources.
