GMG updates ColorServer 5.0 with more automation

Colour management tool gains new features including hotfolder-based automation to raise safety and productivity

Germany GMG has introduced ColorServer 5.0 featuring an improved hotfolder-based automation designed for maximum productivity and process safety.

GMG 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,” said Thomas Kunz, head of GMG product management.

“With GMG ColorServer 5.0 and the GMG MX technology, press-ready files can be created automatically in reproducible quality.”

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. “GMG ColorServer’s 5.0 dynamic hotfolder concept simplifies your work because multiple hotfolders reference one template,” said Kunz. “If you switch to another printing standard, only the template is changed and all hotfolders adapt accordingly.” It’s even possible to assign incoming data to a printing standard by simply naming the file accordingly.

To increase productivity and output quality of whole prepress setups, GMG ColorServer 5.0 can be integrated in almost any thirdparty workflow application.
