GMG and Creo Develop Color-Management Proofing Solutions

Including co-branded front-end for Veris proofer

Big Picture

Creo and GMG Weihing have signed an agreement to develop new color-management solutions for proofing. The first product will be a cobranded front end to drive the Creo Veris proofer, with field testing scheduled to begin in August.

The front end for the Veris proofer will be based on GMG's ColorProof system, and will consist of a 4-D color transformation engine, profile editor/creator, RIP, and output module. The Creo Veris proofer provides high-resolution proofs based on Creo-developed Multi-Drop Array? inkjet imaging. It produces a controlled stream of precisely formed and placed drops at 1500 x 1500 dpi with the repeatability necessary to predict what the final printed job will look like.

The Creo Veris and GMG solution will be targeted toward higher-end contract-proofing, including the packaging market. GMG has more than 10 years of experience integrating Creo's Iris inkjet proofers. (GMG Weihing: www.colorproof.de; Creo: www.creo.com).
