GMG also announced the release its proof control software for digital printing made available from its version 2.4. "We are meeting industry demands with the support of the digital standard Fogra PSD (process standard for digital production): process stability and quality assurance are playing an increasingly important role in digital printing," said Jens Bloeck, product manager at GMG.
GMG ProofControl can be used to import and verify control strips for print standards. If the proof corresponds to the target values, then a label is printed out as a seal of approval and is attached to the proof. This is how proofs can be objectively measured and serve as a legally binding basis for an order.
The software also offers further customisation options like creating specific colour rule sets which can be largely beneficial to packaging printing. It also provides Microsoft Excel and XML support apart from improved performance in handling larger volumes of measurement data due to the 64-bit design of the application.
