The Color Conference has an 18-year track record providing the latest information to more than 250 colour gurus, brand managers, and anyone with colour focus. It is the resource for tools and strategies to manage accurate brand colour across the entire workflow including multiple devices, multiple processes, and multiple printing sites.
“It just makes sense that GMG, who has provided colour management solutions for a wide range of graphics solutions—from agencies to commercial, packaging and wide format printers of all sizes—should take a leadership role at the 2018 Color Conference,” comments Joseph Varone, GMG Americas President. “GMG not only provides a wide portfolio of solutions; we also offer extensive classes and training on all facets of colour. We look forward to imparting some of our wisdom at the Color Conference.”
A number of ways to benefit from GMG’s colour expertise
GMG will offer three presentations and staff a literature display table at the conference. The sessions include:
- On Monday, January 15, from 11:10am to 12:10pm, Birgit Plautz, GMG Americas Manager of Technical Services, will be presenting “Expanded gamut separation the right way”. Expanded gamut has many benefits, including the ability to print more in-gamut spot colours, a reduction in the need for spot colour plates and ink, and—of course—more colourful graphics. During this session, Birgit Plautz will guide attendees through the necessary steps to convert an RGB file to an extended colour gamut, while achieving consistent, accurate colour results. Examples will be provided that show files processed through at least two different print production workflows.
- Early on Monday afternoon at 1:10pm, Eric Dalton, Director of Sales for GMG Americas, will offer a presentation about “Remote proofing: How global brands are doing it right”. It’s vital to communicate, replicate, and deliver accurate colour for brands on a global scale. One of the most valuable uses of colour management is remote, colour-accurate proofing. What does it take to set up this process, and make it happen anywhere in the world? Eric Dalton will co-present this topic along with a GMG customer who will share their experiences setting up multiple proofing locations across three continents—while producing repeatable, consistent contract proofs for brands.
- On Sunday, at 1:10pm, GMG’s Senior Technical Advisor, Juergen Seitz, will present an overview of GMG’s product line during the Sunday Sponsor Tech Track. Seitz will cover proofing, such as GMG ColorProof and GMG FlexoProof; solutions for agencies, including GMG ColorProof proofing, GMG CoZone content approval, and GMG ColorMaster RGB workflow; packaging colour management such as GMG FlexoProof and GMG ColorProof proofing, accurate simulation of the overprinting effects of spot colours with GMG OpenColor; and wide format/commercial print production, with GMG ColorServer automated colour management workflows, the easy-to-use GMG SmartProfile calibration, recalibration and profiling software, and GMG InkOptimizer to save ink and assure stable, optimized print runs.
”GMG has the breadth of knowledge to offer almost anyone beneficial assistance, no matter the print business,” concludes Varone. “Our experts look forward to these events, and await the opportunity to impart their expertise.”
