Global Graphics Software and GMG in strategic cooperation on inkjet color

Global Graphics Software and GMG announce a technology partnership that will overcome the color management and quality issues often found in digital packaging and label production.  The partnership will make GMG’s award-winning technology available within Fundamentals, Global Graphics Software’s toolkit for building a digital front-end for inkjet presses. Fundamentals is a software and engineering services package that helps inkjet press manufacturers get to market quicker.

Justin Bailey, managing director of Global Graphics Software comments “We are really excited to be working with the go-to company for high quality color management in the labels and packaging market. GMG’s unique technology enables brand colors to be accurately reproduced on a digital press without loss of color accuracy. It’s important in digital printing to be able to convert spot colors designed for a traditional press to the process colors available in digital. This enhancement to Fundamentals will benefit our OEM customers who need this capability in their DFE.”

Ian Scott, GMG managing director explains “High-speed inkjet technology continues to develop at an impressive rate. However, color management needs have not been fully addressed. The combination of Global Graphics DFE technology and GMG OpenColor prediction and profiling technology fulfils the ever-increasing quality and production demands. We are very pleased to be working with Global Graphics in overcoming the many challenges that lay ahead in the shift from analogue to digital production.”
