The optimised media library makes it easier to organise materials directly in GMG OpenColor.

The optimised media library in GMG OpenColor 2.3 makes it easier to organise materials directly in the software. Previous versions already made it possible to save custom media and reuse them. As of GMG OpenColor 2.3, all customised substrates will be shown at one place and changes to the properties of a media are automatically applied to all projects in which the corresponding media is used. This feature grants consistency in paper tint, even across different jobs, and with this automation ensures the correct output of proofs. In addition, operators do not have to edit each project manually but can rely on considerable time savings. The latest version of the software is accompanied by an expanded media and colour spectrum.

GMG OpenColor 2.3 now supports GMG ProofMedia studio OBA semiMatte 200, a recently released addition to the proof media portfolio.

Thanks to its low weight, flat matte texture and optical brightening agents, the new media is suitable for all applications using OBA substrates. The new PANTONE inks are included in GMG OpenColor 2.3; 294 colours have been added to the PANTONE Solid Coated and Uncoated database and are available to GMG OpenColor users after updating. Murray Davies curves can now be visualised at the same time as Spot Color Tone Value (SCTV) curves with a single click, making it easier and clearer to correct the dot gain curves. If you want to deepen your knowledge on topics such as SCTV, GMG can help. With its in-house Academy, the company offers options for further education in addition to products. According to customs, free webinars and extensive workshops will be part of the Academy program in the coming year.
