Posted: May 6, 2014

GMG, supplier of high-end color management and proofing solutions, announced that its ColorProof version 4.5.2 will incorporate new RIP interpreter technology based on the latest Adobe PDF Print Engine technology.

PDF has been accepted as the de facto standard for dependable and more secure electronic information exchange in the graphic arts industry. Adobe Acrobat is the leading software for streamlining creative workflows and managing PDF files. Implementation of the Adobe PDF Print Engine technology in GMG ColorProof now guarantees 100% compatibility with Adobe Acrobat software and Adobe Creative Suite versions 2 and 3. For GMG users, this means that GMG ColorProof produces precisely the same results as displayed in Adobe Acrobat.

Additional benefits include enhanced font handling with fewer errors, optimized transparency handling and qualitatively better support of PDF and PDX files. Further, new PDF specifications can be implemented much faster than in previous versions.

In addition to integrating Adobe PDF Print Engine technology, GMG ColorProof 4.5.2 also features other new functions, such as: Halftone proof support of the HP Z 6100; The high-quality mode of the Epson 4880, 7880 and 9880 with smoother appearance; High-speed printing for form proofs, likewise for the Epson 4880, 7880 and 9880; and 16-bit support for data import.

Version 4.5.2 is available free of charge to users of GMG ColorProof 4.5 and customers with a service agreement. Owners of an older version can purchase the update from authorized GMG dealers.
