Remote Calibration Wizard - Free Application
GMG, supplier of high-end color management and proofing solutions,
introduces the GMG Remote Calibration Wizard, an easy to use remote
calibration tool for GMG ColorProof that supports wizard-based calibration
and recalibration of printers at remote proofing sites. It allows
users at remote sites to calibrate their digital printers to GMG precision
without purchasing or installing the ColorProof application themselves.
In the past, to calibrate a printer at their remote site, users either
had to purchase the proofing application themselves-or, a test chart
would be generated by a host system that had to be returned via courier
to the host company's office, where it could be calibrated. "Why
should a print buyer be burdened with buying a proofing application
just to calibrate their remote digital printer?" suggests Jim
Summers, president of GMG Americas. "GMG wanted to simplify this
process. That's why we now offer a free, standalone application that
allows a remote user to calibrate from their location with the help
of a host ColorProof system."
Using the Remote Calibration Wizard simplifies administration and
maintenance of remote proofing sites. It is available to, and compatible
with, all existing and future ColorProof customer sites.
The new wizard-based user interface allows precise calibration, even
for users with no previous color experience or skills. When a user
is ready to calibrate a system, the standalone calibration application
sends a request to the host's ColorProof system to send a test chart.
Once the test chart is printed to the remote, networked digital printer,
the customer uses a spectrophotometer to enter the results into the
application. Those results are automatically sent back to the host
ColorProof system, which makes any necessary adjustments.
The Remote Calibration Wizard is fully compatible with all printers
and measuring instruments that are supported by GMG, such as Epson,
HP, and Canon printers and X-rite and Gretag measuring instruments.
It supports GMG ColorProof's built-in remote proofing capabilities,
included with every system.
With the recently introduced HP Designjet Z2100 digital printer, the
remote calibration process is even easier. Because this printer has
its own, built-in spectrophotometer, remote calibration is fully automatic.
The user just asks the system to calibrate the printer at the remote
site, and the printer and GMG software do the rest, without any manual
"While remote proofing has been an afterthought, add-on with
some products, GMG built in this feature over 15 years ago. All current
and previous versions of GMG ColorProof include remote proofing, and
this new tool makes administration of remote sites even easier,"
remarks Summers. "The Remote Calibration Wizard is simply one
more step in the evolution of an already great remote proofing solution."
The new standalone calibration system will be demonstrated during
Graph Expo at the GMG booth,#4663. It is available to GMG customers-for
distribution to their own print buyers-from GMG resellers and the
support page on the GMG web site.
