Tuebingen, Germany-based GMG, developer and supplier of high-end color management and proofing solutions, announces the launch of a  proofing system comprising Canon's new image PROGRAF iPF8300/iPF6350/iPF6300 inkjet printers and  GMG ColorProof, GMG FlexoProof XG and GMG DotProof XG contone and halftone proofing solutions. The Canon printer has been optimized for GMG's inkjet proofing substrates.

This joint solution is the result of extensive technological collaboration between GMG and Canon, bringing to market an integrated software and hardware package for high-end contract proofing applications that meet both GMG and Canon quality standards.

GMG's ColorProof contone proofing software and the FlexoProof XG and DotProof XG halftone proofing modules enable the GMG/Canon proofing system to achieve maximum color accuracy and repeatability. GMG DotProof and GMG FlexoProof produce color-accurate halftone proofs by directly processing 1-bit imagesetter data. Thus, they can be proofed inexpensively on inkjet printers.

Canon imagePROGRAF iPF8300/iPF6350/iPF6300 printers have been specifically designed for the high-end graphic arts market, including photographic, fine art and proofing applications. It adopts the newly developed unique 12-pigment ink printing system "Lucia EX", providing a 20% wider color gamut compared with previous models and delivering precise prints with exceptional scratch resistance.
