The colour management software specialist said ProductionSuite 2.0 was targeted at printers and firms producing vehicle wraps, banners, indoor and outdoor large format signage and point-of-sale materials.

Highlights include an updated version of SmartProfiler, a calibration and profiling tool, to profile all combinations of printers, media and inks, and a new interior decoration option to support digitised creation and printing of textiles and wallpapers.

The ProductionSuite modular system includes a pre-press file editor and RIP as well as the SmartProfiler and PrintStation. The new version supports more than 200 additional output devices bringing the total supported to more than 1,000. Prices start at €3,000 (£2,552).

The updated SmartProfiler within ProductionSuite 2.0 has a new user interface and now operates on OS X and Windows platforms. It also creates optimised test chart layouts for wide format printers.

According to GMG wide format director Markus Finkbeiner the latest version makes profile creation even easier through features like automatic rendering intent.

He said: “While most profiling and colour management tools may require a number of trial-and-error steps to obtain a satisfactory separation, this takes responsibility for building the profile.”

GMG is also releasing ProductionSuite-Focus Edition, an entry-level-price version meant for print firms that want to bundle a complete workflow, instead of solely a RIP, when buying a new digital printer.
