GMG commits to digital print standards

GMG has increased its commitment to the creation of global digital print standards with the announcement that 13 members of the global GMG Professional Services Team have completed the internationally recognized certification DPE (digital print expert) of Fogra e.V. (Graphic Technology Research Association).

Process stability and output consistency in digital print production is still an area where standards are required. All certified members of GMG’s Professional Service team are now authorized to prepare and conduct Process Standard Digital (PSD) audits with their customers.

'GMG has long held the belief that an industrially-orientated, standardized process for digital print production is a crucial component for the continued growth of all areas of digital print production,' said Volker Wechselberger (pictured, top), operations director at GMG.

'GMG ProductionSuite, for example, produces results complying with the Fogra PSD standard within a single solution: File preparation including file preflight as well as color management and job submission, according to the PSD handbook, is easily performed with just a few mouse clicks. The tight interface between the pre-press application editor and the RIP reduces errors and speeds up the entire process in a standardized way.

'For a digital print services provider, attaining Fogra PSD certification delivers the benefits of a faster, more cost-effective production workflow, a higher and more consistent quality of output, coupled with reduced costs and wastage.'
