With the release of GMG ProofMedia studio OBA semiMatte 200, GMG once more expands its offering with a substrate for accurate proofing and reliable colour communication. Designed primarily for publication printing, GMG’s latest media is characterised by its light weight, flat-matte surface, and enhanced gloss.
The substrate is suited for proofing of products printed on coated material containing optical brightening agents (OBAs), such as magazines, brochures, or packaging. As both job and publication printing depend on proofing with OBA media, GMG’s latest addition to its wide-ranged proof media portfolio is the ideal substrate for users in these fields. GMG ProofMedia studio OBA semiMatte 200 aligns smoothly with thickness and coating of typical production papers in publication printing due to its light grammage, flat-matte surface texture, and a slight gloss. Thanks to precise development and years of experience in the proofing market, GMG has produced a proof media qualified for all application fields within FOGRA 51.
GMG ProofMedia studio OBA semiMatte 200 is the designated successor of semiMatte light, a proof media of former GMG ProofPaper line. As industry trends had already indicated when GMG’s studio line first was launched in 2017, the use cases of previous semiMatte light were demanding for the introduction of optical brightening agents. With new GMG ProofMedia studio OBA semiMatte 200, the main areas of application of past GMG ProfPaper semiMatte light can now be covered by an improved substrate offering the well-known quality and consistency of GMG products.
The media will be available in rolls of 35 metre length and the following widths: 43.1cm (17”), 60.9 (24”), and 111.7cm (44”). Software support of GMG ProofMedia studio OBA semiMatte 200 starts with GMG ColorProof 5.11.2 and GMG OpenColor 2.3.
