GMG has committed to digital print industries with its proactive support of the Fogra Process Standard Digital (PSD). Thirteen members of the global GMG Professional Services Team have already completed the internationally recognised certification DPE, Digital Print Expert of Fogra e.V. (Graphic Technology Research Association).

Achieving this certification is part of GMG’s continued commitment in addressing the issues of process stability and output consistency within all applications of digital print production. This expertise complements GMG’s ongoing mission of offering the best possible applications and services to the digital, large-format and grand-format print markets and allows GMG to offer an extended range of services and customer training programmes worldwide. All certified members of GMG’s Professional Service team are authorized to prepare and conduct Process Standard Digital (PSD) audits with their customers.

GMG has long held the belief that an industrially-orientated, standardised process for digital print production is a crucial component for the continued growth of all areas of digital print production, said Volker Wechselberger, 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 colour management and job submission, according to the PSD handbook, is easily performed with just a few mouse clicks. The tight interface between the prepress application Editor and the RIP reduces errors and speeds up the entire process in a standardised 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.
