GMG Academy offers colour management training program

GMG Academy

GMG has announced that its global colour management experts will be conducting a complete, hands-on colour management training event, GMG Academy, concurrent with drupa, from June 9-11 at its headquarters in Tübingen, Germany. The event lets those interested in colour management combine two educational opportunities: the industry's most comprehensive exhibition, with the most thorough colour management seminar.

The highly interactive workshop will guide attendees through the latest industry news and standards, offer training with resident GMG colour scientists in the company's latest solutions, and provide personalised technical insight to improve current colour management processes.

Attendees will be driven to GMG headquarters during the evening of June 8, attend comprehensive colour management sessions from June 9-10, and participate in an optional sightseeing tour on June 11. Individual travel plans will be offered to guests, who will have the option to return to Düsseldorf on June 10 or 11, depending upon departing flights.

Training content: An immersion into colour management

On June 9, attendees can elect to attend either basic or advanced sessions. 'The colour management basics: DeltaE, Lab, CMYK & Co.' course offers a complete overview of standardisation and profiling processes. Topics will include lighting, the difference between ISO standards, definition of a fingerprint, understanding profile settings, and more.

The more advanced 'Deep dive colour science' sessions will explain 'behind the scenes' of GMG ColorProof, MX color processing, ICC vs. MX4 colour profiles, and insights to the magic behind GMG OpenColor—among other topics.

On June 10, GMG will offer best practices tips and tricks, an interactive workshop covering questions about GMG products. While attendees are encouraged to submit questions before the event, topics will also include the Epson SC-P Series, a closer look into profiling: profile optimisation and visual correction, and remote proofing.

Each evening, GMG experts will guide visitors through the German nightlife, including the best restaurants in town. Those who stay an optional third day will go sightseeing throughout this beautiful region of Germany.

The complete package includes:

  • Transfer from drupa (Düsseldorf) to GMG headquarters in Tübingen, and back
  • Four nights' hotel stay
  • Two full days of training and nightly activities
  • A third day of sightseeing around the gorgeous Germany countryside

The cost for the complete package is 2400€ (excl. VAT). Those who register before January 31 receive a 15% early bird discount (360€).

"GMG knows that many people would value a trip to our headquarters to receive the most comprehensive education about color management, but those who live far away may not be able to rationalize the expense," explains Jessica Landherr, GMG Academy Manager. "What better way is there to get immersed in industry technology than attending drupa and tying it with a trip to GMG at Tübingen?"
