GMG Academy to Offer Color Management Training Program at drupa 2016
TÜBINGEN, Germany—January 28, 2016—This year, guests can take the opportunity to come for drupa, and stay for more. GMG, the leading developer and supplier of high-end color management and workflow software solutions, announces that its global color management experts will be conducting a complete, hands-on color management training event, GMG Academy, concurrent with drupa, from June 9-11, at its headquarters based here. The event lets those interested in color management combine two educational opportunities: the industry's most comprehensive exhibition, with the most thorough color management seminar.
The highly interactive workshop will guide attendees through the latest industry news and standards, offer training with resident GMG color scientists in the company's latest solutions, and provide personalized technical insight to improve current color management processes.
Attendees will be driven to GMG headquarters during the evening of June 8, attend comprehensive color 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 Color Management
On June 9, attendees can elect to attend either basic or advanced sessions. 'The color management basics: DeltaE, Lab, CMYK & Co.' course offers a complete overview of standardization 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 color science' sessions will explain 'behind the scenes' of GMG ColorProof, MX color processing, ICC vs. MX4 color 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 optimization 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 percent 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," explained 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?"
