From design to final print, properly managing color is essential to the success of a printed product. Proper color management requires that all visual color appraisal be made under lighting conditions that conform to the ISO 3664:2009 viewing standard. GTI offers viewing solutions for sheetfed, digital, web, and hybrid print workflows of all sizes.
The CVX family of D50 color viewing stations provides superior light evenness, excellent rear wall illumination, and enhanced energy efficiency.

GTI offers desktop, floor stand, overhead luminaires, and press console soft proofing solutions.
