Importing color targets from GMG OpenColor into MeasureColor


  • Available from MeasureColor versions 21.1 and later
  • License restrictions apply. Please contact your reseller if you need to add the connection to your MeasureColor license.

From the System management module, select System → GMG OpenColor servers

A list of servers appears (this might be empty until you add one). Click the green [Add item] button.

  1. You can give a connection a name for easy reference (this will be displayed when importing references)
  2. Enter the address where the openColor server can be found in the network.

You can add several openColor servers to the same MeasureColor server. All openColor servers added here will become available to all MeasureColor clients that use a GMG openColor enabled license.

URL setting tricks

  • The openColor server typically runs on port 8080
  • You should know the IP address of the PC running the openColor server and add :8080. If the openColor server would run on, the full url should read
  • All kind of variations exist on URL settings, connection might be blocked by proxies, firewalls and virusscanners. Please check with your local IT manager how to proceed if the above examples do not result in proper connections.
