color servers

Looking for opinions on Color Servers such as gretagmacbeths !Queue.

Is this the way to go for consistency
Is there a better or different way than a color servers
What is out there besides IQueue server

What are the drawbacks

Just starting to research this so all information is useful


Last I heard IQueue was “discontimued”, i.e. no longer supported/updated…don’t think it runs in OSX.

Theres a few other options. Alwans CMYK Optimizer is particularly interesting and I’ve heard good things about GMG Color Server, the latter being a 4-D propreitary solution (non-ICC). I plan on getting a demo soon. There are vaious other means to do this also…Dalim Twist for example, and some PDF specific converters.
