Printing on an Imagesetter

Most documents that are printed professionally by a commercial printer are reproduced from master copies printed on an imagesetter. Imagesetters such as the Linotronic 330 can output pages on photosensitive paper or film at resolutions up to 3386 dpi. The maximum resolution is dependent on the imagesetter, but most imagesetters can print at 1200 and 2400 dpi. (Linotronic imagesetters print at 1270 and 2540, while most other brands print at 1200 and 2400 dpi.)

Printing on an imagesetter is similar to printing on a desktop printer, except that you will normally have to specify additional options.
