We have a Kodak dye-sublimation printer that does 300 dpi
continuous-tone with a nominal 8 bits per channel. Eyeball
measurements of the contrast and gamut suggest it's really more like 7
bits per channel but it's certainly much better than 8-bit colour.
More expensive machines with higher resolution and wider output gamut
are available, including ones which use lasers to write onto
For us, not being able to print IDL-generated 24-bit output
without jaggies is a major tear jerker and is one of the reasons why
my love of IDL is strictly bounded.
