Imagesetting is the new word for phototypesetting. Today's imagesetters do more than just set type: they set images and graphics, as well, through PostScript, the standard for controlling laser printers. Most imagesetters were designed to be used in digital pre-press and are capable of reproducing colour photographs and graphics in great detail. The main advantage of an imagesetter over a laser printer is that they print at between 1200 and 5000 dots per inch (versus 300-600 for laser printers). Imagesetters also output directly to film, which is more stable than paper, and at much larger sizes: some imagesetters can output 20"x24" or larger.
