Request for info on color printers and plotters
Date: Mon, 25 Sep 89 13:15 EST
From: PMILLER%BOWDOIN.BITNET@CUNYVM.CUNY.EDU (Pete Miller,
Bowdoin College is currently planning a fairly advanced graphics system
for environmental sciences research. The system will be based on a Mac IIci
and medium-resolution monitor. We will need as much of a color printer
and plotter as we can afford, and I'd appreciate hearing from any of
you about your own opinions, experiences, and perhaps advice about
other on-line lists I should query.
So far, all I have collected is a strong set of recommendations that
QMS and SEIKO have the best color printer hardware, but I don't have
specs on anything.
100 dpi resolution is probably more than we need -- we really need only
to match the monitor resolution, which may in the 600 dpi range. I'm not
yet familiar with paper widths, but we haven't come up with a need
for anything more than 12" - 15".
Thanks for your help!

We are using a Tektronix 4693RGB color printer for our Symbolics. The
resolution is 300 dpi and it can be used with any standard RGB signals
such as Sun, Silicon Graphics, Symbolics, etc. Tektronix makes a
similar color printer for the Mac. I am very impressed with this machine
and it is only ~$8000.
