In the case of dot-matrix and laser printers, the resolution indicates the number of dots per inch. For example, a 300-dpi (dots per inch) printer is one that is capable of printing […]
- resolution enhancement
A collection of techniques used in many laser printers to enable the printer to print at a higher resolution than normal. Most laser printers have printer engines that print at either 300 dpi (dots per inch) or 600 dpi. Using clever algorithms that recognize curved lines, a printer with resolution enhancement can produce output whose […]
