contone printer

A laser printer that begins to approach continuous tone quality by varying the dot size. However, unlike continuous tone, which can blend inks more thoroughly, contone has a limited number of dot sizes, and dithering is still used to make up shades. See continuous tone.



continuous tone

A printing process that produces photographic-like output. In a continuous tone image, pixel patterns (individual dots) are either not visible or are barely visible under a magnifying glass. Various dye sublimation and laser technologies can provide up to 256 intensities of color and even blend the inks. See contone printer and dye sublimation printer.
