Besides Xionics, here is another company with products that can print compressed TIFF directly:

    JRL Systems, 8305 Highway 71 W, Austin, TX 78735
    (512)288-6750 FAX(512)288-7676 (800)PLOTNOW

Newer HP LaserJet printers will accept packbits compressed image data (in PCL5 or later, I think) but they don't do scaling or rotations.

HP SharedPrint has 'ilFilter' utility that should do this, but I'm not sure it's available on platforms other than HP-UX. Contact Hewlett Packard.

I'm not sure of much today because I'm just catching up on e-mail after vacation.
