You see, Brisque works only on IBM RISC systems and fastest has 6 processors (6F1 Condor model) on some 600MHz. Price for such system from Kodak/Creo was 27.000 USD (yes, twenty-seven thousand US dollars). There is a cheaper way around but has some flaws and includes buying PSM and a Mac. Also, your card to connect imagesetter must be Mac compatible.
Other way is to go for PC solution (Harlequin based RIPs can pilot most machines that Brisque can) but you have to check the connectivity and compatibility with your hardware.
I tested PSM 8, for ct/lw file produce, but it give an error on big file with many vector element. Brisque processing this file good, only slow.
PSM has problem that are 95% predictable in prepres. So, if you know them - avoid them.
But we find it impractical -- for us that was more than enough to open 1-bit manually and expose. I'll try to find documentation for you.
By the way, if you can control a compression in supplied TIFFs -- choose LZW. Brisque use it for TIFFs internally.
I'll try to start the exposure 1-bitt Tiff tomorrow.
I expose 1-bitt tiff very well! This can be used as a fallback.
I'm looking Creo 1- bit TIFF key for PSM 8.0.
