Default Printing lineart/bitmap images

In the past when I have scanned images in bitmap/lineart mode at 300dpi and sent them to offset printing, they came out pixelated.

I was told that if you scan bitmap at 800dpi and save as EPS, the printed image comes out "streamlined" without visible pixelation or raster.

Can anyone verify that?
